Lab of Plant Growth Analysis









The mission of the Laboratory of Plant Growth Analysis is to conduct systematic and comprehensive research towards plant growth and development, with a specific goal to foster crop improvement through integrated and multidisciplinary research on model plant systems.

Research topics include (1) novel biostimulants and their mode of action by developing rapid, and reliable phenotypic and molecular screening methods; (2) genome editing by targeting plant yield genes; (3) exploring the role of plant specific metabolites with a specific focus on cell elongation.

Next to that, the lab contributes to research-based teaching in several life science courses at GUGC, and prepares BA/MA/PhD students for careers in the field of plant science and plant biotechnology, both in academia and industry.
