Xylem Transport

Tasks

The Transport group investigates the processes of uptake, distribution and delivery of water and solutes by higher plants in order to gain an in-depth understanding of the underlying mechanisms by which their environment and genetic makeup determine their behaviour.

We expect this knowledge to be a basis for modifying transport pathways and driving forces, in order to improve the water and nutrient use efficiency and thereby the bioproduction of crops.

Konzept

Data from non- and minimal-invasive investigations of intact plants are combined with results from the investigation of transport processes on the cellular and subcellular level with sophisticated technological approaches.
