Research infrastructures & field sites
IBG-2 hosts an extensive portfolio of research facilities and experimental fields
The application of the increased knowledge of molecular control mechanisms requires mulit-discinplinary approaches. On the basis of moelcular, physiological and ecological expertise, integrated concepts and infrastructures for an intensified and sustainable crop production are being established.
IBG-2 develops and runs mechanistic high-throughput and field phenotyping facilities ar various scales using non-invasive devices to measure key structural and functional parameters of plants above- and below-ground.
The methods portfolio includes:
- non-invasive quantification of growth, chlorophyll fluorescence, hyperspectral data, and
- automated plant screening facilities under controlled growth chamber and greenhouse conditions, as well as field plots.
The greenhouse offers different departments equipped with the most modern measuring devices and equipment for the simulation of dynamic environmental conditions
This experimental research greenhouse contains climate chambers for cultivating plants under field conditions
The ASC runs three different concepts of large-scale photobioreactor systems for research and biomass production of microalgae
The Klein-Altendorf campus is an experimental site of the University of Bonn
In 2012, the IBG-2 experimental field was established at Daubenrather Tor, in the immediate vicinity of the Jülich Research Center
