Acclimation of Photosynthesis

Understanding the regulation of carotenoid biosynthesis and photoacclimation under dynamically changing environmental conditions.

We aim to better understand molecular and cellular processes that control acclimation of photosynthesis and photoprotection in leaves under fluctuating and dynamic environmental conditions. By combining novel experimental setups and sensors, we quantitatively analyze phenotypic changes at different levels (gene expression, biochemical composition, physiology and morphology) in the laboratory and greenhouse.
