Our major research topics

We apply nuclear magnetic resonance imaging and high-resolution analytic technologies to study seed performance in vivo. The allocation of assimilates and metabolic regulation of growth and storage processes is our current focus. Preferred plant models are crops like barley, wheat, maize and oilseed rapeseed. In order to improve versatility of our integrative approach, we also working on Arabidopsis, Hypericum, Tobacco and other plants in the frame of collaboration projects with other universities.
