The research group Heterosis studies plant performance, primarily in the model plant Arabidopsis thaliana (thale cress) and the crop plants maize, oilseed rape and barley. Of particular interest are the molecular factors, processes and mechanisms that control growth under fluctuating environmental conditions, or that contribute to heterosis of biomass formation.

Climate models predict rising average temperatures and changes in the amount and distribution of precipitation. Crop yield is increasingly and adversely affected by drought and extreme temperatures. Plants must adjust their growth and metabolism dynamically to perform well in this often rapidly changing environment.

Investigations focus on biomass accumulation during the vegetative phase in shoot and root, as well as the quality of formed seeds. In order to analyse the molecular processes under relevant field-like conditions, state-of-the-art environment simulation and non-invasive phenotyping methods are combined with systems biology analysis procedures.

We use natural and induced biological variability to answer the question of how plants regulate their growth under changing environmental conditions. The aim is to identify (epi)genetic factors, as well as molecular and physiological mechanisms that influence and control plant performance under relevant dynamic environmental conditions. In doing so, plant cultivation under fully controlled, field-like environmental conditions also allows the simulation of cultivation conditions as they may occur in future climate scenarios. By modelling the complex molecular processes in the plant with the help of the phenotypic and molecular omics data obtained, the critical factors can be determined. Ultimately, this knowledge will inform the optimisation of breeding strategies to stabilise crop yields and product qualities under changing climatic conditions.
