We are focusing on three main topics that are biologically closely connected: Cell Cycle Control, Leaf Development, and Heterosis / Biomass Production. We team up with the subsequent 'wet-lab' research groups in our department. The aim of our research is two-fold: to identify novel genes involved in these biological processes, and to develop functional models that provide qualitative description with predictive power. These models thus can be seen as 'hypothesis-generating engines' that drive wet-lab experiments to provide additional data.
