Research focus

Our research focus is the genetic and genomic dissection of maize and barley root development. To this end, we clone and characterize genes controlling root architecture and we investigate the molecular mechanisms of heterosis manifestation. Moreover, we are interested in how root systems react to abiotic stress such as drought or cold and how they interact with the rhizosphere.
