ERC Grant

ERC LogoProfessor Dr. Ute Krämer is delighted to receive a European Research Council Advanced Grant (ERC-AdG). In this five-year 2.5 Mio. € project, we will work towards an understanding of evolutionary adaptations of plants to the composition of their local soils. We will study how such adaptations arise in evolution, which are the contributing gene variants and how these variants act within their functional networks. The project focuses on diversity in the extremophile model plant Arabidopsis halleri. Central approaches are genome-wide association mapping, the mapping of quantitative trait loci using intra-species crosses and extensive transcriptomics studies. (News Release ERC | press release RUB}


Our mission is to develop an integrative molecular-functional understanding of plant interactions with their environment. We address the molecular mechanisms underlying plant acclimation to their dynamic environment as well as evolutionary adaptation in plants. Our work integrates the disciplines of genome-enabled functional genomics, molecular and cell biology, physiology, ecology and evolutionary biology. With a strong emphasis on comparative approaches between and within species, several of our projects combine labwork, the characterization of natural populations in the field and outdoor experiments.

Arte LogoDie Dokumentation geht dem Phänomen des sogenannten Phytomining beziehungsweise der Phytosanierung, der Entgiftung von verunreinigten Böden durch Pflanzen, auf den Grund. Ein Bericht über Ute Krämer und die Arbeit an unserem Lehrstuhl schliesst die Dokumentation von T. Krause und K. Uhrig ab. Ausgezeichnet mit dem UMSICHT-Wissenschaftspreis des Wissenschaftsforum Ruhr e.V.
