Arte.tv about »Superplants - Die blühende Revolution«

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.

Evolutionary Functional Genomics & Metal Homeostasis Networks (Krämer)

In our research on Evolutionary Functional Genomics and Metal Homeostasis Networks, we pursue an interdisciplinary approach to develop a comprehensive understanding of the function and evolution of an important biological network. The advantage of plants as model organisms is their experimental flexibility and the ease of sampling of natural populations at locations where selection pressures that have shaped their evolution are still present. Genome sequence data, genomics tools, transformation techniques and knockout mutant collections have increasingly become available in the past decade and are being expanded rapidly.

Infrastructure

Our research is intended to improve our knowledge about plant metabolism and development. Thus, research programs are interdependent, and there are many methodological overlaps. At the institute, we use a broad and modern common infrastructure.
