Our advanced microscopy laboratory is one of the prestigious partners of ZEISS Microscopy labs@location

The department personally and scientifically builds its activities on former Department of Cell Biology CRH. Research teams use integrated biotechnological, cellular biological, proteomic, genetic, molecular, physiological and biochemical approaches and technologies (including CRISPR/Cas9, TALEN, super-resolution and light-sheet microscopy) to better understand signaling in plants in relation to the development and the physiology of plant stress (abiotic and biotic). We also study plant interactions with beneficial and pathogenic microorganisms in model species Arabidopsis, Medicago and Hordeum. The department collaborates closely with top home and abroad research institutes. Our employees publish mainly in prestigious international scientific journals.
