Diese Seite auf Deutsch

We are engaged in the regulation of photosynthesis and the integration of photosynthetic processes in the eukaryotic cell, focusing on intracellular signal transduction, posttranslational protein modification and synthetic biology. Furthermore, questions from the following areas are pursued: organelle inheritance, photomorphogenesis, thylakoid biogenesis, as well as genome evolution.


Our research covers the following fields

  • Novel photosynthetic genes/proteins

  • Reversible protein phosphorylation in thylakoids

  • Organelle-to-nucleus signalling

  • Organelle inheritance

  • Thylakoid biogenesis

  • Photomorphogenesis

  • Chloroplast-nucleus DNA transfer

  • Novel genetic resources in Arabidopsis thaliana
