The scientific Program


The GBF Laboratory is dealing with the multi-hormonal and epigenetic control of fruit set, development and ripening. Combined approaches of reverse genetics and transcriptomics are routinely used to unravel the molecular mechanisms underlying the transcriptional regulation associated with hormone signaling in the fruit.

The GBF addresses scientific questions which have a major impact on agriculture. In the long-term, our research aims to provide new concepts and to discover new genetic markers for plant breeding.
