  • Scientific publication in Plant Physiology including WIWAM xy

    Although the response of plants exposed to severe drought stress has been studied extensively, little is known about how plants adapt their growth under mild drought stress conditions. Here, we analyzed the leaf and rosette growth response of six Arabidopsis thaliana accessions originating from different geographic regions, when exposed to mild drought stress. The automated phenotyping platform ...

  • Unearthing the Roots of Fungal Symbioses

    To understand the bases of mutualistic symbiosis between soil mycorrhizal fungi and plants, an international consortium of researchers conducted the first broad, comparative phylogenomic analysis of mycorrhizal fungi. Scientists describe how the comparative analyses of 18 new fungal genomes allowed them to track the evolution of symbiotic fungi interacting with trees, heath plants and orchids. ...

  • A flood of research data offers opportunities for new insights

    New DNA sequences, the results of thousands of trials in fields and glasshouses worldwide, three-dimensional images of plants – the flood of data produced by research and development is currently growing faster than the methods available for analyzing it. How can these data be captured, structured, made accessible and then examined in a way that will facilitate new findings? This question ...
