Research at Molecular Interaction Ecology

Extraction of Glucosinolates from Brassicaceae
Plant-Soil interactions

The mission of Molecular Interaction Ecology (MIE) is to unravel the molecular and chemical mechanisms governing interactions between plants and their biotic and abiotic environment. These mechanisms are studied using an integrated approach in which metabolomics and transcriptomics analyses are combined with measures of plant and insect performance. The ultimate goal is to understand the role of plant-based mechanisms in the establishment of aboveground and belowground biodiversity in natural communities.

The research in MIE focusses on the following themes:
