Department of Applied Genetics and Cell Biology (DAGZ)

We aim to understand genetic programs and cell biology processes in fungi, plants and humans.

We investigate how these programs regulate growth, adaptation to changing environmental or nutritional conditions and disease development. 

Our knowledge forms the basis for biotechnological and agronomic applications and provides new technological platforms for bio-economy concepts.
