Plant Sciences Institute for Agricultural and Fisheries Research

Plant Sciences studies agriculture, horticulture, energy crops and ornamentals. We study gene characteristics, plant reactions to environmental factors, population diversity, soil characteristics, and plant diseases and plagues. We breed new cultivars and innovate in crop protection and crop husbandry. The four research areas are Applied Genetics and Breeding, Crop Husbandry and Environment, Crop Protection, and Growth and Development.

Plant Genetics Vrije Universiteit Brussel


Research in the Laboratory of Plant Genetics concerns basic plant molecular genetics as well as applied research relevant to the plant biotechnology and agricultural sector. The research is focused on the following themes: · DNA repair and recombination mechanisms and methods to influence these processes. This may lead to development of improved plant breeding techniques, improved plant transformation technology and new techniques for ...

Department of Plant Biotechnology and Bioinformatics Ghent University

The mission of the department is to significantly contribute to solving the grand challenges by laying the scientific foundation for innovations and by enabling that such innovations find their way to society at large. The research is framed in the following five thematic areas providing important challenges and opportunities for plant research:Sustainable bio-energy and biobased productsClimate resilient cropsPlant diversityInnovative crop ...

Integrated Molecular Plant Physiology Research (IMPRES) University of Antwerp

Research topics of the research group Integrated Molecular Plant Physiology Research (IMPRES) :· Hormonal control of cell cycle progression and programmed cell death in higher plants.· Functional aspects of plant growth regulators in growth and development of higher plants.·The role of phytohormones in plant-microbe interaction (bacteria (symbionts, endosymbionts, rhizosphere, pathogens), protists)· Phytohormone synthesis by plant-associated ...

Department of Plant production Ghent University

There are four units active within the department focussing on different agriculturally important research areas: in vitro biology, horticulture, plant breeding, sustainable crop production, weed science, botanical diversity and ethnobotany.

Plant and Ecosystems (PLECO) - Ecology in a time of change University of Antwerp

The research group of Plant and Vegetation Ecology (PLECO) has an extensive and long-standing experience with the study of a wide range of subdisciplines in the domain of ecology, in particular the ecology of plants and vegetations. The continuum of different spatial scales is being bridged, ranging from the individual plant, over populations and plant communities (vegetations) to entire landscapes and regions. The present research (and ...

Molecular and Physical Plant Physiology Hasselt University


To assess the role played by the endogenous hormone balance on developmental processes, physiological responses are studied of plants, that has been genetically transformed and are characterized by an increased or decreased endogenous cytokinin content. Several plants, each characterized by a specific transformed genetic construction are used. The effect of the transformation (cytokinine- and CKX-plants) is studied on plant development, ...
