Paul Plant Ghent University
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 ...

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, ...
