Plant and Ecosystems (PLECO) - Ecology in a time of change University of Antwerp
Plant Sciences Research Institute for Agriculture, Fisheries and Food
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 Physiology Vrije Universiteit Brussel
Topic A : Biochemistry and molecular biology of plant cell wall degradation due to fungal and bacterial pectic enzymes (Fusarium, Pseudomonas) (Koedam N.) Molecular cloning, gene (product) and regulation analysis Investigation of virulence factors in Fusarium oxysporum induced wilting of chickpea and disease suppression by fluorescent Pseudomonas Topic B : siderophores of bacterial origin (Pseudomonas) : production, regulation and interaction ...
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 ...
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, ...
Department of Plant Biotechnology and Bioinformatics Ghent University
Department of Plants and Crops Ghent University
Molecular Biotechnology of Plants and Micro-organisms
The main fundamental research questions in the MBPM division are related to the elucidation of environmental-induced signal transduction pathways in yeast, pathogenic fungi and plants and how these pathways affect phenotypes such as growth, development (plants), immune priming, stress tolerance, fermentation capacity, morphogenesis and virulence. The fungal groups also use yeast as ...
Crop Biotechnics KU Leuven
The Division of Crop Biotechnics focuses its research and education on sustainable production of agricultural and horticultural products. We employ a variety of biotechnological methodologies to perform fundamental and applied plant research. We integrate knowledge at the cellular, tissue, plant, environment and agro-systems level for both model plants and economically important crops.
