Research Group: Plastid and thylakoid dynamics

Our research ambitions aim on dissecting regulatory mechanisms that involve thylakoid membrane protein phosphorylation and elucidating their impact on photosynthetic acclimation to variable environmental conditions.

Further we investigate processes that modulate thylakoid membrane plasticity under such abiotic stress conditions and apply our knowledge on membrane plasticity in bioengineering approaches.

Improving photosynthetic efficiency to increase yield and biomass production holds the promise to meet the increasing demand for arable land for food production and other biological products. To achieve this, one has to know all relevant components affecting photosynthesis, and to be able to actively modulate them in a controlled and predictable manner.
