Scientists at the Max-Planck Institute for Plant Breeding Research in Cologne hybridized closely-related annual and perennial species of the Arabis genus and identified a gene encoding a MADS-box transcription factor that delays flowering.
Collaborative research led by the group of Thorsten Nürnberger (University Tübingen) and Jane Parker (MPIPZ Cologne) with colleagues at ZMBP and MPIPZ has identified a convergence point for defence signalling
A consortium of German and U.S. researchers involving the Max Planck Institute for Plant Breeding Research in Cologne (MPIPZ) and the Heinrich Heine University Düsseldorf (HHU) developed a method in order to determine all regions of the active genome in a single analysis.
An international team of researchers from the Max Planck Institute for Plant Breeding Research and the University of Åarhus in Denmark have discovered that bacteria from the plant microbiota are adapted to their host species.
Together with our University partners in Cologne and Düsseldorf we train about 90 mostly international doctoral students and are inviting talented young researchers to apply for individual open positions and to our structured IMPRS programme.
