  • Research is focused on the mechanisms that regulate growth in Arabidopsis thaliana, with emphasis on the development of the root, root hairs, hypocotyl and leaves, based on transcriptome analysis and using phenotyping, genotyping, molecular biological approaches and visualization by different means of microscopy. Perturbation of normal growth conditions are used to study 1) normal development and 2) the mechanisms that evoke the typical growth response in the plants.


You can find here all of the projects that are recorded in the research database of UAntwerp under the name of the academic staff member that acts as a promoter, copromoter or grant holder (a.o. FWO). It concerns only those research projects and mandates that were acquired after an external or internal competition.
