Plant phenomics of assimilate partitioning: importance for development, stress responses & biotechnology

Within a holistic phenomics approach biochemistry, instrumental analytics, genetics, enzymology, and non-invasive phenotyping techniques are combined to study the role of carbohydrate partitioning and source – sink relations for growth and development, beneficial and pathogenic biotic interactions and abiotic stress responses. The basic mechanisms studied with functional approaches in model plants are translated for practical applications to crops to increase stress reliance within climate change scenarios.
