We are currently studying different aspects of the lipid metabolism of plants, algae, mosses and fungi. In this context we are primarily interested in the metabolism of waxes, storage lipids, polyenoic fatty acids and lipid-derived signal transduction processes. For this purpose, we make use of both classical techniques as analytical chemistry and biochemistry as well as of modern approaches in the area of molecular genetics, including the generation of transgenic organisms („gain-of-function“) or mutants („loss-of-function“) of plants, mosses, fungi or bacteria.In addition the group is concerned with the analysis of the new rape pathogen Verticillium longisporum.
