hormones plant-stress UV-B arabidopsis
Project description

Plants which are radiated with an ecological relevant dose of UV-B show alterations in auxin, brassinosteroid and gibberellin related genes. In this project, we will try to unravel the exact influence of an enhanced amount of UV-B on hormonal interactions in the hypocotyl. Moreover, the interactions in floral-inductions will be investigated in more detail.
