Project 7

SP 7: Climate dependent control of water loss in leaves

Project manager: Prof. Dr. Rainer Hedrich

Problem: This project focuses on the question how barley plants will be able to withstand increasing stress induced by the climate change and how to avoid harvest losses by heat and drought. The primary objectives are to find general mechanisms for optimized stoma regulation of barley plants and to identify related marker genes that will help Bavarian breeders to grow high yielding and stress tolerant barley species.
