Project manager: Prof. Dr. Caroline Gutjahr

Problem: This project will contribute to providing an answer to the superior question of how the genetic variability of crop plants can be used to gain an optimal stress resistance and increased efficiency through symbiosis with soil fungi. This superior question is going to be addressed by 3 subsidiary questions: A) Does symbiosis induce stress resistance and the absorption of phosphate for various different European maize species? B) Which maize inbreed lines show optimal responses? C) Which regions in the genome cause quantitative differences in the stress response and therefore could be used to breed optimized varieties?
