Chemical Signalling Lab (Andreas Meyer)

The Chemical Signalling Lab investigates the physiological role of redox processes in plants. Our goal is to understand the dynamics of glutathione transport and the function of thiol-based redox-switches in regulating plant stress reactions and to identify switch elements that control plant performance.
