      Institute for Biochemical Plant Pathology (BIOP)
       

      The Institute of Biochemical Plant Pathology (BIOP) investigates the defence mechanisms, growth and fitness of plants as a function of environmental influences with a focus on the molecular reaction mechanisms to biotic and abiotic factors. The goals are new methods for sustainable agriculture and biotechnological use of plants as well as securing the role of plants in human nutrition and health. BIOP is part of the Department of Environmental Sciences (DES). BIOP includes the Department of Experimental Environmental Simulation (EUS).
