The focus of the Plant Pathology professorship is on cell biological, genetic and molecular research into the biogenic causes that lead to disease in plants. Based on this understanding of the causes of disease, strategies are developed to protect crops from disease. The main focus is on phytopathogenic fungi and oomycetes in their interaction with their respective host plants. Furthermore, scientific plant models such as Arabidopsis thaliana and Nicotiana benthamiana are used in the research, which serve to expand basic knowledge about the plant immune system and are easily accessible experimentally and genetically.
