Biopolymer Analytics for crop improvement
The 13 person strong team of the Biopolymer Analytics group led by Prof apl. Dr. habil Joerg Fettke, is interested in primary metabolism of plants, specially starch metabolism. Starch synthesis and degradation includes several enzymes (>40) and different glycans, sugars, and sugar derivatives. The interplay between all these components as well as the fluxes through the various pathways are of special interest to the group.
