VILLUM Research Center for Plant Plasticity – University of Copenhagen

The aim of the VILLUM Research Center for Plant Plasticity is to investigate how plants respond to challenges in their environment. These challenges include climate change, drought as well as threats from herbivores or infecting microbes. The Center's innovative and multidisciplinary basic research is focusing on achieving an integrated understanding of the links between molecular changes and the changes in the plant as a whole. This approach will ultimately result in better breeding techniques for the crop plants of the future.


The researchers at the VILLUM Research Center for Plant Plasticity are investigating plant plasticity as manifested at multiple levels. Each of these levels are represented by a research subproject. Read more about these projects by clicking here ...>
