The Max Planck Institute of Molecular Plant Physiology, founded in 1994, studies the dynamics of plant metabolism in the context of the plant system as a whole.
Since the system is more than a collection of genes and gene products, we focus our efforts on how these components dynamically interact over time and under different conditions.
By combining traditional biological approaches with techniques relevant to functional genomics, we are forming a holistic view of structure, function, dynamics and regulation of entire plant genomes, proteomes and metabolomes.
