Please find his classical and pioneering work on root ecology and root function (

Field trial in Madagascar

With an joint effort, we harvested over 1500 rhizosphere samples within two days! We are now curious about what microbes do such soil contain and what functions do they play in poor soil.

Frank Hochholdinger is the new head of the study group maize of the GPZ

Prof. Zhongtao Jia | Talk

Prof. Zhongtao Jia from China Agricultural University (CAU) on "Hormonal regulation of root nitrogen foraging responses in plants". Prof. Jia did his postdoc with Prof. Nicolaus von Wirén in Leibniz-Institute of Plant Genetics and Crop Plant Research (IPK Gatersleben, Germany). He is mainly interested on molecular mechanisms underlying nitrogen signaling on root development. His research topics include the identification of molecular regulators and genetic allelic variants determining nutrient use efficiency in the aspect of root development and nutrient acquisition.
