Welcome to DynaMo!
DynaMo Center is anchored within plant biology. We unravel universal principles that enable an organism to coordinate biochemical and developmental tasks. We share knowledge, ideas, and infrastructure in order to create optimal opportunities for critical thinking, excellent science and outstanding training of a next generation of young scientists. As model system we use the plant Arabidopsis thaliana and its primary defense compounds, glucosinolates. To further broaden our view, we expand our research to other organisms and pathways in a range of basic and applied projects.
