Plants are fascinating. They form complex and plastic networks (both above- and below- ground), ever integrating and adapting to endogenous and exogenous clues. Manipulation of these networks brings the promise to unlock plant productivity in limiting environments. The lab primary research interests lie in the understanding of these interconnected, multi-scale regulations pathways in crop plants.

The incredible complexity of plants calls for integrative research strategies such as developing powerful computational tools (modelling, image analysis, data visualisation). Our belief is that combining these tools with the latest biological knowledge will open exciting horizons for plant research.

Since 2016, our lab is coordinated by Guillaume Lobet, between the Forschungszentrum Juelich and the Université catholique de Louvain.
