Scientists at the GMI use a variety of plant and algae models for their research. These models represent an invaluable tool for studying complex molecular mechanisms. Each model presents unique characteristics that make it suitable for specific types of research. Some research groups at the GMI also use several models for comparative studies that highlight important evolutionary differences between organisms, paving the way to understand the molecular underpinnings of evolution.

Here you can find more information about the plant models used by researchers at the GMI, as well as the topics they investigate.
