Metabolites play a central role not only for plant growth and the response of plants to environmental stresses, but have a particularly important role also for formation of flavour, taste and texture, i.e. features highly relevant for vegetable crops and their performance on the market. The department focuses on unravelling the metabolic profiles and primary/secondary metabolite pathways (and their regulatory control) in harvestable organs (e.g., fruits) of vegetable crops by employing cutting-edge mass spectrometry methods.
