Welcome to the Chair of Plant Systems Biology

Welcome to the website of the Chair of Plant Systems Biology at the Center of Life and Food Sciences Weihenstephan of the Technische Universität München.

By combining molecular, genetic, and cell biological approaches with functional genomics and proteomics, we are examining the role of the ubiquitin system in plant growth and development using the plant model species Arabidopsis thaliana as well as signal transduction mechanism governd by the plant hormones gibberellin and auxin.

Claus Schwechheimer is speaker of the DFG-funded research network Sonderforschungsbereich 924 (SFB924) “Molecular Mechanisms of Regulation Yield and Yield Stability in Plants”.

Claus Schwechheimer is also part of the Management committee of the EU COST Action PROTEOSTASIS.

Erika Isono was Independent Research Group leader at the Chair. She has worked on the role of the ubiquitin system in intracellular trafficking processes.

Pascal Falter-Braun was Independent Research Group leader at the Chair. He studied plant protein-protein interaction networks using a yeast-two-hybrid system-based interaction platform.

More information on our work and the team can be found on the following pages.

We have positions available for those who are interested in conducting a practical training, in performing a Bachelor, Master, Ph.D. thesis or in performing postdoctoral research. Please contact:
