In the Department of Molecular and Cellular Biology (Adam Mickiewicz University) we are investigating plant response to different abiotic stimulation. We focus on plant tropisms and the influence of localized stimulation on plant development and growth. Diversified light wavelength, vibration, phytohormones are tested in order to explore possibilities of regulation of plant growth and shape in flora robotica bio-hybrids. Plant response is analysed with molecular biology and biochemical tools like confocal microscopy, GUS staining, protein and nucleic acids analysis.
Our group also provides the flora robotica consortium space and controllable conditions for plant cultivation.
