Section for Molecular Plant Biology offers you the opportunity do experimental work for your MSc-thesis within a wide range of research areas and using many different modern techniques used in biochemistry, molecular biology, bioinformatics and basic plant science. We can also offer a wide selection of bachelor projects which are directly linked to the ongoing research in our laboratory.
As a MSc-student you will be integrated as a group member in one of our research projects, and you will work closely together with the other team members and many more colleagues at the laboratory, in a very active and international level research environment. This ensures you an optimal support and supervision – and a project with high quality and relevance.
Our research includes a wide range of topics and technologies to analyze genes and gene expression, metabolite profiles, protein, transgenic microorganisms and plants – and much more.
Our research fields, which are listed below, all cover challenging aspects of biological science, and each field offers several different student projects. Only selected examples of MSc projects are mentioned. It is also possible to do bachelor projects within all research areas at Molecular Plant Biology. You are always welcome to come and have a talk with us about the possibilities.
