Food and nutritional security

As part of the TIME SCALE project, the Laboratory of Functional Plant Biology at Ghent University ​conducts research towards food and nutritional security. Research is conducted towards a triple goal:

  • Understanding plant growth in both normal and adverse conditions
  • Developing tools for plant health monitoring allowing fine-tuning of stress control
  • Biofortification of staple crops to eradicate micronutrient deficiencies.
