Welcome to the Höcker lab!

We are studying molecular responses of plants to the light environment, in particular the role of protein degradation in light-controlled plant development.  To unravel this process, we are using the species Arabidopsis thaliana, Arabis alpina and Physcomitrella patens, employing a combination of genetic, molecular and biochemical tools.   

Research aspects are part of the "Cluster of Excellence on Plant Sciences (CEPLAS)" , the International Max-Planck-Research School (IMPRS) and the Graduate School for Biological Sciences (GSfBS) .
