Stress reactions of plant cells to biotic and abiotic stress

Here, we investigate the reactions of living cells to mechanical injury, to various biotic and abiotic chemicals, to heavy metals and to osmotic stress. The results shall improve our understanding of cell signalling, cell-to-cell communication and stress defense on the cellular level.
