Abstract:
In the next decades, the world market for plant-derived products is expected to grow exponentially. Not only do we rely on plants to feed the growing world population, but plants will also play a pivotal role in providing a significant portion of our energy needs, and in fulfilling our demand for renewable industrial resources. It is expected that (bio-)technological advances will further boost crop productivity and quality in a wider range of applications. In addition, new technologies will make it possible to develop agricultural practices in better harmony with the natural environment. The mission of PSB is to significantly contribute to solving the above-described grand challenges by laying the scientific foundation for innovations and by enabling that such innovations find their way to society at large. We framed our research in the following five thematic areas providing important challenges and opportunities for plant research:

- Sustainable bio-energy and bio-based products
- Climate resilient crops
- Plant diversity
- Innovative crop care
- Plants and human health

The marine research is mainly conducted in the Bioinformatics and Systems Biology group which focuses on functional, structural and comparative genomics. The marine topics concern the genetic study of algae (e.g. diatoms) for which collaboration is established with the laboratory of Protistology and Aquatic Ecology (UGent). Furthermore, the research also targets species which are important for aquaculture such as Artemia, in close collaboration with the laboratory of Aquaculture and Artemia Reference Center (Ugent).
