  • About PSB
    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 The use of fossil resources like coal and petrol results in a net increase of atmospheric CO 2 which reinforces climate change Plants have the unique ability to capture CO 2 from the atmosphere and convert it into biomass This makes sustainably grown and processed plants a renewable and environmental friendly resource for biofuels and biochemicals Plants with a novel composition that better suits industrial processing are a highly valuable asset for tomorrow s bio based society Climate Adapted Crops Climate change is one of the most serious threats humanity has ever faced Developing crops more tolerant to rapidly changing and more severe environments e g water shortage and elevated temperatures will be crucial for tomorrow s food production Green biotechnology together with other innovative strategies to adapt current agricultural approaches offers a solution to maintain high food productivity while preserving earth s valuable ecosystems Plant Diversity Nature has provided us with a wealth of plant species that have evolved to cope with harsh environments Genetic variation as a driver for this diversity can lead us to solutions for plant production in a changing environment With the genomics revolution we now have the tools at hand to fully grasp this potential The opportunity to mine breeding stocks and seed banks also brings the obligation to help protect it Innovative Crop Care Crops are under continuous threats which hypothecate food production Innovative solutions that optimize crop productivity and quality with a minimal impact on the environment are needed This involves a plethora of strategies including the study of the rhizosphere the use of beneficial microorganisms crop imaging for precision agriculture diagnosis tools for crop traits and

    to maximize crop yield both quantitatively and qualitatively Modern agriculture will make use of precision measurement of the soil to which subsequently the right amount of fertilizers and possibly biologicals are added Then climate adapted varieties will be grown in these soils and protected from abiotic and biotic stresses by continuously monitoring their physiological status with biomarkers and probes When required crops can then be treated with innovative agrochemicals and or biologicals that protect them from damage and promote further yield We are convinced that PSB can play a substantial role in generating novel knowledge that will further drive innovations for the Integrated Yield Management concept Although PSB has already contacts with many companies both nationally and internationally we will proactively search for industrial partners with whom we can co develop some of the concepts outlined above Collaborative Research In collaborative research activities we can offer our world class expertise in different fields of plant biotechnology and a critical mass of competent scientists in root development and architecture organ size and yield secondary metabolism and health wood formation and second generation bio fuels oxidative stress and plant resilience to name a few We can also bring in our advanced technology platforms and direct access to service facilities within VIB These include plant phenotyping through imaging robots different molecular profiling techniques applied bioinformatics and biostatistics protein complex discovery through AP MS the Compound Screening Facility and many more We seek for the best solutions to generate added values and competitive advantages for the companies we collaborate with Licensing opportunities VIB follows an active patenting strategy of technologies with potential commercial value The Department of Plant Systems Biology currently retains a large patent portfolio and files new patent applications every year The majority of our patent applications are either licensed to different

  • Education
    to date education in Plant Developmental Biology Biotechnology and Genetics is therefore an important goal of the department of Plant Systems Biology The PSB department belongs to that of Plant Biotechnology and Bioinformatics from Ghent University that is headed by Prof Ann Depicker The department lends teachers for various courses in the Bachelor and Master Programs that are offered by the Faculty of Sciences The global demand for plant derived products such as feed and food is increasing dramatically which could be solved by the modern plant biotechnology Recently a new subsequent Master program has been created at Ghent University the Master of Science in Plant Biotechnology covering all aspects of modern Plant Biotechnology related to state of the art technologies plant growth and development abiotic stress and biotic interactions IP and safety regulation Finally the PSB department is closely linked to the Institute of Plant Biotechnology Outreach IPBO whose mission is to assist developing countries to gain access to the latest biotechnological developments IPBO offers summer courses on Biosafety Assessment and Regulation of Agricultural Biotechnology and recently implemented a Postgraduate Studies in Biosafety in Plant Biotechnology at Ghent University in co operation with the United Nations Industrial and Developmental
