How do plants monitor their phosphate reserves?

We are happy to announce that the work of PhenoRob PI Gabriel Schaaf and PhD candidate Esther Riemer was published in Molecular Plant (IF 2020: 12.0). This groundbreaking study of PhenoRob’s researchers together with colleagues of the Leibniz Institute of Plant Genetics and Crop Plant Research (IPK) in Gatersleben identifies previously unknown mechanisms of plants used to monitor their phosphate reserves, which plays an essential role for all living organisms.
