About Biology Centre of the CAS, v.v.i.
The Department of Plant Biophysics and Biochemistry (PBB, headed by Prof. Hendrik Küpper) as part of the Institute of Plant Molecular Biology (IPMB) within the Biology Centre of the Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic (BCAS). The department is interested in the physiology, biophysics and biochemistry (incl. molecular biology) of photosynthetic organisms (terrestrial and submerged higher plants, algae, bacteria). The main focus is on metal metabolism (uptake, physiological use, sequestration, complexation, detoxification, toxicity) and photosynthesis regulation. It employs various biochemical and biophysical methods from the whole organism to the molecular level.
