The Cluster of Excellence on Plant Sciences is a joint
unit of Heinrich Heine University Düsseldorf, University
of Cologne, Max Planck Institute for Plant Breeding
Research Cologne and Forschungszentrum Jülich.
CEPLAS is developing innovative science-based
strategies for sustainable plant production. Our aim is
to mechanistically understand complex plant traits of
agronomic relevance that impact on yield and
adaptation to limited resources.
What we offer
CEPLAS creates an international, interdisciplinary
research environment. We offer a comprehensive
