plants (see e.g. Plant J. 5: 799-813)
b)The functions of the light-dependent NADPH-protochlorophyllide
oxidoreductases A and B of higher plants (see e.g. Proc. Natl. Acad. Sci.
92: 3254-3258; Plant Cell 8: 763-769)
c)The role of thionins as part of a defense mechanism of higher plants
against pathogens (see e.g. Plant Physiol. 109, 813-820)
Candidates should have received a solid practical training in
Microbiology, Molecular Biology and/or Biochemistry. Candidates will
initially rotate and will work within three different research groups for
