Summary of project:

The plant hormones (PHs) are signal molecules produced within plants that occur at extremely low concentration. PHs influence the plant growth, seed germination, fruit maturation and fruit ripening, they have significant roles in the production of food crops. They are responsible for controlling the physiological processes including the embryogenesis, regulation of the organ size, pathogen defence, and reproductive developments. The project PlantIMS is focused on application of Ion Mobility Spectrometry for fast and sensitive detection of plant hormones and to develop sampling methods and methodology for online measurement of plant hormones released from plants.
