Outline

Mass Spectrometry and Microscopy Unit
Mass spectrometric and microscopic analyses are fundamental analytical technology in plant science and sustainable resource science. Our unit develops and executes the analyses based on mass spectrometry for the study of plant metabolome and hormonome and on microscopy for the ultrastructural observation of the plant cells.

Subjects

  1. Plant metabolomic analyses by mass spectrometry
  2. Plant hormone analyses by mass spectrometry
  3. Microscopic analyses of plant tissues and cells
Mass spectrometers using for metabolomic and hormone analysis
Microscopies using for tissues and cells
