Mission: Research at the Leibniz Institute of Plant Biochemistry (IPB) focuses on the chemical diversity, the biosynthesis, the biological roles, and the mechanisms of action of plant and fungal natural products, with an emphasis on specialized metabolites and signaling molecules. Our aim is to develop a comprehensive molecular understanding of the adaptive and developmental processes which plants evolved as a consequence of their dynamic interaction with the environment. The resulting changes in gene expression and phenotype are analyzed in interdisciplinary approaches at the genome, proteome, and foremost at the metabolome level. The knowledge gained paves the way to a plant-based bioeconomy: it facilitates sustainable crop production, innovative biotechnology and drug development to improve the nutrition and health of humans, animals and plants.
The following data gives a quick reading on the scientific performance in the last years. The research ranking refers to the volume, impact and quality of the institution's research output. The innovation ranking is calculated on the number of patent applications of the institution and the citations that its research output receives from patents. Finally, the societal ranking is based on the number of pages of the institution's website and the number of backlinks and mentions from social networks.
Compared to its context
The result of the evaluation of the institution can be compared to obtain a view of the country, the region to which it belongs and the institutions of the world, placing it in their respective positions.
Compared to All sectors (percentiles)
Compared to Government sector (percentiles)
These are the journals used by the institution's researchers to publish their work in the last year. The size of each circle represents the value of the SJR of the publication, and its spatial position represents its subject matter.
This visualizatión allows you to identify the knowledge areas where the institution has published, recognize the prestige of the scientific journals in which the institution knowledge has been published, and identify predominant scientific communities.
