MIFE applications:

             plant physiology (stress; adaptation; mineral nutrition; photosynthesis; long-distance transport; growth & development; water relations; osmoregulation; hormonal physiology; stomatal physiology; plant movements)

             cell biology (signaling; perception; elicitors)

             ecophysiology (plant responses to abiotic and biotic factors)

             biophysics (properties of ion channels and transporters)

             developmental biology (morpho- and embriogenesis; polarity)

             functional genomics (in planta studies of specific gene functions; heterologous expression systems)

             agronomy and plant breeding (plant screening for environmental fitness)

             soil science (soil-root interface; heavy metal toxicity; remediation)

             marine biology (algae; phytoplankton; marine biofilms and mats; sediments)

             bryology (physiology and development)

             mycology (factors controlling growth and development)

             food microbiology (effect of food-related treatments on bacteria; food preservation studies; interrelation of pathogenic and probiotic bacteria; biofilms)

             medical microbiology (pathogenic bacteria; bacterial physiology an genetics; host-pathogen interactions)

             environmental microbiology (functional genomics; bioremediation; environmental physiology)

             medical reserach (screening of new drugs; physiology; pathology)

             human and animal physiology (receptors; signaling; homeostasis)

             toxicology (receptors; selectivity and action spectrum; molecular targets)
