Module 3 – Multi-Environment climate chamber

The Multi-Environment climate chamber module has been designed to study how plants grow under precisely controlled conditions, and how they adapt to stress. For example, they can use a high-resolution camera to reveal how a pathogen spreads through a plant, or how different types of LED lights affect a plant's immune system. Other research could involve investigating how a plant reacts to changes in light quality, or to floods or drought. This facility can also simulate various climate conditions, for example to study how a plant reacts to frost or to continuous temperatures of above 40°C.

The climate chamber will be housed at Utrecht University.
