Weigel leads citation ranking in plant and developmental biology

The trade magazine Laborjournal regularly publishes rankings comparing the citation records of scientists from the German speaking countries (Austria, Germany, Switzerland).

Across publications that appeared from 2003 to 2006, Detlef Weigel ranked first, by a considerable margin, among both plant biologists (as of 5/2009) and developmental biologists (as of 10/09).

In addition to Weigel, 7 current or former members of the department are among the 50 most highly cited developmental biologists!
