The goal of the Pecinka lab is to understand molecular mechanisms shaping plant genomes. To this end we use the model plant ''Arabidopsis thaliana'' and several other ''Brassicaceae'' and analyze them by using forward and reverse genetics, molecular, biochemical, cytogenetic and bioinformatic methods.

Our goal is to understand molecular and evolutionary mechanisms shaping plant genomes and epigenomes. We analyze how DNA sequence and chromatin changes are generated by endo- and exogenous factors and how these forces are balanced by the genome repair and epigenetic mechanisms. To this end we use mainly the model plant ''Arabidopsis thaliana'' and several other ''Brassicaceae'' and analyze them by forward and reverse genetics, molecular, biochemical, cytogenetic and bioinformatic methods.

The Pecinka lab is hosted by the Department of Plant Breeding and Genetics at the Max Planck Institute for Plant Breeding Research in Cologne, Germany.


Our goal is to understand molecular and evolutionary mechanisms shaping plant genomes and epigenomes. We analyze how DNA sequence and chromatin changes are generated by endo- and exogenous factors and how these forces are balanced by the genome repair and epigenetic mechanisms. To this end we use mainly the model plant Arabidopsis thaliana and several other Brassicaceae and analyze them by forward and reverse genetics, molecular, biochemical, cytogenetic and bioinformatic methods. read more...
