The goal of Pecinka lab is to understand molecular basis of mechanisms shaping plant genomes. We focus in particular on DNA repair and inactivation of repetitive DNA that both have potential to cause large genomic chages. To this end we use model species Arabidopsis thaliana and several other Brassicaceae and analyze them using forward and reverse genetics, molecular, biochemical, cytogenetic and bioinformatic methods.

Research

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.

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 wiki site was developed under OpenWetWare, an open access effort to promote sharing of information among biologists.
