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.

Our goal is to understand molecular and evolutionary mechanisms shaping plant genomes and epigenomes. We analyze how DNA sequence variation is generated by various mutagenic factors and how these forces are counteracted by the genome repair and maintenance mechanisms. To this end we use the model plant ''Arabidopsis thaliana'' and several other ''Brassicaceae'' and analyze them by forward and reverse genetics, molecular, biochemical, cytogenetic and bioinformatic methods.

We analyze how DNA sequence variation is generated by various mutagenic factors and how these forces are counteracted by the genome repair and maintenance mechanisms. To this end we use 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...
