Research

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 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...
