"Finest haploids since 2009"
Department of Plant Biology at UC Davis
Welcome to Simon Chan's Lab
We study chromosome inheritance using the small plant Arabidopsis thaliana.
Haploid plants (represented by pink pots) have only one copy of each chromosome, and are very useful in plant breeding. We have produced haploids by manipulating centromeres. Image by Janet Iwasa
Postdoc position available
We are looking for a postdoc to work on genome elimination caused by centromere alterations. Please email Simon if you are interested. Include your CV and a brief description of a project you might pursue in our lab.
