Haploid plants (represented by the pink pots) have only one copy of each chromosome, and are tremendously 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.
