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.

Our goal is to understand molecular and evolutionary mechanisms shaping plant genomes and epigenomes. We analyze how DNA sequence and chromatin changes are generated by endo- and exogenous factors and how these forces are balanced by the genome repair and epigenetic mechanisms. For our research we use ''Arabidopsis thaliana'', several other ''Brassicaceae'', selected crops and analyze them by forward and reverse genetics, molecular, biochemical, cytogenetic and bioinformatic methods.
