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.

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.

The Pecinka lab is hosted by 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 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. read more...
