Meiosis and meiotic recombination in plants

My group studies the molecular mechanisms of meiosis, including meiotic recombination, cell cycle control and chromosome distribution. We use plant models and combine molecular genetics, genomics, genetic screens and microscopy to understand how meiosis works, how it evolves and how it influences adaptation.

Keywords: Meiosis / recombination / chromosomes / reproduction / apomixis / plant breeding

Subject area(s): Cell Cycle | Genome Stability & Dynamics | Plant Biology
