We study the regulatory mechanisms that control the onset of reproduction in plants, how these are regulated by environmental cues and how they are modified with life history during plant evolution.

Reproductive development and the evolution of perennial life history (George Coupland)

We study the regulatory mechanisms that control the onset of reproduction in plants, how these are regulated by environmental cues and how they are modified with life history during plant evolution. [more]
Our research focuses on understanding the regulatory roles of three functionally interlinked RNAPII transcription regulatory modules that carry subunit homologs of TFIIH general transcription factor, SAGA transcriptional co-activator and spliceosome-activating NTC complexes in Arabidopsis.

Transcriptional control of stress responses (Csaba Koncz)

Our research focuses on understanding the regulatory roles of three functionally interlinked RNAPII transcription regulatory modules that carry subunit homologs of TFIIH general transcription factor, SAGA transcriptional co-activator and spliceosome-activating NTC complexes in Arabidopsis. [more]
Our main focus of our computational research group is combining algorithm development and integration of novel high-throughput technologies, with its actual application in plant biology. For this we explore the latest technologies in genomics, including long-read sequencing and genome mapping methods, develop methods and apply them to the current questions in plant genomics. Our main working models are Brassicaceae species - a plant family with a large variety of crop species and model organisms.

Genome Plasticity and Computational Genetics (Korbinian Schneeberger)

For this we explore the latest technologies in genomics, including long-read sequencing and genome mapping methods, develop methods and apply them to the current questions in plant genomics. Our main working models are Brassicaceae species - a plant family with a large variety of crop species and model organisms. [more]
Our group is interested in the regulatory mechanisms that control genes important in plant development. We are particularly interested in the development of new tools that are required to decipher the interconnections of transcriptional networks and chromatin in transcriptional control.

Transcription Control in Flowering Time (Franziska Turck)

Our group is interested in the regulatory mechanisms that control genes important in plant development. We are particularly interested in the development of new tools that are required to decipher the interconnections of transcriptional networks and chromatin in transcriptional control. [more]
