Alex is an IMPRS PhD student in our group since 2014. His research addresses the gene family expansion of Polycomb Group proteins during plant evolution. He is especially interested in plant Histone Methyltransferases and to characterize their functional diversification accompanying gene duplication events
Kristin is an IMPRS PhD student who joined our group in October 2015. She is interested in cis-regulatory elements and their role in Polycomb Group target gene regulation in higher plants.
Petra Tänzler joined the group in 2010. She is a molecular biology wizzard from which all projects profit enormously.
Emmanuel is an IMPRS PhD student in our group since 2013. His PhD students is focused on the cis regulatory code of FLOWERING LOCUS T. He is particularly interested how this code changes in natural populations to adapt flowering to different environmental conditions.
Tingting Yang is a new PhD student supported by CSC. She joined our group in October 2015. Her PhD project focuses on the identification of trans-factors regulating FT.
Yue Zhou characterizes genetic enhancers of the lhp1 mutation. The enhancers were isolated in an EMS-mutagenesis screen
