Research Team & Research Topic

Research Team / Research Group Name (if any)
Cytogenetic analysis and genomics
Brief description of the Research Team / Research Group / Department
My laboratory focuses on the biological significance that the different levels of DNA compaction structures and components have on DNA processes in the nucleus, especially, DNA repair and recombination. We are using a multidisciplinary approach combining new high-resolution cytogenetic techniques, mutant characterisation, and systems biology to resolve the complicated interactions of individual chromatin components that result in accurate chromosome behaviour. We are specially interest in DNA repair and meiotic recombination in plants.
Research lines / projects proposed
Chromosome coordination of meiotic homologous recombination in Arabidopsis thaliana
Understanding factors affecting meiotic crossover variation in Arabidopsis thaliana
Control of meiotic recombination during the diploidisation of autopolyploids in Arabidopsis thaliana
Development of cytogenetic tools for advancing breeding
Influence of temperature on meiotic crossover formation in wheat
