About Us

We study polyploidy, meiosis, DNA repair and gene editing, all processes which generate new DNA sequences or sequence arrangements, providing the raw material for evolution. Our current research has a particular focus on developing technologies to help increase the pace of plant breeding.

An Arabidopsis suecica meiotic cell, imaged using Structured Illumination Microscopy (SIM). Chromosome pairs align with the help of meiotic proteins ASY1 (green) and ZIP1 (magenta). DNA shown in blue.
