The Plant Reproductive Biology research group has a strong focus on the establishment of principles and methods of transgenesis and genome editing as well as on the dissection of live plant cells and their manipu­lation, e.g. for the generation of true-breeding plants originating from haploid cells.

While being involved in fundamental research to some extent using such biotechnologies, our major efforts are devoted to the improvement of crop plant performance. Biological processes of our interest include plant sexual and asexual reproduction, domestication, plant-pathogen interaction and the formation of yield components.

The Plant Reproductive Biology group has established IPK's Genome Editing Platform and is responsible for its further development and operation. Illustrations of principles and methods established and utilized in this context are illustrated here.
