Research subject

The aim of our study is to understand the life through genetics and molecular biology. We analyze plants that elaborate variety of strategies to survive under various environmental stress. We focus on the functions of non-coding RNAs and epigenetic modifications.

We always welcome students with high motivation.

Key words: plants, epigenetics, non-coding RNA, transposon, environmental stress
