Thomas 2017a Klein Sw
Reproduction, Fertility and Development
With a focus on the regulation of cell polarity, identity and signaling we are studying plant germline development and function, fertilization mechanisms and early seed development. 
Prof. Dr. Klaus Grasser
Chromatin, gene expression
and development
We study how transcript elongation and co-transcriptional processes in the chromatin context modulate plant developmental responses.
PD Dr. Stefanie Sprunck
Flowering plant gamete formation, male-female gamete interactions and the establishment of polarity
Using isolated gametes of wheat, maize and Arabidopsis we investigate how male and female gametes interact with each other during double fertilization. The molecular mechanisms of tip-growth are studied in pollen tubes and root hairs.
PD Dr. Ulrich Hammes
Long- and short distance transport, physiology and development
We investigate how assimilates and hormones are transported across membranes and distributed in the plant to ensure proper development.
Mariana Mondragón-Palomino, Ph.D. Mondragon B W 90x90
Gene family evolution in plant speciation and development

We use experimental and bioinformatic approaches to investigate how gene and genomic duplication drive the morphological and functional diversification of plants.
