Mediated by proteins the genomic DNA is organised into a dynamic nucleoprotein structure termed chromatin. Analysing the Arabidopsis thaliana model system, our research addresses the regulation of transcript elongation by RNA polymerase II in the chromatin context. Particularly, factors that assist the elongation process are in the focus of our research. In addition, we examine co-transcriptional events that determine the fate of the freshly synthesised mRNAs, including mRNA export from the nucleus to the cytosol. We study how these processes collaborate to control gene expression and plant development (e.g. flowering, seed production) as well as responses to external stimuli (e.g. stress conditions).

The Department of Cell Biology and Plant Biochemistry is integrated in the Biochemie-Zentrum Regensburg (BZR). In addition, our Research Group is part of the collaborative research center SFB960. Over the years, our research was thankfully funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG) and other organisations indicated below.
