We are open to collaboration with other groups/laboratories in research areas we are able to cover thematically and/or methodically.

Methodical approaches:
  • Arabidopsis thaliana and tobacco gardening
  • Cytological methods (light and fluorescence microscopy)
  • Molecular methods (PCR, RT-PCR, northern and Southern blotting, molecular cloning, transformation)
  • Subcellular fractionation (ultracentrifugation, chromatography)
  • Transcriptomics (DNA arrays)
  • Proteomics (isolation and quantification of proteins, 1-D and 2-D SDS PAGE, in vitro translation and co-translational N-glycosylation, western blotting)
  • Bioinformatics (normalisation and analysis of DNA chip datasets, regulation of transcription in silico, regulatory motifs in promoters)
