Pollen World
Pollen Biology Lab, Czech Academy of Sciences

Laboratory of Pollen Biology

of the Institute of Experimental Botany ASCR

studies various aspects of
plant reproductive development, namely the regulatory mechanisms active in the control of gene expression at different levels:

Prasnik a cnelka1

1. Genome organisation and stability

Transcription regulation - during male gametophyte development

Translation regulation and mRNA storage - in pollen and pollen tubes

Experimental model plants for our research are

Arabidopsis thaliana
Nicotiana tabacum
Physcomitrella patens

According to the principal topics, we are divided into three research groups:

DNA repair Group
Pollen Transcription Group
Pollen Translation Group
