Genome editing at Radix

In our Laboratory of Cell Biology we culture the moss Physcomitrella patens to study conserved cell-biologic mechanisms in plants. Homologous recombination allows us to edit the genome of this organism in a very precise manner.

During this fascinating visit, you will see how the organism can be cultured on a small scale in the lab, and how processes like division and pathogenic defence can be followed in detail using live cell imaging.
