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

2.
Transcription regulation - during male gametophyte development

3.
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
