PHASE Lab

Polyploidy and Hybridisation in Agriculture, Speciation and Evolution

 
We are a research group led by Prof. Annaliese Mason, Chair of Plant Breeding at the University of Bonn, Germany since September 2020.
 
Our major research focus is on polyploidy and interspecific hybridisation, or in other words, how two different species can come together to form a new, hybrid species or to swap genetic material. We aim to use these common evolutionary processes for crop improvement, particularly in the Brassica genus, which contains important oilseed (canola, rapeseed) and vegetable (cabbage, turnip, cauliflower and broccoli) crops.
 
We are also interested in polyploidy and hybridization processes in other species (particularly wheat), in the identification and introgression of traits such as abiotic and biotic stress tolerances from wild relatives into crops, and in the improvement of “orphan” or minor crop species.

Our established research techniques include molecular genetics and genomics and molecular and classical cytogenetics as well as classical plant breeding methods; we are currently working also on development of image analysis and high-throughput phenotyping methods.
 
We teach in the degree programs BSc Agricultural Science, MSc Crop Science and MSc Agricultural Science and Resource Management in the Tropics and Subtropics (ARTS).
