The main focus is on targeted genome modification of plants. This includes classical transgenic approaches but also the use of new methods of targeted mutagenesis, better known as CRISPR/Cas technology. The aim will be to establish and develop suitable vector and tissue culture systems for plant species that are in the research focus within CEPLAS, which will enable genetic transformation and thus genome modification.
