Hřibová Group

Our group focuses on the structure, organization and evolution of plant genomes. We are using NGS, molecular and cytogenetic approaches and bioinformatic tools to expand the knowledge on genome organization and karyotype evolution in Musaceae. Recently, we are also interested in DNA replication in time and space in Hordeum vulgare and Brachypodium distachyon, related species varying in genome sizes, and analysis of genome organization using super resolution microscopy.
  • We provide analysis of Musa genetic diversity using SSR genotyping platform.

      Musa Genotyping Centre

  • We are interested in identification and characterization of DNA repetitive elements.             

      Databases of DNA repeats


  • Formation of sex chromosomes in Silene latifolia and S. dioica was accompanied by multiple chomosomal rearrangements. See more in our recent paper (Bačovský et al. 2020).
  • Molecular karyotyping and identification of translocations in banana (Musa spp.) done by oligo painting FISH. See more in Denisa's recent paper (Šimoníková et al. 2019).


  • Effects of non-denaturing RGEN-ISL and standard denaturing FISH on chromatin structure in interphase nuclei of maize analyzed by super-resolution (SIM) microscopy. See more in Alžběta's recent paper (Němečková et al. 2019).
