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.

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

  • Migration of repetitive DNAs during evolution of the permanent translocation heterozygosity in the oyster plant (Tradescantia section Rhoeo). See more in the recent publication (Golczyk et al. 2022).
  • Chromosome evolution and the genetic basis of agronomically important traits in greater yam. See more in the recent publication (Bredeson et al. 2022).
  • Draft sequencing crested wheatgrass chromosomes identified evolutionary structural changes and genes and facilitated the development of SSR markers. See more in our recent publication (Zwyrtková et al. 2022).
