Work in the lab of Jan Lohmann is focused on the regulatory programs governing shoot meristem function and the control of stem cell number in the reference plant Arabidopsis thaliana. To this end we employ an integrated approach of advanced genetic, genomic, and molecular methods together with computational analysis to determine how hard-wired genetic circuits underlying stem cell control are orchestrated and integrated with environmental signals. Jan Lohmann is a member of the CellNetworks Cluster of Excellence, the collaborative research centre SFB873 on stem cells and the HBIGS graduate school. Our work is supported by funds from a variety of public sources, including the DFG and the ERC. More information about our research can be found on: www. meristemania.org
