Welcome to the Bayer lab

Introduction

Our group is interested in a mechanistic understanding of multicellular development of flowering plants. Our main focus lies on cell polarity and early events in cell differentiation during embryogenesis and seed development.

We are studying receptor kinase/MAP kinase signaling pathways and transcriptional networks involved in cell polarity and pattern formation.

We are using a multi-disciplinary approach combining genetics and genomics, evolutionary biology, biochemistry, structural biology, as well as advanced microscopy. Our experiments range from the organismal to the atomic level.
