Research

In the Hasenkampf laboratory work is focused on in the structure and function of eukaryotic chromosomes. We are particularly interested in how the specialized chromosome structures found during meiosis allow homologous chromosomes to come together, recognize each other and undergo reciprocal genetic exchange. We use DNA and protein purification techniques combined with immuno-cytochemistry, light and electron microscopy and mutant analysis to study meiosis in Arabidopsis thaliana. Dr. Hasenkampf is also interested in student engagement in their education as scientists.
