Emilie Knight

Research Assistant Genes in the Environment

Emilie’s group studies the adaptation of meiosis to evolutionary challenges such as genome duplication.

They work on Arabidopsis arenosa, which can be found naturally both as a diploid and a tetraploid and therefore constitutes a good plant model for the study of meiosis genes and their adaptation to polyploidisation.

Emilie’s project focuses on studying SYN1 (Arabidopsis homolog of the kleisin subunit of meiotic cohesion, REC8) on a molecular and cytological level.

She also ensures the smooth running of the lab and is involved in various other projects within the group.
