Dissemination of research results

The Department of Molecular Biology and Genetics publishes regularly articles to various media (newspapers, TV, online media) with results from the department in connection with the publication of some of the staff's scientific articles.

In connection with their PhD defence, the students make a popular description of their research for the media.

In addition, several researchers actively participate in debates in the media and produce science articles and books.

A mutation giving leaves with white spots has been identified

Garden and potted plants with white spots on their leaves are so popular that they are specially selected for this feature. An international research team has now identified a new mutation in the plant Lotus japonicus which gives leaves with white spots. These results could be important for the improvement of garden and potted plants.
