Andreas Graner is a biochemist and plant geneticist. He researches the genome of cultivated plants. With his team he has developed the first gene map of barley. He has characterized resistance genes and thus provided important basic information for breeding disease-resistant barley varieties.
As plant biodiversity is increasingly endangered, genebanks prevent genetic resources from getting extinct and warrant unrestricted access for their utilization. For the informed use of these resources, we need to understand their ways of operation at the organismic, cellular and molecular level. Therefore, genetic and genomic approaches are being used to develop knowledge based strategies for an improved conservation and utilization of plant genetic resources. Genome analysis is performed at the structural and functional level to understand genome evolution and to identify genes that underlie agronomic traits such as seed quality and disease resistance.
