Rudolf Hagemann is distinguished for many important contributions to General Genetics and Plant Genetics. He did research work for ten years in the Institute for Research in Cultivated Plants Gatersleben of the German Academy of Sciences in Berlin, headed by Hans Stubbe. In 1967 he was appointed Professor of Genetics and head of the Institute of Genetics of the University of Halle, Faculty of Sciences. He built up this institute and led it for 25 years. It won a good reputation nationally and internationally.
His main fields of research have been (1) genetic instability (paramutation) and (2) chloroplast genetics (= plastid genetics). Together with an increasing number of coworkers he investigated the experimental induction of plastid mutations, the molecular and electron microscopic analysis of plastid mutants and the modes of their transmission, the expression of plastid genes and their cooperation with nuclear genes. Moreover, problems of evolution have been studied. In the 1990-years the history of genetics became the main field of Hagemann’s research work.
So far he published 210 papers, review articles and books, among them several monographs and a textbook of “General Genetics” in four editions.
