Mapping the unknown: What is the function of non-coding RNA in plants?

University of Copenhagen - Faculty of Science

Postdoc Peter Kindgren from Copenhagen Plant Science Centre at University of Copenhagen has received an EU Marie Curie grant to examine whether non-coding RNA play an important role in plants’ ability to cope with temperature changes. However, very little of the DNA in higher organisms are protein coding genes. Plants have a sophisticated defense system Together with his colleagues in the Marquardt lab at Copenhagen Plant Science Centre, Peter Kindgren studies, if non-coding RNA sequences are vital components in the complex regulation system in plants. Non-coding RNA could play an important role in this. ### Copenhagen Plant Science Centre Post doc Peter Kindgren is part of the Marquardt Laboratory at the Copenhagen Plant Science Centre with focus on plant biology and plant biotechnology.
