Group

Gerbera Laboratory is located at the Department of Agricultural Sciences, University of Helsinki, Finland (Address: Latokartononkaari 7, P.O.Box 27, 00014 University of Helsinki, Finland). We are part of the Viikki Plant Science Centre. Our research focuses on exploring the gene regulatory networks connected with inflorescence development and patterning as well as secondary metabolism. As our major tools we apply transgenic lines to discover gene functions. We have also produced an extensive RNASeq data covering both vegetative and generative tissues.

The group is jointly led by Prof. Teemu Teeri and Prof. Paula Elomaa. Contact: paula.elomaa (at) helsinki.fi, teemu.teeri (at) helsinki.fi
