Dear colleagues,

the following information might be of interest to the plant research 
community. We have set up a facility for the large-scale generation 
of targeted knockouts in the moss Physcomitrella patens, an 
increasingly popular model organism for plant functional genomics 
studies. We can target single genes of known sequence, but our main 
focus - due to our high-throughput transformation capacity - is on 
the establishment of tailor-made mutant populations.

An overview about our current capabilities can be found at our web-site:  (move the mouse over the image 
to discover all possibilities!)

If you have further questions, or are interested in possible 
collaborations, please don't hesitate to contact us -  contact 
information is supplied on the web page.

Regards, Jan Lucht
