About Prof. Ueli Grossniklaus

His research centers on the genetic and epigenetic control of plant reproduction. Seminal work from his group in apomixis has shown that natural cloning via seeds might enable the efficiency of such plants to be passed on unchanged. This reproduction method would increase the affordability of hardy and productive hybrid strains. His connection to India dates back to 1993-94 when he was a research associate in theoretical and computational biology at Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore.
