- The conference of the Society for Genetics in Kiel was a great success. Thanks to everyone involved.
- Five of us attended the Fungal Genetics Conference in Pacific Grove.
- Ms. Kollath-Leiß has successfully completed her doctorate!
- We take off ... A photo shoot with the whole lab for the lab journal.

- On October 1st, 2011, the Department of Botanical Genetics and Molecular Biology will be 10 years old. In the ten years, 43 publications, 3 books, 2 new editions of the genetic engineering book (the fourth is in print) and around 100 conference contributions have been created. There are also 5 bachelor theses, 16 diploma, master and state examination theses and 6 doctoral theses. Another 8 doctoral theses are currently ongoing. I would like to thank all former and current employees for the very good cooperation over the past 10 years.
