The characteristics of a plant are referred to as its phenotype and are primarily governed by the DNA of an individual (its genotype), the individual’s environment and the interactions between these two. Plant phenotypes are affected by both genetic and epigenetic variation. Epigenetics refers to chemical modifications of DNA and can influence gene activity in a way that can be passed on through cell divisions and into following generations. Kathrin Lauss studies the complex relationship between epigenome and phenotype, focusing on DNA methylation, an epigenetic modification that occurs on cystosine bases, one of the four components of DNA.
