Luuk Rutten

Postdoctoral researcher

Wageningen University

As an molecular biologist I am mostly inspired by the evolutionary history of land plants. I started out in 2014 doing a Phd thesis on the evolutionary history of Parasponia LysM receptor complexes. Currently I continued my research in Renes group working on Trema engineering. I specialize in molecular cloning, plant mutagenesis and transformation and a bit of phylogenetics.
