Welcome to the Stetter lab in the Botanical Institute at the University of Cologne. We are interested in crop evolution and adaptation. We study the incomplete domestication of the South American pseudo-cereal, amaranth, and the domestication and cultivation history of maize. We use population and quantitative genetic methods to understand how wild plants became crops and how these crops spread across the globe.
