The Slotkin Laboratory

Welcome to the Slotkin laboratory! We are located at the Donald Danforth Plant Science Center in St. Louis, Missouri. We are also a part of the Division of Biological Sciences at the University of Missouri-Columbia and affiliated with the Department of Biology at Washington University in St. Louis. Follow this link to our lab’s page on the Danforth Center’s website. For our latest news and updates, follow Keith’s Twitter account.



Our research focuses on how plant cells control Transposable Elements (TEs), and how we can learn to control TEs as tools for gene editing. See here for a description of our research.
