Project description

Programmed Cell Death (PCD) is a cellular event leading to the ordered, autonomous suicide of a cell. We are investigating the cellular processes that are controlling the precise activation and execution of PCD during plant development. For this we are using different cellular PCD model systems in Arabidopsis, including aleurone, papilla, and lateral root cap cells.
