Project description

Plant growth and the influence of the environment on this growth are important aspects of plant physiology. Despite the fundamental importance of plant growth little is known on the molecular networks that govern size and growth rate of organs such as leaves. This project aims to unravel the regulatory pathways that drive leaf growth in a systems biology approach.
