Project description

Recently, we identified the transition from cell proliferation to cell expansion as a key developmental time point in leaf organ size assessment. In this project, we will perform a high-resolution transcriptome analysis of leaf sections, we will examine the dynamics of cell division and cell expansion, and we will develop a marker that allows us to analyze cell expansion during cell cycle progression.
