Project description

The aim of this project is to understand the molecular networks governing biomass production in higher plants. Arabidopsis and Brachypodium lines that produce more biomass under either optimal or drough stress conditions will be compared phenotypically and molecularly. Genes that enhance plant growth will be combined.
