About the Project
We have been investigating flower development in a promising orchid species, Neofinetia falcata (Wind orchid, Samurai orchid). N. falcata has enormous advantages over other orchid species. In particular, the mutant collection which has been collected over centuries in Koran and Japan is an invaluable source to study orchid flower development. In this project, you will investigate key regulators controlling orchid floral symmetry, organ identity and spur development as well as perform transcriptome analyses. Experimental approaches such as molecular biology, genetics, plant histology and phylogenetic analysis will be used for the study. This includes techniques such as molecular cloning and expression analysis, in situ hybridization, immunolocalization, plant transformation and tissue culture, Scanning Electron Micrography (SEM) and sequence analysis.
