Project Description

Plant germ-line forms during late stages of plant growth within developing floral organs. We use genetic, cell biology and biochemical tools delineate molecular processes that govern formation of haploid gametophytes from diploid precursors. We are particularly interested in mechanisms that regulate meiosis. We have designed a genetic screen to identify novel genes involved meiotic progression in Arabidopsis thaliana. The PhD project deals with functional characterization of the genes discovered in the screen and development of technologies for in depth analysis of plant germ-line differentiation.

Keywords: plant germline, regulation of meiosis
