Plant signaling, reproduction and development

The sexual reproduction of plants is a crucial process for the survival of species. It is the basis of much of the world’s food production. Moreover it is also partly responsible for the great diversity of flowering plants. We seek to understand the mechanisms involved in plant reproduction, both on the level of molecular signaling and reproductive cell development, and in regard to their differentiation over the course of evolution.
