Understanding how the diversity and regulation of genes in plants give rise to different physical traits for example, early flowering and salt responsesRead about controlling gene regulation using epigenetics
Research in the Genes in the Environment ISP explores the relationships between genome regulation, developmental pathways and resulting plant response to the environment, while developing new resources, applications and technologies.
Find out more about the four themes of our research below.
Understanding how individual plant cells respond to the genetic instructions that they receive and how these cells then develop to create specific plant organsRead about improving understanding of developing plant organs and plant architecture
Understanding how changes in temperature influence plant and crop development and how plants perceive temperatureRead about understanding variation in plant traits in response to a changing environment
Developing and applying new techniques and tools in bio-imaging and genome engineering to investigate plant growth from the cellular to the field levelRead about driving technological innovation from the cellular to field levels
