What’s new

The plant body is primarily formed in the shoot and root apical meristems, and organ primordia undergo cell proliferation to form mature organs. Our interests are how different meristem types, organ types and cell types are created and how tissues are organized. Basic architecture of plants is genetically determined, but plants flexibly change their size and number of units, depending on environments; and we study on this aspect also. The plant growth depends on self-organizing mechanisms involving interacting elements (genes, proteins and metabolites), thus we also aim to integrated understanding of plant growth.
