  • In my talk I will focus on the development of leaf primary vein in the growing leaf primordia of Arabadopsis Thaliana, a plant model system. (syr.edu)
  • I will present a cell based model, that describes the formation and morphology of leaf primary vein in early stages of growing leaf primordia. (syr.edu)
  • In close experimental collaboration with a team of plant biologists, we show that the dynamic modulation of cell mechanical properties based on cell auxin concentration can reproduce primary vein pattern, as observed in growing leaf primordia. (syr.edu)
  • These and other studies have contributed to a model for leaf blade outgrowth as a down-stream event following juxtaposition of adaxial and abaxial cell types. (biologists.org)
  • model system
  • N. sylvestris is cultivated largely as an ornamental plant and it has been used as a diploid model system for studies of terpenoid production, plastid engineering, and resistance to biotic and abiotic stress. (biomedcentral.com)
