PROJECT SPOTLIGHT

Understanding the role of peptide hormones in determining root architecture

The architecture of the root system is integral for plant productivity as the spatial deployment of roots will substantially determine the ability of the plant to exploit nutrient sources.

This project is open to Honours, Bachelor and PhD students
