EMBO Conference on Interdisciplinary Plant Development

last modified Sep 25, 2014 10:57 AM

The Sainsbury Laboratory welcomed over 100 delegates from 19 countries to the EMBO Conference on Interdisciplinary Plant Development. Sessions focussed on:

  • Physical forces, the cell wall and development
  • Self-organising tissue systems
  • Self-organising cell systems
  • Comparative approaches and
  • Network behaviours

 This event marked SLCU's continued efforts to promote collaborative, interdisciplinary research in developmental biology. The conference is part of a planned series of EMBO Plant Molecular Biology conferences.

How to become a giant cell? Fluctuations in a key regulator guide cell size in flower organs.

Mar 06, 2017

A key regulator has been discovered to determine cell size in flowers through random fluctuations. Counterintuitively, this randomness can lead to patterns. This finding helps us to understand how biological patterns are initiated, how shape and size are determined during growth, and may lead to important discoveries improving crop yields.
