Development of plant vascular tissues

My group is investigating how the plant stem cell population, vascular cambium, is genetically controlled to pattern and promote the formation of the vascular system in the Arabidopsis root. The patterning of vascular tissue during procambial development involves several mobile components. We aim to identify the key regulatory components and their interactions, including how they mutually control signal mobility during procambial patterning.
