Plant Stem Cell Regulation and Floral Patterning

Research

Major Research Topics

We are studying how plants form flowers in adaptation to their environments. We have demonstrated that chromatin plays an important role in temporal and spatial gene expression, which governs proliferation and differentiation of determinate floral meristems. In addition to spatiotemporal gene regulation, we perform research on the molecular mechanisms that orchestrate multiple genetic events in ever-changing environments, as well as the plasticity and robustness of the developmental process. Our goal is to contribute to food sustainability in the era of global warming.
