Brief description Understanding how hormones control plant growth has transformed plant biology and driven major advances in crop production. This project will study genes responsible for the action of two new growth regulators, strigolactones and karrikins, and, by uncovering their action mechanisms, will obtain crucial knowledge to stimulate yet further advances in plant science.
