Developing Crops for the Future.
Translating plant developmental genetics to crop improvement.
A plant develops from a seed through a series of developmental genetic programs encoded in the genome. These programs govern the formation of stems, leaves, fruit and grains; the harvested products of agriculture. CSIRO is hosting a workshop that will focus on the genetic programs controlling crop growth and development. This workshop will bring together researchers studying developmental genetics of different crop plants to discuss how knowledge of developmental biology can be translated to real world impact.
