microRNA involvement in root organ formation and function in Medicago truncatula

Eyles, Rodney Peter

Description

Plant root architecture is regulated by the formation and function of meristems at the sites of root organogenesis. Meristem formation requires the generation of stem cell niches which produce the new cells of the growing organ. microRNAs (miRNAs) have emerged as regulators of many key biological functions in plants including root organogenesis. To identify key miRNAs involved in root meristem formation in M. truncatula, deep sequencing was used to compare...[Show more]
