O mém projektu

Plants are, as sessile organisms, constantly exposed to the myriad of environmental signals that together with endogenous factors influence their growth and development. The remarkable plasticity of the plant´s biochemical machinery allows them to integrate multiple of these stimuli to enable acclimation to the large range of growth conditions. In this project, I will use a multiple of "omics" approaches to elucidate the importance and the role of tripartite interaction of light, cytokinin and hydrogen peroxide for plants life. To study this interaction, I will use a plant model organism Arabidopsis thaliana and its mutant or transgenic lines with disrupted/modulated signaling of individual components of this tripartite interaction. The last part of this study will evaluate if the identified mechanisms are evolutionary conserved and shared between species. The cross-species similarities will be analyzed in agronomically important crop Solanum lycopersicum.
