Project: Genome wide transcriptome analysis of lignification mutants in Arabidopsis

project duration
01-JAN-05 – 31-OCT-07
abstract
Lignin is an imporatant component of the cell wall and plays an important role in certain agro-economical processes. To obtain insight into the regulation of lignin biosynthesis and the relation between lignin biosynthesis and plant developement, Arabidsopsis mutants with defects in lignin biosynthesis will be analysed by a combination of transcript and metabolite profiling and microscopic techniques.
