Project: Arabidopsis thaliana as a modelsystem for plant molecular biological research.
- project duration
- 01-JAN-93 – 31-DEC-99
- Using the AFLP technique a saturated genetic map and physical map will be made from A. thaliana. The biosynthesis and the mechanism of action of ethylene will be analysed in A. thaliana. The expression of the ACC synthase gene will be investigated. Different genes involved in the oxidative stress respons of the plant will be isolated from A. thaliana. Flavonoid biosynthesis will be modified by molecular breeding.
