Project: Identification of new genes involved in the lignificationproces in poplar by comparative microarray and 2Dgel analysis.
- project duration
- 01-OCT-00 – 30-SEP-04
- Microarray and 2D-PAGE analysis are used to monitor transcriptional and post-transcriptional regulation of gene expression in the xylem of transgene poplar, in which one gene of the lignin biosynthesis is downregulated and in the xylem of wild type poplar. Genes that are differentially expressed are selected and their role in the plant will be evaluated in Arabidopsis T-DNA insertion - mutants by phenotypical analysis.
