Plant Developmental Genetics

Welcome to Our Laboratory

Welcome to the website of our Plant Developmental Genetics laboratory. Our laboratory is part of the Department of Genetics at Trinity College Dublin.

September 2023

In our laboratory, we are addressing fundamental questions in developmental biology: how are complex organs formed from small sets of undifferentiated precursor cells? What are the molecular mechanisms that contribute to the regulation of development and how have these mechanisms evolved? For this work, we are using plants as model systems.
In addition to conducting fundamental research, we are trying to translate some of our findings to crops in order to produce new, improved cultivars. For further information about our work, please visit our research site.
