Plant Developmental Genetics

Welcome to Our Laboratory

Welcome to the website of our Plant Developmental Genetics laboratory. Our laboratory is part of the Smurfit Institute, which is home to the Department of Genetics at Trinity College Dublin.

July, 2017

In our laboratory, we are addressing fundamental questions in developmental biology: how are complex organs formed from small sets of undifferentiated precursor cells and what are the genes and molecular mechanisms that contribute to the regulation of development? We are also trying to translate some of our findings from basic research to crop plants to produce new varieties with increased yield.
For our research, we are using a combination of molecular genetics, genomics, and biochemistry. For further information about our work, please visit our research site.
