CANCELLED - Molecular networks regulating germination
Dr Mike Holdsworth, University of Nottingham
Wednesday 01 December 2010, 1600-1700
LEC Training Rooms 1 And 2
Centre for Sustainable Agriculture Seminar
CANCELLED DUE TO SNOW
Professor Holdsworth's research programmes focus on understanding the control of seed germination and seedling establishment, the function of the hormone Abscisic Acid (ABA), and plant responses to abiotic stress. Systems approaches, integrating genetics, post-genomics, physiology, mathematics, computer science and engineering, are being used to understand and manipulate plant development and environmental responses. Emphasis is placed on the transfer of molecular genetic information from studies in model species to address important agricultural problems associated with plant developmental biology and response to abiotic stress.
