Polarity, Plants and Picasso: The role and mechanism of tissue cell polarity in plant morphogenesis

Development involves highly oriented cell behaviours, such as anisotropic growth and asymmetric cell divisions. It is unclear how these orientations are specified and how they lead to particular cellular or tissue outcomes. We have been addressing this problem using a combination of genetic, morphological, computational and imaging. The results provide new insights into how genes interact to specify orientations of growth and division, leading to particular shapes. The talk will illustrate how integrating biological and computational methods may lead to a quantitative mechanistic framework for development.
