Cell and Developmental Biology [CDB]

Research carried out in the area of Cell and Developmental Biology aims to understand how processes underlying plant cell function and development are regulated. Comparative analyses further investigate how these regulatory pathways have changed during the course of evolution. In dealing with the diversity of scale encountered in this research area – from the molecular to the organismal - most research groups employ a wide range of approaches, including mathematical modelling, bioinformatics, imaging and genetics.
