Understanding TMO5/LHW evolution

It is clear the TMO5/LHW heterodimer has a role in controlling vascular cell proliferation in higher plants. In this project, we want to understand if these factors are present in lower plants and if so, what the ancestral function of these transcription factors could be.

This research is performed in close collaboration with prof. dr. Dolf Weijers in Wageningen University (WUR), the Netherlands
