Cell Function Research Team
RIKEN Center for Sustainable Resource Science
(Team Leader: Dr. Keiko Sugimoto)
We investigate how plants control cell proliferation and differentiation in development or in response to the environment. We also study how plant cells reprogramme during regeneration. We take genetic and genomic approaches to uncover how transcriptional networks orchestrate these cellular processes and how epigenetic mechanisms regulate their progression.
