Our research investigates the physiology of organ specific processes and how they interact at the whole-plant level. Investigations, so far, have involved everything from small herbs to crops and mature trees. The results have implications for crop farming practice and the well-being of natural ecosystems.
Additionally, we are investigating the presence and the potential role for cytokinins in other groups of organisms, not related to plant kingdom, including bacteria, slime mold, nematodes, microalgae, seaweeds, insects, and even mammals.
