Research Focus

Our research group has conducted a study to elucidate the molecular mechanisms underlying the morphogenetic differences that occur between juvenile and adult leaves in Cardamine hirsuta. Through QTL analysis, we have identified putative candidate gene(s) responsible for alterations in leaf morphology, encompassing leaf growth, cell wall structure, mesophyll cell development, and leaflet complexity.
Additionally, we have established that these traits affect different aspects of leaf anatomy that correlates with leaf complexity. In this project, we will study the physiological significance of the juvenile to adult phase transition.
