The physiology and genetics of fruit formation: from genes to networks
Fruit Look (FP7-Marie Curie)
The physiology and genetics of fruit formation: from genes to networks (FRUIT LOOK)
FRUIT LOOK aims to address the following key questions:
Which are the genetic and molecular networks regulating fruit formation and morphology?
Do plant hormones act as morphogens during fruit development?
Can we elaborate a model able to explain fruit forms?
Fruit development is a genetically programmed process, unique to flowering plants, which provides a suitable environment for seed maturation and seed dispersal. Given the fundamental nature of both the dietary and biological significance of fruit, molecular dissection of fruit development has considerable interest
