Small RNA functions in plant embryos

Research focus

MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are a class of small regulatory RNAs that are essential for plant embryo development. Our major goal is to understand how miRNAs shape the gene regulatory networks that control plant embryogenesis. We are using a combination of cutting-edge experimental and computational approaches to achieve this aim.
