Fruitlook - PIRSES International Consortium on fruit development Development project
Franks, Robert G


"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"
