Abstract

The plant hormone auxin is a key regulator of many of the processes that control root growth for the Arabidopsis thaliana, and is important in both lateral root positioning and root elongation. My research focuses on how transport of auxin affects root development. To see how auxin transport affects lateral root positioning and root elongation, I created transgenic plants that express an auxin transporter in specific cell types and carried out hormone application experiments.
