The role of microRNAs in Arabidopsis lateral root development
Denyer, Tom (2016) The role of microRNAs in Arabidopsis lateral root development. PhD thesis, University of Nottingham.
The root system of a plant serves to anchor a plant to its terrain, to take up water and nutrients and to provide resistance to various biotic and abiotic stresses. Understanding the mechanisms dictating root, and lateral root (LR) development is crucial for work towards global food security. In the last two decades, microRNAs have been found to play crucial roles in many plant developmental processes. Up to now, no global expression profiling has focused specifically on Arabidopsis thaliana LR development.
