Julia Schmid - AG Simon

In contrast to animals, that form all their organs during embryogenesis, plants are able to form new organs throughout their whole life. This continuous growth is controlled by meristems that harbour stem cells. The aim of my PhD project is to analyse receptor ligand interactions that control meristem maintenance.
