3rd Global Summit on Plant Science
Federica Della Rovere
University of Rome, Italy
Federica Della Rovere investigated the mechanisms affecting the initiation and development of adventitious roots in planta and in vitro systems, with a special interest in the genetic control affecting this organogenic process and in particular the definition of stem cell niche of the apical root meristem in Arabidopsis. Another interest is about the somatic embryogenic process in numerous species, and the genetic and hormonal control involved in xylogenesis.
