Research Description

Plants reproduce by forming seeds that are composed of embryo and endosperm. Seeds represent the next generation of plants and are a vital packet of energy, nutrients, and polymers used by humans. We study the genetic and molecular processes that create the endosperm, a vital support structure for the proper growth and development of the embryo.
