Lab Concept: Decode the Secret of Genome and Make Innovation


How does the fruit develop? Fruit development is regulated by temporal and spatial control by gene networks in all cell types of fruit. By understanding and exploiting the molecular mechanisms of these networks, we aim to establish the technological basis for efficient fruit production even under unfavorable conditions, thereby contributing to current and future food security.
