Welcome! Our primary research focus is the study of flowering time and seed development in plants. These two processes determine reproductive timing and fruit/seed generation, contributing to human and animal nutritional needs by way of quality and yield. We examine these developmental features in the context of plant response under conditions of abiotic stress such as salt, drought and photoperiod. More info...

The latest Plant Ontology Paper is available online from Plant and Cell Physiology

We just heard the news that the recent Plant Ontology Paper is available online from Plant and Cell Physiology: http://pcp.oxfordjournals.org/content/early/2012/12/05/pcp.pcs163.abstra...

Right now it is just the abstract with a link to the full text accepted proof. But it has been assigned a DOI, in case you would like to cite it.
