We are interested in the study of plant hormonal signaling pathways, particularly cytokinins (CKs) in the development of model plant Arabidopsis thaliana (1-3), for more details see here. Ours’ and others’ data show importance of cytokinins in the control of cell wall properties, potentially controlling (a)biotic stress response (4,5). The goal of the work to be performed in frame of project recently granted to Hejatko lab is to determine i) the molecular m echanism allowing cytokininmediated control over secondary cell wall formation ii) the role of hormonal-regulated dirigent genes (AtDIRs) in the control of cell wall properties and/or stress response in Arabidopsis. The work will include applying bioinformatics, molecular biology, genomics, advanced microscopy and phenotyping approaches. Phenotyping will be performed in a collaboration with Photon Systems Instruments, Ltd. employing their PlantScreenTM phenotyping platform.
The position is available from January 2019.
