Morphogenesis in higher plants is likely to be controlled by the serial activation of genes. These genes could be identified if the structure which they normally control is specifically disrupted when they are in mutant form. By cloning and characterising the products of such genes we could gain an understanding of the genetic control of morphogenesis. This report makes a case for following this strategy using Arabidopsis thaliana as a model species. This species is easily grown, has a short, 6… CONTINUE READING
