Modelling meristem development in plants

Heisler, Marcus G. and Jönsson, Henrik LU (2007) In Current Opinion in Plant Biology 10(1). p.92-97
Abstract
Meristems continually supply new cells for post-embryonic plant development and coordinate the initiation of new organs, such as leaves and flowers. Meristem function is regulated by a large and interconnected dynamic system that includes transcription networks, intercellular protein signalling, polarized transport of hormones and a constantly changing cellular topology. Mathematical modelling, in which the dynamics of a system are simulated using explicitly defined interactions, can serve as a powerful tool for examining the expected behaviour of such a system given our present knowledge and assumptions. Modelling can also help to investigate new hypotheses in silico both to validate ideas and to obtain inspiration for new experiments.... (More)

Several recent studies have used new molecular data together with modelling and computational techniques to investigate meristem function. (Less)
