Welcome to Plant Developmetal Process Group 

Plants form beautiful organs such as leaves and flowers. Their development is achieved by cooperated cell division and differentiation. 

One of the biggest questions in plant science is how plant cells recognize their place and proper timing for differentiation to creat an organized organ. 

To understand the molecular mechanism of plant organ development, we are focusing on develpmental processes and morphogenesis of plant organs in several plants including orchid, morning glory, mint, Arabidopsis, and galls that insects induce in plant organs.  

Anybody is welcome to join our team to enjoy the attractive plants with words of molecular biology.
