It’s been a really exciting time for the lab over the last few weeks, as we have pre-printed not one but three new manuscripts! This is is all work that has been started since I moved to Leeds, so it feels like the first true ‘crop’ of research from the Bennett Lab. It’s been a huge effort from everyone involved, so congratulations to all. I think the manuscripts really showcase what we are all about!
Auxin export from proximal fruits drives arrest in competent inflorescence meristems
Root density sensing allows pro-active modulation of shoot growth to avoid future resource limitation
KAI2 regulates root and root hair development by modulating auxin distribution
All of these manuscripts have also been submitted, so hopefully they’ll be appearing in press soon!
