Plant sexual reproduction is fundamental to much of the world’s food production. This process is crucial for the survival of species and is also partly responsible for the great diversity of flowering plants. We seek to understand the mechanisms involved in plant reproduction, both on the level of molecular signaling and reproductive cell development, and in regard to their differentiation over the course of evolution.
