Credentials: The development of a plant is guided by gravitational cues, with shoots growing upward and roots growing downward. My aim is to further elucidate the molecular mechanisms responsible for the roots’ response to gravity. Plant survival under stressful conditions, such as those caused by climate change, is dependent on the development of a robust root system.
