Scientific questions 2015

How are long distance wound signals generated, propagated and decoded in plants? How is jasmonate synthesis initiated in tissues distal to wounds? We are addressing these questions with the increased use of electrophysiology techniques coupled to bioassays with a variety of herbivores. The principal genetic backgrounds we are using are glr and lox mutants and fou2.
