Project description

English EN

Studying permeability for better seed coat quality

In the expanding European seed market, improving seed quality is important. Seed coat properties significantly affect seed quality. Mutant seeds with permeable seed coats have defects that lead to lower dormancy, shorter longevity and reduced tolerance to stress. However, the mechanisms that regulate seed coat permeability aren’t well understood. The springboard for the EU-funded InScope project is a genome-wide study conducted on the thale cress plant. The project aims to determine the transcriptional network involving the regulatory gene ARR16, which controls permeability in natural accessions. The results are expected to generate knowledge for both fundamental and industrial research.
