Towards Understanding the Mechanisms of Flower Reversion in Arabidopsis suecica

Amelia Asbe, University of Puget Sound


Arabidopsis suecica is an allopolyploid hybrid descendent of A. thaliana and A. arenosa with a propensity for floral reversion. Floral reversion is a process where flowers produce vegetative tissue or additional floral buds from the inside of a pre-existing flower. For my summe research I investigated the causes of the floral reversion in A. suecica and presented my findings on September 8th.
