    Amoiroglou, Anastasia (East Carolina University, 2019-07-15)
    Polytypic1 (Pt1) is a semi-dominant mutant in maize that affects inflorescence development. To understand how Pt1 functions in development, I examined the phenotype of Pt1 mutants in multiple inbred backgrounds. Pt1 defects ...
  • Control of maize development by microRNA and auxin regulated pathways 

    Wilson, Jessica (East Carolina University, 2018-12-10)
    Plant architecture and inflorescence architecture, in particular, are major determinates of yield. Plant architecture is dependent upon the activity of meristems. Meristems are vital to plant development because they not ...
