Development of plants with high biomass productivity by chemical and biological regulations of plant hormone cross talk

 Plant hormone cross talk regulates several biological events that are involved in plant life cycle. Recent development in plant biology reveals the mechanisms of plant hormone cross talk at the molecular levels. Therefore, it is now possible to increase biomass productivity by the chemical and biological techniques that regulate these mechanisms. The aim of this project is to find biomass high producing methods by combining the chemicals that can control the molecular events in cross talk and the manipulation of the factors that mediate plant hormone cross talk.
