The formation of different tissue systems in multicellular organisms depends on the activity of groups of undifferentiated cells called stem cells. In vascular plants, the three principal tissue systems--dermal, ground, and vascular--are derived from specific groups of stem cells that are laid down during embryogenesis. We show here that SCHIZORIZA (SCZ) is necessary for the early establishment of the stem cells that produce the ground tissue in the embryonic root meristem. Our results show t...Expand abstract
