The genetic control of rhizoid development in the liverwort Marchantia polymorpha

Abstract:

The first land plants faced a harsh terrestrial environment when they emerged from the water over 470 million years ago, and one of the key adaptations that allowed them radiate across the land was the development of a rooting system. To investigate the genetic mechanism that controlled the differentiation of rooting cells in ancient land plants, I carried out a mutant screen to identify genes that regulate rhizoid development in the liverwort Marchantia polymorpha, a member of th...
