Department of Biology, University of Missouri St Louis, 63121, USA

- SEPALLATA gene diversification: brave new whorlsSimon T Malcomber
Department of Biology, University of Missouri St Louis, One University Boulevard, Saint Louis, MO 63121, USA
Trends Plant Sci 10:427-35. 2005..Although some SEP genes appear to function redundantly, others have novel roles in fruit maturation, floral organ specification and plant architecture, and have played a major role in floral evolution of diverse plants...

University of Missouri, Department of Biology, Saint Louis, 63121, USA
Genetics 169:1659-72. 2005..Searches of regions of the sequenced rice genome orthologous to QTL regions on foxtail millet identified a number of transcription factors and hormone pathway genes that may be involved in control of inflorescence branching...

Department of Biology, University of Missouri St Louis, 63121, USA
Plant Cell 16:1692-706. 2004..We hypothesize that LHS1 may have affected morphological diversification of grass inflorescences by mediating the expression of different floral identity genes in different regions of the floret and spikelet...
