Plant Hormone Biology
The primary research interest of my lab lies in understanding the hormonal regulation of plant growth and development under optimum condition and various stresses. For this, we are primarily focusing on the plant hormone auxin, which influences plant behavior from embryogenesis to senescence and exhibits complex interactions with other hormones.
