Press release: Uncover the Mystery of Petal Shape

It is well known that floral organs like petals and sepals are modified from leaves. But their shapes are quite different. To uncover this mystery, we found that the difference of cell division region in primordia was the reason behind this shape difference. We further cooperated with a research group from Kyoto University and validated our discoveries with computational simulations. For more research details, please access the press release url.
