Welcome to the Irish Laboratory

The broad interest of our group is in understanding the genetic and molecular mechanisms that control patterning processes in plant development, with a focus on characterizing organogenesis and growth in the Arabidopsis flower. We are also interested in the extent to which these pathways are conserved or have diversified in different flowering plant species.
