ncRNA and quantitative regulation of root growth

Thomas Blein
Institute of Plant Sciences, Paris-Saclay

The developmental plasticity of the plant root system allows plants to adapt to the large variability of the environment. This adaptation varies widely even between ecotypes of the same species despite the fact their coding sequences are highly conserved. Non-coding RNA (ncRNA) play an emerging role in the regulation of gene expression and could be then good candidates for the fine control of the adaptation to the environment. We aim to study the role played by ncRNA in the adaptation of the root system to the environment. To highlight the role of ncRNA expression levels on root architecture, we monitor the influence of their expression modification on phenotypes at multiscale: from the molecular scale passing to cell scale to the full root scale using quantitative semi-automatic imaging tools and modelling.
