Research in the Scanlon lab focuses on mechanisms of plant development, and the evolution of plant morphology. Utilizing comparative developmental genetics and functional genomics, we are especially interested in the processes whereby meristems make leaves and embryos make meristems. Our lab exploits forward and reverse genetic mutants of maize, Arabidopsis, tomato, and moss as the foundation for comparative analyses of fundamental processes in plant development.
