vSEED - the virtual seed

The vSEED project aims to provide a dynamic mathematical description of seed dormancy, after-ripening and germination, using the related species Arabidopsis thaliana and Lepidium sativum. This will be achieved through identification of key transcriptome networks, cell wall components and biophysical attributes of specific seed compartments that regulate endosperm rupture and radicle emergence.
