Plant Dormancy Workshop

This session will focus on the genomics and biology of both bud and seed dormancy of plants. This session will provide the newest information on genes, pathways, and chromosomal regions that regulate the transition through dormancy states (ie. endodormancy, ecodormancy,paradormancy, and from dormancy to growth).
