Plant Developmental Biology in China: Past, Present and Future

XU Zhi-Hong and CHONG Kang   

Abstract:

Plant development is a process from germination of seed to vegetative growth, flower initiation and development, fertilization and finally to the next generation seed formation. A lot of achievements have been obtained in plant developmental biology in China. Since the 1990's, those young generation scientists returned to China from abroad to use molecular and genetic techniques to study morphological, physiological and biochemical process of plant development. The present paper reviews the progress in some research area of plant developmental biology in the past decades and also prospects the chance and future of plant developmental studies, due to the recent advances of plant genome sequencing and functional genomics in China under the international research background.

摘要: 植物发育是指从种子萌发经过营养生长、开花与花器官发育、受精结果形成新一代的有序过程。每一个时期具有复杂的代谢和基因表达与调控网络。过去的数10 年中我国在该领域的研究取得了许多重要的进展,特别是近10年来发育生物学已经从以往的以描述为主要特征发展到在分子水平上阐明发育控制的机理。花器官的发育研究是发育生物学研究最具突破性的领域,开花和营养器官的发育已经成为新的研究热点。本文按照植物发育的时间顺序,回顾了我国发育生物学若干重要领域的重要研究进展,并展望了基因组时代给发育生物学研究带来的新的机遇和研究平台。
