Abstract Plants develop highly elaborate structures, ranging from small mosses to large trees. All these structures are made by stem cells and consist of a few basic types of tissue. The field of Biochemistry of Plant Development studies the mechanisms by which regulatory proteins control the formation of stem cells and tissues. The young embryo, developing within the seed, is the simplest model to study these fundamental processes, and to gain understanding of the basis for plant development at cellular, molecular and atomic scale.
