Sabrina Sabatini is currently associate professor at the University of Rome La Sapienza. For years, Prof. Sabatini’s group has been involved in identifying the molecular mechanisms that balance differentiation with cell division, using the root of Arabidopsis thaliana as a model system.

Talk title and synopsis
Developmental boundaries: choosing between division and differentiation
New molecular mechanisms involved in establishing and maintaining a developmental boundary (the TZ) during root organ growth were identified combining molecular genetics with computational modelling.
