The first plant embryo gene expression atlas at the single cell level was developed by a team of researchers at GMI – Gregor Mendel Institute of Molecular Plant Biology of the Austrian Academy of Sciences. The work, published in the journal Development, is a milestone on the way to uncovering the molecular mechanisms that determine how the most fundamental plant cell-types are established at the beginning of life.
