Welcome to Jane Langdale's lab website.

Research in the lab is broadly themed upon the genetics and evolution of plant development. We use diverse taxa including mosses, ferns and seed plants to investigate how developmental mechanisms were modified during land plant evolution. In addition, and as part of the Plants for the 21st Century Institute, we are using our understanding of leaf development in maize to engineer higher crop yields in rice.
