Congratulation to Jakub Hajný (partly to our doctoral student) and all other colleagues from IST Austria!!!

Molecular compass for cell orientation

Scientists at IST Austria discovered how the hormone auxin coordinates the cells during vasculature formation and regeneration

The left picture shows how a plant usually regenerates a wound. The right side depicts the regeneration without the CAMEL/CANAR receptor complex. The injury cannot regenerate properly. © Jakub Hajný / IST Austria
