The RDP institute conducts mainly fundamental research aiming at a multiscale and quantitative understanding of the development and evolution of plant reproductive structures (from flower formation to seed development). The teams exploit an internationally-recognized interdisciplinary expertise that includes approaches ranging from molecular genetics to cell biology, biophysics, modeling and systems biology in order to unravel the molecular and physical basis of plant morphogenesis.

The RDP lab is organised in nine research teams (see menu on the left).

  • Data management

    , by Annamaria Kiss

    The RDP backs FAIR (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, Reusable) management of reasearch data and encourages its researchers to use DMPs ( Data Management Plans) according to the H2020 recommendations.
    The goal is to AVOID problems presented in the following cartoon.
