The overall goal of this program is to identify and clone the gene(s) that regulate polyembryony in mango (Mangifera indica).
1.1. Using the annotated mango genome sequence assembly, identify candidate genes for regulation of polyembryony in mango. 1.2 Study the expression of the candidate genes in developing embryos using in situ hybridization. 1.3 Demonstrate "proof of concept" for candidate genes by function rescue in Arabidopsis homolog mutants.
