What's AGAMOUS got to do with it?


This paper involved a collaboration with Dr. Wagner Otoni, visiting scholar from Vicosa, Brasil and Roxana Yockteng, former research associate in the Specht Lab. Check it out for some interesting details about how AGAMOUS gene expression contributes to the evolution of floral form, especially androcial (aka stamen) morphology, across the charasmatic Zingiberales!  Congratulations to Ana -- for this wonderful publication, and for the fantastic team that it brought together!!
