AFFIRM WORKSHOP with Maria Elena Zavala, PhD
Cal State University, Northridge
Professor of Biology

Plants are vital to existence on earth. Plants are eukaryotic organisms and share many of the same pathways of higher eukaryotes. Not only do plants provide food for humans and animals but also they are bioreactors that produce pharmaceuticals and secondary compounds that are critical to health. Roots are the underground parts of plants that "mine" soil for nutrients and water. The regulation of root growth and development is not well understood. As the world’s population continues to increase, we need to develop plants that are more nutritious, more productive, require less water, and are resistant to abiotic and biotic stress. This research will ultimately increase our understanding root growth and development.
