Plant sex determination: functional characterization of the monoecy and gynoecy genes in Cucurbitaceae

How the gender of a flower or plant is determined is an important issue in plant developmental biology. The goal of this project is to use the information obtained from the sex determinism genes, recently clonedin melon, as a starting point to understand how the combination of alleles at these two loci determines the sex at two levels, the flower and the whole plant.
