Biography

David Smyth works in the School of Biological Sciences at Monash University as an Emeritus Professor.

David's research areas of interest are:

  • How genes regulate the morphogenesis of flowers.
  • Using Arabidopsis thaliana as a model species to uncover regulatory genes.
  • Understanding the structure and function of the PETAL LOSS protein, its regulation, and to uncover the signals involved in petal initiation.
