Abstract

Development of the root system is essential for proper plant growth and development. Extension of the root system is achieved by the continuous establishment of new meristems in existing parental root tissues, which leads to the development of lateral roots. This process of lateral root organogenesis consists of different developmental stages, which are all controlled by the plant hormone auxin. In this chapter, we describe a screening method in Arabidopsis thaliana to identify small synthetic molecules that interfere with the process of lateral root development during specific developmental stages.
