Laura Mathieu studied at the University of Liège in Belgium. She got a bachelor’s degree in Biomedical Sciences in 2009 and a master’s degree in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology in 2011. Since 2011, she has been working as a PhD student in the laboratory of Prof. Claire Périlleux in Liège. Her PhD thesis focuses on the effects of flowering on root development.

Brief description of the thesis subject:

How the plant handles its root system architecture (RSA) during the flowering process is unknown due to the hidden nature of the roots. In this context, we are trying to understand how plants develop their RSA in response to flowering. To reach this goal, we compare the root development of early and late flowering genotypes with the wild-type’s. Our studies are performed with in vitro cultures and rhizoponics The latter is a system we developed to study RSA development of adult plants.
