    Role of miRNA in fleshy fruit development
    MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are endogenous non-coding RNAs that negatively modulate the expression of genes by inhibiting translation or by promoting the degradation of target mRNAs, many of which encode transcription factors. Studies have indicated that miRNAs are master regulators of numerous developmental processes. However, although abundant in developing and ripening fleshy fruit their regulatory functions in these processes are still poorly understood. The goal of this research project is to identify novel fruit miRNAs and elucidate their functions using tomato as a model crop plant and state of the art molecular biology techniques including CRISPR/Cas9 genome editing.
