Abstract

[Truncated abstract] Seed germination represents a crucial period of a plants lifecycle, as it is the one opportunity a plant has to shrug off the restraints of a static lifestyle, and disperse itself both spatially and temporally.
The studies contained in this thesis aimed to provide an in-depth transcriptomic analysis of seed germination in Arabidopsis thaliana (Arabidopsis) (Study I); examine and define the critical role of mitochondrial biogenesis during the early stages of germination (Study II) and investigate the role of a seed-specific import component, that plays a role in the timing of mitochondrial biogenesis during seed germination (Study III).
