Roots are of fundamental importance for both plant and human growth and health. Distinct cell type-specific programs within the root perform a variety of functions including defense, nutrient transport, mechanical support and growth. Root spatiotemporal transcriptome, proteome and metabolome profiling in Arabidopsis thaliana roots have given great insight into the diversity of cell type-specific programs. I will highlight how we can use these data and other genome-scale and systems approaches to map gene regulatory networks that regulate secondary cell wall synthesis in root xylem cells. In addition, I will discuss current progress in exploring natural variation in Solanum lycopersicum, and it’s wild relative, Solanum pennellii at cell type resolution.
