Light is a key environmental signal regulating plant development. Plants perceive different wavelengths of light using specialised photoreceptors. This information is integrated with temperature signals to control the abundance and activity of the PHYTOCHROME INTERACTING FACTOR (PIF) family of transcription factors. PIFs regulate multiple developmental processes throughout plant development. In this talk, I will discuss how light signals regulate plant architecture and the potential for PIF photomanipulation to improve crop quality and shelf life in controlled environment agriculture.
