Biophysical Analysis for Plant Biomechanics

Biophysical Analysis for Plant Biomechanics

Plants growing in nature experience mechanical stresses associated with internal or external mechanical forces, as well as strains (deformations) caused by these forces. The relationship between growth and stress has therefore been a matter of interest to biologists, physicists and mechanists. The results of several studies on mechanical stress stimuli have shown that stimulation by mechanical forces produces a complex series of physiological and chemical responses within organisms and has a clear impact on plant growth and development and morphogenesis. However, the mechanism of action has not been clearly elucidated so far.

CD BioSciences focuses on the relationship between structure and function, providing indispensable scientific services to our clients to investigate the operating principles of plants. We provide our clients with quantitative measurements of structural and mechanical parameters related to specific characteristics, such as the ability of tissues to conduct water or withstand bending forces, which provide important information for understanding the developmental changes that occur in plant organs during their life cycle and under the influence of environmental factors. Moreover, we also provide technical support for research in mechanical behavior and mechanosensing in plants, helping our clients to uncover the complex strategies employed by plants to influence organ movement and morphogenesis in plants in the absence of muscle or cell migration.
