dc.description.abstract The plant hormone auxin is involved in a wide range of developmental phenomena in plants. It carries out many of its effects through a signalling network involving the regulation of specific genes, including those involved in its own polar transport between cells. These transporters are able to be redistributed between cell faces, causing the asymmetric auxin transport that is a key requirement for the formation of vein patterns in leaves. In this thesis I describe the development of a biochemical kinetics-based model of auxin signalling and transport in a single cell, which displays biologically plausible responses to auxin application. The single-cell model then serves as the basis for a multicell model of auxin-mediated vein formation at a very early stage of leaf formation in Arabidopsis thaliana. en
