Plants are sessile organisms and must therefore continually sense their surrounding environment, which varies at different time scales. They must integrate this information to adjust their transcriptional responses and development. However, many variables that are of great importance to comprehensibly understand how plants respond to their environment have been historically overlooked when analyzing plant transcriptomic responses.

In this presentation speakers will discuss three of these: plant-to-plant variability, temporal dynamics and genetic redundancy. In addition strategies to incorporate these factors into experimental design and data analysis that have been developed in the plant community but that are of general interest to the wider gene regulation community will be discussed.
