Seed Plants Exhibiting Early Reproductive Development And Methods Of Making Same

Abstract

The present invention provides a non-naturally occurring seed plant such as a transgenic angiosperm or gymnosperm that contains an ectopically expressible nucleic acid molecule encoding a floral meristem identity gene product. The invention further provides a method of converting shoot meristem to floral meristem in an angiosperm by ectopically expressing a floral meristem identity gene product in the angiosperm. In addition, the invention provides a method of promoting early reproductive development in a seed plant by ectopically expressing a floral meristem identity gene product in the seed plant.
