Report: G-protein βγ subunits determine grain size through interaction with MADS-domain transcription factors in rice

Report: G-protein βγ subunits determine grain size through interaction with MADS-domain transcription factors in rice

Abstract: The simultaneous improvement of grain quality and yield of cereal crops is a major challenge for modern agriculture. Here we show that a rice grain yield quantitative trait locus...

Report: Molecular Networks of Seed Size Control in Plants

Report: Molecular Networks of Seed Size Control in Plants

Abstract: The size of seeds affects not only evolutionary fitness but also grain yield of crops. Understanding the mechanisms controlling seed size has become an important research field in plant...

Report: Identification of Plant Enhancers and Their Constituent Elements by STARR-seq in Tobacco Leaves

Report: Identification of Plant Enhancers and Their Constituent Elements by STARR-seq in Tobacco Leaves

Abstract: Genetic engineering of cis-regulatory elements in crop plants is a promising strategy to ensure food security. However, such engineering is currently hindered by our limited knowledge of plant cis-regulatory...

Report: Epigenetic reprogramming rewires transcription during the alternation of generations in Arabidopsis

Report: Epigenetic reprogramming rewires transcription during the alternation of generations in Arabidopsis

Abstract: Alternation between morphologically distinct haploid and diploid life forms is a defining feature of most plant and algal life cycles, yet the underlying molecular mechanisms that govern these transitions...

Report: Chromatin Accessibility Dynamics and a Hierarchical Transcriptional Regulatory Network Structure for Plant Somatic Embryogenesis

Report: Chromatin Accessibility Dynamics and a Hierarchical Transcriptional Regulatory Network Structure for Plant Somatic Embryogenesis

Abstract: Plant somatic embryogenesis refers to a phenomenon where embryos develop from somatic cells in the absence of fertilization. Previous studies have revealed that the phytohormone auxin plays a crucial...

Report: The relationship between genome structure and function

Report: The relationship between genome structure and function

Abstract: Precise patterns of gene expression in metazoans are controlled by three classes of regulatory elements: promoters, enhancers and boundary elements. During differentiation and development, these elements form specific interactions...
