A new study reveals how sorghum crops alter the expression of their genes to adapt to drought conditions. Understanding how sorghum survives could help researchers design crops that are more resilient to climate change.
A new actor in the immune system of plants has been identified. Scientists have identified the protein MAP4K4 is needed to mount proper defenses against environmental pathogens.
Biologists have described a new molecular mechanism that allows plants to optimize their growth under suboptimal high-temperature conditions.
Researchers have discovered a gene that controls the regulation of iron uptake in plants, according to a new study. With over 2 billion people suffering from iron deficiency around the world, the discovery could be the key to increasing the…
Researchers have developed a set of tools that make it faster and easier to modify large segments of DNA. The new tools are for use in a technique called recombineering.
