Wang and colleagues review the relationships between key phytohormone classes and cellulose deposition in plant systems.
When getting cellulose to the cell wall, plant cells don’t rely on just one set of directions.
How do grasses make cellulose for cell walls? Brabham and colleagues have been examining the genes.
What is it that makes a plant get up and stay up? A new review looks at the creation of secondary cell walls. These microscopic features are the key to understanding the architecture of the plants we see around us.
Marcos Buckeridge explains how death and destruction in sugarcane roots can lead to the development of gas spaces, which improve root function.
Botanists aren’t always genetic engineers. This week Nigel Chaffey finds some have branched out into civil engineering.
