An update on major microarray and RNA-seq studies, exploration of data integration approaches using gene coexpression network, and outline of important web resources.
Submergence tolerance in rice is primarily attributed to SUB1 gene action, but other associated traits such as leaf gas film (LGF) thickness, leaf hydrophobicity, porosity and leaf density have been known to aid submergence tolerance in rice.
Deficiency led to reduction of proteases and nitrogen mobilization in senescing leaves.
Dong et al. identify and characterise the cassava TLP gene family, MeTLP, at the genomic level.
Characterisation of the biochemical and genetic mechanisms that underpin plant responses to water deficit are central to the development of more productive drought-tolerant biomass crops, including fast-growing poplars.
How can plants react to so many chemicals? Do they need a vast array of sensors? New research says not.
The bioenergy grass Miscanthus × giganteus exhibits a superior tolerance to chilling shock compared with the other genotypes.
