Can new careful methods help us understand how plant respiration will be affected by rising carbon dioxide concentrations?
A new framework aids in predicting gene regulatory networks associated with soybean nodule formation.
Marquez-Garcia et al. study the effects of drought in leaves and nodules of soybean (Glycine max) and find that while the physiological impact is perceived throughout the shoot, stress-induced senescence occurs only in the oldest leaf ranks.
This study’s results suggest the existence of unidentified genes for flowering in soybean.
