Top 100 Journals

JXB named one of the top 100 most influential journals in Biology and Medicine over the last 100 years (view full article at DBIO100)

 

Welcome to the Journal of Experimental Botany editorial page!
JXB aims to publish high quality manuscripts that provide substantial new insights of broad interest in plant biology. We welcome manuscripts that identify fundamental mechanisms including those underpinning the improvements of plant for the sustainable production of food, fuel, and renewable materials. Our emphasis is on molecular physiology, molecular genetics, and environmental physiology, and we also encourage integrative approaches employing cutting-edge technologies, systems biology, and synthetic biology.

Coming soon:

Biotechnological exploitation of microalgae Gangl et al.

The production of high value products, genetic engineering of microalgae, downstream processing issues and engineering of synthetic communities are discussed.

Plastid RNA polymerases: Orchestration of enzymes with different evolutionary origin controls chloroplast biogenesis during the plant life cycle Pfannschmidt et al.

This review summarizes our current knowledge about the orchestrated activaton and action of the eukaryotic, prokaryotic and phage-type components in plastid RNA polymerases required for chloroplast biogenesis in vascular plants

Solid-State NMR Investigations of Cellulose Structure and Interactions with Matrix Polysaccharides in Plant Primary Cell Walls Tuo Wang and Mei Hong

This article discusses the use of multidimensional solid-state NMR to site-specifically detect polysaccharide interactions and the chain numbers of cellulose microfibrils in near-native primary cell wall samples

Penn State News: Selective breeding of maize over the last century to create hybrids with desirable shoot characteristics and increased yield may have contributed indirectly to the evolution of root systems that are more efficient in acquiring nutrients, such as nitrogen. Read the article: Evolution of US maize (Zea mays L.) root architectural and anatomical phenes over the past 100 years corresponds to increased tolerance of nitrogen stress by LM York, T Galindo-Castaneda, JR Schussler & JP Lynch

CNRS: Historical herbariums of the rare grass Sartidia are an unexpected source of genomic resources. These data shed light on the C3 to C4 photosynthesis transition in the sister lineage.
