Put your 3D glasses on: Plant Chromatin is on show Natalia Yaneth Rodriguez-Granados et al.
The three-dimensional chromatin conformation is dynamically modulated by histone and DNA modifications, chromatin remodelers, noncoding transcripts and transcription factors, impacting gene expression and the physiological processes occurring in living organisms
Know where your clients are - Subcellular localization and targets of Ca2+-dependent protein kinases A Simeunovic, A Mair, B Wurzinger and M Teige
Considering the subcellular localization and co‐expression of Ca2+-dependent protein kinases and their targets help to understand the complexity of cellular Ca2+ signalling and the crosstalk with other kinase pathways.
Interrelated Modules in Cyanobacterial Photosynthesis: the Carbon Concentrating Mechanism, Photorespiration and Light Perception BL Montgomery, S Lechno-Yossef and CA Kerfeld
Inorganic carbon uptake and photorespiratory pathway genes in Fremyella are affected by the cyanobacteriochrome regulator of chromatic acclimation, suggesting interplay among photorespiration, light reactions and the CCM.
Perspectives for a better understanding of the metabolic integration of photorespiration within a complex plant primary metabolism network Michael Hodges et al.
Recent advances in photorespiration research are described and future priorities to better understand the metabolic integration of the photorespiratory cycle within the complex network of plant primary metabolism are discussed

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.
