Dying to Live: Cell elimination as a Developmental Strategy in Angiosperm Seeds Gwyneth Ingram
Cell elimination occurs frequently during plant organ development but is particularly prevalent in seeds. This observation in light of the seed's unique structural characteristics and evolutionary history
Nitrogen Remobilisation during Leaf Senescence from Arabidopsis to Crops Marien Havé Anne Marmagne, Fabien Chardon, and Céline Masclaux-Daubresse
Overview of the mechanisms involved in nitrogen recycling and remobilisation during leaf senescence and to present the different approaches undertaken to improve nitrogen remobilisation efficiency using both model plants and crop species
Late Seed Maturation: Drying without Dying Olivier Leprince , Anthoni Pellizzaro, Souha Berriri and Julia Buitink
This review highlights our current knowledge on the processes and regulatory mechanism that occur during late maturation of developing seeds and that underlie the preparation for the dry state
Challenges and Perspectives in Commercializing Plastid Transformation Technology Niaz Ahmad, Franck Michoux, Andreas Lössl and Peter J. Nixon
This article discusses the technology of transforming the plastid genome, the positive and negative features compared to nuclear transformation and the current challenges that need to be addressed for successful commercialization
How can we improve Crop Genotypes to increase Stress Resilience and Productivity in a future climate? AA Thiry, PN Chavez Dulanto, MP Reynolds and WJ Davies
Developing a new crop breeding tool to improve genotype selection for sustainable production of wheat, while delivering increased understanding of whether a high yield under stress is due to resilience or productivity or both.
