Genetic toolkit finds new maximum for crop yields

Scientists at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory (CSHL) today announced a new way to dramatically increase crop yields by improving upon Mother Nature’s offerings. A team led by Associate Professor Zachary Lippman, in collaboration with Israeli colleagues, has discovered a set of gene variations that can boost fruit production in the tomato plant by as much as 100%.  Plant breeders...

New clues about protein mechanism critical to plant development and yield

Scientists at the Donald Danforth Plant Science Center have made several scientific discoveries demonstrating the significant roles Heterotrimeric G proteins play in plant development and yield.   Sona Pandey, Ph.D.  and collaborators showed that “G proteins” occur in a wide range of land plants and algae. This discovery was published in the October 2013 issue of Plant...
