Unravelling chloroplast inheritance in wheat

A new study from the BBSRC strategically-funded institute Rothamsted Research reveals the way that chloroplasts are passed from one generation to another in wheat via only the maternal parent. Chloroplasts are important structures in plant cells that perform photosynthesis and mature from small precursors called plastids. Wheat, like many other plants, inherit their chloroplasts only...

Norway spruce genome sequenced

Swedish scientists have mapped the gene sequence of Norway spruce (the Christmas tree) – a species with huge economic and ecological importance - and that is the largest genome to have ever been mapped. The genome is complex and seven times larger than that of humans. The results have been published in the prestigious journal Nature. The scientists have identified about 29,000...

Germination-inhibiting gene identified in lettuce

The cultivated lettuce tends to flower in spring or early summer,and  then drop its seeds which lie dormant on the soil whilst temperatures are high, only germinating once the temperature has dropped. This built-in dormancy protects the young plants from the risk of drying out in hot weather, but is a hindrance to commercial growers in hot regions. In newly published work, a team...

Researchers ask plants what type of light they want

Enormous amounts of energy are wasted in greenhouses where our food is grown as a result of the plants receiving too much and the wrong kind of light. This can also stress and damage the plants. Researchers at Chalmers University of Technology are working on a globally unique method to measure how much and what type of light plants want. Current greenhouses use what are known as high...
