    Oaks can live hundreds of years. Comparative genomics using a high-quality genome sequence provides new insights that may explain tree longevity. Samples from branches and corresponding acorns also help quantify heritable somatic mutations.

    Anther dehiscence is necessary for pollen dispersal and the following pollination process. Now, a molecular framework that regulates local auxin biosynthesis at the late stages of anther development has been elucidated to coordinate anther dehiscence in rice.

    A descriptive study of several of the oldest baobab trees in sub-Saharan Africa, which are some of the largest and oldest trees on the planet. The authors report that 9 of the 13 oldest baobabs have died in recent years. After describing the structure of the trees (including their false cavities), they also report the carbon dating of these trees and call for more research into the trees’ mortality.

    A high-quality reference genome of rose is generated by sequencing a doubled haploid line. The researchers analysed the genome structure and uncovered candidate genes associated with major ornamental traits through integrated genetic and genomic analyses.

    Plant-compatible adenine base editor systems are now demonstrated to work in protoplasts and individual plants of Arabidopsis thaliana and Brassica napus, yielding plants with predicted nucleotide substitutions and stably inherited phenotypes.

    Seed shattering is eliminated to facilitate harvest during African rice domestication, and the SH4 gene is known to play a role. New evidence now suggests that another gene, SH3, also regulates shattering during the domestication of African rice.

    Next-generation sequencing technologies have significantly changed the scope of ancient plant DNA research, moving from analysis of a few loci to generation of ancient genomes. Future research could refine our understanding of plant evolution and adaptation, and provide information for conservation, crop breeding and food security.
