Plant development is the process by which structures originate and mature as a plant grows. Plants produce new tissues and structures throughout their life from clusters of undifferentiated cells called meristems.
The evening complex coordinates plant growth and environmental signalling with the circadian clock. Here, a comprehensive dataset of direct transcriptional targets of the evening complex uncovers a high-quality global regulatory network.
The nitrate signalling pathway now has a backbone. CPK calcium-dependent kinases are the long-awaited molecular link between major players in this pathway, the membrane-located nitrate transceptor NRT1.1 and the NLP transcription factors.
A genetic screen in the model panicoid grass Setaria viridis reveals the importance of the auxin transporter AUX1 for inflorescence branching in maize, highlighting how model plants can accelerate gene discovery in complex crops.
