The Plant Genome
Featured: A Symphony of Genes Make
a Maize Plant
Genes provide the blueprint that results in the development of an organism; in maize, more than 30,000 genes play a role during the life cycle from seed germination to mature grain. In a study published in the March issue of The Plant Genome, Stelpflug et al. used RNA sequencing to measure the expression of genes throughout the life cycle of the plant. They revealed a coordinated symphony of gene expression underlying plant growth and development and provide a framework to translate genomic information to understand basic plant processes and to breed improved cultivars. >>
