Day length Determines Plant growth? Yes, Clock Mediated
In a new study published online in Plant Physiology on March 12, a research group led by Professor Lei Wang at the Institute of Botany, Chinese Academy of Sciences, has made progress in understanding the circadian clock components PRRs transmit day length information to regulate photoperiodic hypocotyls growth in a model plant Arabidopsis. The hypocotyls of dicotyledonous plant seedlin...

Genes could be duplicated through multiple mechanisms, including whole-genome duplication (WGD), tandem duplication and retrotransposition. WGD doubles the entire genome which is a major source of gene duplication. It has been suggested that the retention of the duplicates from WGD were biased towards certain functional classes of genes. Especially for that genes encoding subunits of p...
Shrub encroachment may reduce soil inorganic carbon storage: research
Chinese researchers have disclosed that shrub encroachment might cause soil inorganic carbon reduction by acidifying soil, according to a recent research article published in the Journal of Ecology. Widespread shrub encroachment in global drylands may increase plant biomass and change soil organic carbon stocks of grassland ecosystems, said the research article. The researchers from th...
