Win-win outcome for soil carbon and crop yield
A research group led by Professor Yao Huang at the Institute of Botany, Chinese Academy of Sciences, have teamed up with Australian and UK scientists to clarify global patterns of the dual benefit of conservation agriculture in removing atmospheric carbon dioxide and improving crop yield which represents a promising opportunity for climate mitigation and sustainable food security to achiev...
Pseudonectaries: more than cheating
Mimicry is an important deceptive strategy that plants use to attract their pollinators. Pseudonectaries, or false nectaries, the glistening structures that mimic nectaries or nectar droplets but do not secrete nectar, show considerable diversity and play important roles in plant-animal interactions. The morphological nature and ecological functions of pseudonectaries, however, remain larg...
mRNA modification protects rice against sunburn
mRNA 5-methylcytidine (m5C) modification protects rice against sunburn in hot weather, according to a new study by researchers from Chinese Academy of Sciences. This work is published online in Developmental Cell, in which a methyltransferase OsNSUN2 was identified using molecular genetics and genomics to be responsible for one third of mRNA m5C modifications in rice. Gene mutation on ...
