Salicylic acid is plays an important function in turning on plant defense mechanisms during pathogen attack. Salicylic acid methyltransferase (SAMT) regulates the amount of salicylic acid by converting salicylic acid to methyl salicylate University of Tennessee scientist Jungyu Lin and colleagues reported that SAMT gene from soybean (GmSAMT1) plays a significant function in the plant's defense against soybean cyst nematode

A team led by University of Geneva (UNIGE), Switzerland Professor Roman Ulm, has generated a transgenic plant which acclimatizes constitutively, regardless of ultraviolet B (UV-B) levels. This plant has a constantly active receptor, which endows it with higher UV resistance, associated with increased flavonoid production, substances which function as a 'sunscreen' and as antioxidants.

A group of researchers led by the U.S. Department of Energy Joint Genome Institute (DOE JGI) have completed a draft sequence of the monkeyflower (Mimulus guttatus) genome. They also identified the historic footprints of DNA recombination events that have shaped the development of this plant species for hundred thousand years. By extension, these observations should inform new plant breeding strategies that could be vitally important to developing improved bioenergy plant feedstocks.
