University of Warwick scientists reported in the journal Science the first evidence that plants have evolved ways to control embryo growth and development by emitting information from surrounding cells. Dr. Jose Gutierrez-Marcos from Warwick's School of Life Sciences discovered that female sex cells and the placenta-like endosperm in plant seeds transmit specific signals to developing embryos to help direct their growth

Sweet potato (Ipomoea batatas) is an important food and industrial crop throughout the world. It is an alternative source of raw materials for biofuel production. China is the biggest sweet potato producer in the world. Thus, several researches were conducted to improved sweet potato through biotechnology.

Scientists from US Department of Agriculture (USDA) studied the genes of ancient grasses and found a gene that could save wheat from Ug99 (Puccina graminis), a notorious type of stem rust that keeps on evolving. USDA Agricultural Research Service (ARS) scientist Matt Rouse and colleagues studied a variety of ancient grasses such as einkorn wheat, emmer wheat, and goatgrass. Rouse and team found the gene Sr35 which confers resistance to the stem rust.

AtCBF4 gene, derived from Arabidopsis thaliana, is a homolog of the DREB1 transcription factors. It has an important role in the plant's drought stress response. There are four members of the CBF family, which are responsible for the plants' response to abiotic stresses. The first three genes, CBF1, CBF2 and CBF3

Botany Professor Simon Gilroy and his colleagues from the University of Wisconsin-Madison showed in their recent study what has eluded scientists for a long time: calcium is involved in rapid plant cell communication. Gilroy and his team found about it by accident when they used a calcium sensor as a control in their studies.
