A cross-institutional group of post graduate students and researchers from Japan's Kobe University, Niigata University, NARO Japan, and CSIRO in Australia has revealed the role of genes in controlling flowering time in the Brassica rapa family. The B. rapa family is made up of leafy and root vegetables including Chinese cabbage, pak choi, turnip, and komatsuna. To flower, these plants need vernalization, a period of prolonged cold exposure which triggers flowering.
