(2019-05-18)During meiosis, homologous chromosomes pair and undergo reciprocal genetic exchange, producing crossovers. This generates genetic diversity and is required for balanced homolog segregation. Despite the critical functions ...
A forward genetic screen to identify factors that control meiotic recombination in Arabidopsis thaliana (2019-05-18)Meiotic recombination promotes genetic variation by reciprocal exchange of genetic material producing novel allelic combinations that influence important agronomic traits in crop plants. Therefore, harnessing meiotic ...
(2019-03-23)Low nutrition availability in the soil can be a major limitation of plant growth. To improve nutrient acquisition, the majority of land plants engage in symbiosis with arbuscular mycorrhizal (AM) fungi. The accommodation ...
