Domestication fundamentally reshaped animal morphology, physiology and behaviour, offering the opportunity to investigate the molecular processes driving evolutionary change. Here we assess sheep domestication and artificial selection by comparing genome sequence from 43 modern breeds (Ovis aries) and their Asian mouflon ancestor (O. [...]

Profound metabolic and structural changes are required for fleshy green fruits to ripen and become colorful and tasty. In tomato (Solanum lycopersicum), fruit ripening involves the differentiation of chromoplasts, specialized plastids that accumulate carotenoid pigments such as β-carotene (pro-vitamin A) and lycopene.

14 p, 1.1 MB An artificial miRNA system reveals that relative contribution of translational inhibition to miRNA-mediated regulation depends on environmental and developmental factors in Arabidopsis thaliana / Von Born, Patrick (Max Planck Institute for Plant Breeding Research. Department of Plant-Microbe Interactions,) ; Bernardo-Faura, Martí (Centre de Recerca en Agrigenòmica) ; Rubio-Somoza, Ignacio (Centre de Recerca en Agrigenòmica)
Development and fitness of any organism rely on properly controlled gene expression. This is especially true for plants, as their development is determined by both internal and external cues. MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are embedded in the genetic cascades that integrate and translate those cues into developmental programs. [...]

The “Mutant Plants” workshop pursues the dual aim of promoting scientific vocations and publicizing the importance of Plant Science to meet current and future societal challenges. This workshop was designed jointly by the Centre for Research in Agricultural Genomics (CRAG) and the Research Centre for Scientific and Mathematical Education (CRECIM) from the Autonomous University of Barcelona (UAB), thanks to the financial support of the Spanish Foundation for Science and Technology (FCT-16-10825) and the Severo Ochoa program of Excellence Centres (SEV‐2015‐0533), both from the Spanish Ministry of Economy, Industry and Competitiveness.
