070028: Increased Starch and Soluble Sugar Accumulation in Plants for Biofuels

The use of plant photosynthetic tissue, such as leaves and stems, for use as feedstock for biofuels requires desegregation and degradation of the most abundant form of fixed carbon, plant cell walls. Cell walls typically account for 90 to 95 percent of the fixed carbon in plant tissue, and due to their extreme complexity and recalcitrance to digestion,...

060104: Identification of an Arabidopsis Disease Resistance Gene, AtMIN7

Plants and other complex organisms possess an innate immune system that enables host response to a number of pathogens that would otherwise cause harm or death. Plants are usually able to mount a response to most pathogens and recover from infection. However, some pathogens have developed offensive mechanisms that attack, weaken, and/or destroy...
