We are delighted that Pietro’s artistic root cross sections were chosen as the cover for the September 2017 issue of Plant & Cell Physiology! They illustrate his article on the role of the BIG BROTHER gene in root development, published in the same issue.
Pietro’s paper on the underground role of the BIG BROTHER gene in organ size restriction published!
Especially if it ends up in a publication. Latest from our lab & collaborators highlights CLE peptide receptor action in the root protophloem (and also cautions against background mutations…).
On the role of brassinosteroid signaling in root meristem development. Including our probably most spectacular result from a reviewer-imposed (…and justified) control experiment: Fig. 5. Also see this highlight in Development.
