Gymnosperms, angiosperms, sieve cells, sieve elements….what the heck? No more confusion, as of 2018, every lab member has to learn this 2nd splendid proto-limerick by heart, in addition to the “Ode to the tracheary elements” of course.
The icing on the cake for our CLERK publication in Development: the cover! An artistic arrangement of root tips created by Pauline.
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…).
Rodriguez-Villalon et al. out now in PNAS: “Molecular Genetic Framework for Protophloem Formation“, also made the cover of issue 31 (Vol. 111).
