There is a bumper crop of publications in high quality journals in this
weeks UK Arabidopsis Research Roundup, including manuscripts in PNAS,
Nature Communications, PLoS Genetics, PloS One and Plant Physiology.
Malcolm Bennett, Alex Webb and Anthony Hall lead a major collaborative
effort that links the circadian clock with lateral root formation whilst
Ottoline Leyser (SLCU) and Mike Bevan (JIC) participate in a similarly
broad consortium in a study linking organ size and MAPK signaling. Liam
Dolan's group from Oxford looks at mechanisms of tip-growth across the
plant kingdoms whilst elsewhere three members of faculty at the
University of Birmingham are involved in two papers looking at the
regulation of meiosis. Finally there are two US-led studies that include
significant contributions from UK-based researchers, including Matthew
Jones from the University of Essex.
