New Paper in PLoS ONE, Our most recent paper was just published in PLoS ONE. "Biodiversity of Mineral Nutrient and Trace Element Accumulation in Arabidopsis thaliana" is our first installment of all the association panel data that we have generated. It looks at the corrections between elements within and between tissues in the initial 96 accession 'Nordborg' panel. It includes some very nice data on hydroponics grown plants from samples generated by Christian Hermans and Nathalie Verbruggen

by Zoraida Portillo The transformation of cassava from a starchy staple lacking in protein to a cheap supply of protein for food, feed and industry, may have come a step closer now that scientists have boosted the crop's protein content. Cassava ...

Understanding images: A giant single-celled plant, An excerpt from Daniel Chitwood, Ph.D., assistant member at the Danforth Center as the February guest contributor for PLOS Genetics blog discussing the image from Ranjan et al. Multicellularity – especially in animals – is considered to be an important prerequisite for complex morphologies that it can enable. Land plants, too, are multicellular organisms that possess exquisite architectures comprised of leaf, stem, and root-like structures

For his research into the architecture of plant species, Dr. Chitwood often relies on statistical techniques that allow a researcher to quantify a shape and then compare it to others. He wondered if he could use the same method to understand how the shape of string instruments has changed over time.
(International New York Times) How Stradivari Came to Dictate Violin Design, By STEPHEN HEYMAN The shape of a violin has evolved throughout its 450-year history, but a new paper by a scientist who analyzed more than 4,000 historical violins shows just how much its form was influenced by the 17th-century master luthier Antonio Stradivari. The study, published in the open-access journal PLOS ONE, was written by Dan Chitwood, a self-described “lapsed violist” who is a researcher at the Donald

What Are Little Boys and Girls Made of? The Origins of Sexual Dimorphism
https://www.danforthcenter.org/news-media/roots-shoots-blog/blog-item/what-are-little-boys-and-girls-made-of-the-origins-of-sexual-dimorphism
As PLOS Biology points out, this research is important with the knowledge of how plants works, particularly algae and the distinction of females and males and secondly this will help improve the prospects of algae as a biofuel crop and potential breeding programs with the availability to tune the process as of source as oil.
What Are Little Boys and Girls Made of? The Origins of Sexual Dimorphism, An excerpt from: Roland G. Roberts, PLOS Biology July 08, 2014 Snips and snails and puppy dogs' tails, or sugar and spice and all things nice? From our animal-centered point of view, the distinction between males and female, just published in PLOS Biology, have exploited two species of volvocine algae to probe how, here.
