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

(SciDev.Net) Researchers boost protein content of GM cassava
https://www.danforthcenter.org/news-media/in-the-news/in-the-news-item/(SciDev.Net)-Researchers-boost-protein-content-of-GM-cassava
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 ...

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. As, PLOS Biology points out, this research is important with the knowledge of how

New Paper in PLosONE, Anthony Becker was an undergraduate summer intern in the lab as part of the Danforth Center NSF-REU program. He did a great job learning how to code in R and the basics of mapping genetics. Tony worked to apply methods developed to map genes using older microarrays to newer, high density single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) arrays. His efforts resulted in a new paper in PLoS ONE: Bulk Segregant Analysis Using Single Nucleotide Polymorphism Microarrays. Tony has stayed
Discovery in Algae Reveals Evolutionary Origin of Sexes
https://www.danforthcenter.org/news-media/news-releases/news-item/discovery-in-algae-reveals-evolutionary-origin-of-sexes
A discovery, by Center scientist, Jim Umen, Ph.D., in the multicellular green alga, Volvox carteri, has revealed the origin of male and female sexes, showing how they evolved from a more primitive mating system in a unicellular relative.
. Their findings, published on July 8, 2014 in PLOS Biology, also provide a possible blueprint for how sexes
