- ... Cell wall recalcitrance, which is conferred in part by lignin, is the main bottleneck in lignocellulosic ethanol production. Transcription factors (TFs) have been suggested as targets to reduce or modify lignin. Here we analysed the expression profile of nine sugarcane TFs, their relationships with genes of the monolignol biosynthesis pathway, and their effects on lignin content and composition. O ...

- ... Seed dormancy is an important trait during the domestication of major crops. Dormant seeds are unable to germinate under conditions normally suitable for non-dormant seeds. Quantitative trait loci (QTLs) and genes affecting seed dormancy in sorghum remain largely unknown. To identify the genomic regions controlling seed dormancy in sorghum, we produced two F₂ segregating populations from two cross ...
