The post Sam Wilson talks to GARNet about Photosynthesis and NPQ. appeared first on Weeding the Gems.
Naresh Loudya from Royal Holloway University of London discusses a recent paper published in the Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society B entitled ‘Retrograde signalling in a virescent mutant triggers an anterograde delay of chloroplast biogenesis that requires GUN1 and is essential for survival‘. Apologies for the high background noise early in the recording. The post Naresh Loudya discusses nucleus-chloroplast signaling appeared first on Weeding the Gems.
Andre Kuhn works with Lars Ostergaard at the John Innes Centre and discusses a recent Elife paper entitled ‘Direct ETTIN-auxin interaction controls chromatin states in gynoecium development‘. We discuss a new paradigm for auxin perception in the control gene expression. The post Andre Kuhn discusses a new auxin receptor with GARNet appeared first on Weeding the Gems.
Bethany Eldridge and Tom Denbigh are co-first authors on a recent paper in Communications Biology entitled ‘Micro-scale interactions between Arabidopsis root hairs and soil particles influence soil erosion‘. We discuss the innovative experimental procedures that they designed to measure the interaction of root hairs with their environment! The post GARNet talks root hairs with Beth Eldridge and Tom Denbigh appeared first on Weeding the Gems.
Chris Morgan who works at the John Innes Centre discusses a recent PNAS paper entitled ‘Derived alleles of two axis proteins affect meiotic traits in autotetraploid Arabidopsis arenosa‘. We discuss the technical challenges of this research as well as the difficulties working from home (or not) with a super-resolution microscope! The post Chris Morgan talks to GARNet appeared first on Weeding the Gems.
Ludi Wang and Maurice Bosch work at Aberystwyth University and talk to the GARNet Community podcast about a recent paper in JXBot entitled ‘New opportunities and insights into Papaver self-incompatibility by imaging engineered Arabidopsis pollen‘. We discuss the challenges of live imaging Arabidopsis pollen tubes growing in liquid media!! The post Ludi Wang and Maurice Bosch talk SI with GARNet appeared first on Weeding the Gems.
Candida Nibau who works at Aberystwyth University discusses a paper recently published in The Plant Cell entitailed ‘CDKG1 Is Required for Meiotic and Somatic Recombination Intermediate Processing in Arabidopsis‘. We discuss this and plenty of other exciting future work! Please have a listen! The post GARNet talks to Candida Nibau appeared first on Weeding the Gems.
We talk to Anne-Marie Labandera from the University of Birmingham about a new paper published in New Phytologist entitled ‘The PRT6 N-degron pathway restricts VERNALIZATION 2 to endogenous hypoxic niches to modulate plant development‘. This adds to the story introduced in a 2019 Nature Communications paper that we discussed with Dan Gibbs on the GARNet[...] The post GARNet talks to Anne-Marie Labandera appeared first on Weeding the Gems.
Christophe Lambing from the University of Cambridge talks to GARNet about a paper in The Plant Cell entitled ‘Interacting genomic landscapes of REC8-cohesin, chromatin and meiotic recombination in Arabidopsis thaliana‘. The post Christophe Lambing talks Rec8 and recombination appeared first on Weeding the Gems.
Rea Antoniou-Kourounioti works with Martin Howard and Caroline Dean at the John Innes Centre and we discuss a recent paper in Genes and Development entitled ‘Noncoding SNPs influence a distinct phase of Polycomb silencing to destabilize long-term epigenetic memory at Arabidopsis FLC‘. It’s the latest episode in exciting saga that seeks to explain the regulation[...] The post GARNet Community podcast w Rea Antoniou-Kourounioti appeared first on Weeding the Gems.
This research team from the Simpson lab at the James Hutton Institute, University of Dundee discuss a recent paper published in elife entitled ‘Nanopore direct RNA sequencing maps the complexity of Arabidopsis mRNA processing and m6A modification. Apologies for the poor sound quality of the transmission coming down the line from Dundee! The post Matthew Parker, Kasia Knop and Anya Sherwood talk to the GARNet community podcast appeared first on Weeding the Gems.
