Germplasm collections are invaluable resources for plant science and the elemental content of the seeds is a strong indication of the plant’s response to its specific environment. In this study, Ziegler et al. have selected 1,653 soybean accessions from the USDA Soybean Germplasm Collection and seeds came from grow-outs in 14 different location-by-year combinations. Then, […]

In STTM166 transgenic rice plants, miRNA166 is knocked down (STTM means “short tandem target mimic”) and the plants constitutively exhibit the rolled-leaf trait. Compared to wild-type plants, STTM166 plants exhibit an improved ability to […]
