Nanoscale movements of cellulose microfibrils in primary cell walls ($)

/
Cell walls are complex mixtures of cellulose microfibrils, proteins and other materials. Their mechanical properties can be measured and modeled, but it is not always simple to translate these measurements to changes at the molecular level. Zhang et al. used atomic force microscopy to provide an unprecedented…

Easy PDF submission at The Plant Cell

YES, you can submit a single PDF of your manuscript with your figures (and supplemental data) to The Plant Cell at first submission! We’ve realized that authors may not be aware of this, although it has been possible for some years. During submission you will notice that there are only two files…

Call for Papers: The Plant Cell Focus Issue on Cell Biology

  Plants have been a source of fundamental discoveries on the nature, organization, and function of cells, from the first description of cells to the dissection of the secretory system, and from insights into the role of the cytoskeleton and cell wall in morphogenesis to the discovery…

We’re excited to annouce the publication of The Plant Cell‘s latest Teaching Tool, “Computational Microscopy: Revealing Molecular Mechanisms in Plants Using Molecular Dynamics Simulations,” by Jiangyan Feng, Jiming Chen, Balaji Selvam, and Diwakar Shukla. Available without subscription at The…

The Plant Cell Is Accepting Applications for Assistant Features Editors

The Plant Cell has several openings for new Assistant Features Editors (AFEs) in 2020. AFEs provide a valuable service to the journal, our authors, and the scientific community. In return, AFEs receive experience in writing and communicating scientific findings to a wide audience, as well as networking…

Gene Responsible for Lutein Esterification in Bread Wheat Identified

Researchers have identified and confirmed the gene responsible for lutein esterification in bread wheat. The activity of this gene controls the timing of esterification in grain, which is related to storage and nutritional qualities of bread wheat and other grains. Researchers Jacinta Watkins and Barry…

New Teaching Tool "Computational Image Processing in Microscopy"

We’re excited to announce the publication of The Plant Cell’s latest Teaching Tool, “Computational Image Processing in Microscopy,” by Adrienne Roeder, available without subscription at Plantae.org (and in the October issue of The Plant Cell). The age of big data includes sophisticated imaging…
