Nature journal published a special “Plant Insights” section featuring several excellent reviews. Zipfel and Oldroyd review Plant signalling in symbiosis and immunity (10.1038/nature22009), Bevan et al. write about Genomic innovation for crop improvement (10.1038/nature22011), Scheres and van der Putten write about how The plant perceptron connects environment and development (10.1038/nature22010), and Romero et al. describe the Quantum design of photosynthesis for bio-inspired solar-energy conversion (10.1038/nature22012). It’s a great collection of articles to help scientists and students to catch up on exciting research developments.
