Towards an understanding of root system wide integration of environmental cues

Towards an understanding of root system wide integration of environmental cues

XVI Congreso Nacional de Bioquímica y Biología Molecular de Plantas y 9th Symposium México-USA. Querétaro Dec-2015
Here we propose a framework for analysis of root system architecture, gene expression and soil properties to leverage the development of tools that allow integration of these multidimensional information to better understand how roots are able to adapt root function and shape to heterogeneous spatial environmental cues.

    We use luciferase to visualize roots in soil www.firefly.org/firefly-pictures.html Luciferase

    is great! •Does not require any light excitation •No background luminescence •LUC can be used in temporal studies •Dynamic response to gene expression •Multiple color reporters are possible luciferin + ATP + O2 → oxyluciferin +
