Crop roots enact austerity measures during drought to bank water
Stanford, CA — With a growing world population and a changing climate, understanding how agriculturally important plants respond to drought is crucial. New work from a team led by Carnegie’s José Dinneny discovers a strategy employed by grasses in ...
Feeding the world by rewiring plant “mouths”
Stanford, CA — Plants have tiny pores on their leaves called stomata—Greek for mouths—through which they take in carbon dioxide from the air and from which water evaporates. New work from the lab of Dominique Bergmann, honorary adjunct staff member ...

Yanniv Dorone, a graduate student in Director Sue Rhee’s lab, has been awarded a prestigious Stanford Graduate Fellowship. These two-year fellowships offer more than $150,000 in financial and career development support and are “awarded to only the ...
How algae could save plants from themselves
Stanford, CA — Algae may hold the key to feeding the world’s burgeoning population. Don’t worry; no one is going to make you eat them. But because they are more efficient than most plants at taking in carbon dioxide from the air, algae could ...
Four Stanford professors join Carnegie as honorary adjuncts
Stanford, CA — Four additional members of Stanford University’s faculty have been named Honorary Adjunct Staff Scientists at Carnegie’s Department of Plant Biology. Stanford’s Dominique Bergmann has been a Carnegie adjunct since 2011, and the newly ...
Some bacterial CRISPRs can snip RNA, too
Stanford, CA — You’ve probably seen news stories about the highly lauded, much-discussed genome editing system CRISPR/Cas9. But did you know the system was actually derived from bacteria, which use it to fight off foreign invaders such as viruses? ...
How plants protect photosynthesis from oxygen
Stanford, CA— During the daytime, plants convert the Sun’s energy into sugars using photosynthesis, a complex, multi-stage biochemical process. New work from a team including Carnegie’s Mark Heinnickel, Wenqiang Yang, and Arthur Grossman identified ...
Plant scientists: GM technology a safe tool to help meet food supply demands
Washington, DC — More than 1,000 scientists from nonprofit, corporate, academic, and private institutions say public doubts about genetically modified food crops are hindering the next Green Revolution. In a letter published in the journal Science ...
