Winslow Briggs: where is he now?
Food-delivery process inside seeds revealed
Stanford, CA— Inside every seed is the embryo of a plant, and in most cases also a storage of food needed to power initial growth of the young seedling. A seed consists mainly of carbohydrates and these have to be is transported from the leaf where ...
How do they do plant research without growing a thing?
Human health and survival depend in large part on the chemistry of plant metabolism. About a quarter of our prescription drugs and half of anticancer drugs come from plants. These compounds, called specialized or secondary metabolites, are used to ...
Switching on a dime: how plants function in shade and light
Stanford, CA— Photosynthesis is the process by which plants convert energy from the sunlight into chemical energy in the form of sugars. These sugars are used by plants to grow and function, as well as food for animals and humans that eat them. ...
Carnegie Institution Receives Phase II Grand Challenges Explorations Funding
Washington, D.C.— Carnegie announced today that it will receive Phase II funding through Grand Challenges Explorations , an initiative created by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation that enables individuals worldwide to test bold ideas to ...
Biochemistry detective work: algae at night
Stanford, CA —Photosynthesis is probably the most well-known aspect of plant biochemistry. It enables plants, algae, and select bacteria to transform the energy from sunlight during the daytime into chemical energy in the form of sugars and starches ...
Right place, right time: Cellular transportation compartments
Stanford, CA — Proteins are the machinery that accomplishes almost every task in every cell in every living organism. The instructions for how to build each protein are written into a cell’s DNA. But once the proteins are constructed, they must be ...
Cell architecture: Finding common ground
Stanford, CA —When it comes to cellular architecture, function follows form. Plant cells contain a dynamic cytoskeleton which is responsible for directing cell growth, development, movement, and division. So over time, changes in the cytoskeleton ...
