Latest Phytochrome Stories
Aquatic algae can sense an unexpectedly wide range of color, allowing them to sense and adapt to changing light conditions in lakes and oceans.
Light is not only the source of a plant's energy, but also an environmental signal that instructs the growth behavior of plants.
Mild mannered though they seem, plants are extremely competitive, especially when it comes to getting their fair share of sunlight.
Flowering plants produce nectar to attract insect pollinators.
A team of researchers from Duke University and the Salk Institute for Biological Studies has found a central part in the machinery that turns plants green when they sense light.
A team of researchers have identified the courier that gives the signal to revamp the plant's gene expression pattern after photoreceptors have been activated by light.
New findings will help scientists understand how plants respond to light.
Charting femtosecond energy flow could aid redesign of molecules to improve light capture.
Researchers at the University of California, San Diego â€“ led by 2008 Nobel-Prize winner Roger Tsien, PhD â€“ have shown that bacterial proteins called phytochromes can be engineered into infrared-fluorescent proteins (IFPs).
British scientists say they have made a discovery about plant growth that might have an enormous impact on crop production as global warming increases. Researchers at the universities of Leicester and Oxford say they've identified a gene that's responsible for controlling plant growth in elevated temperatures. Dr.
