    Histochemical Staining of Suberin in Plant Roots
    Authors:  Peter Marhavý and Shahid Siddique, date: 02/05/2021, view: 2155, Q&A: 0

    Histological stains are useful tools for characterizing cell shape, arrangement and the material they are made from. Stains can be used individually or simultaneously to mark different cell structures or polymers within the same cells, and to

    Seed Sterilization and Seedling Growth on Plates in the Model Grass Brachypodium distachyon
    Authors:  Aylin S Haas and Michael T. Raissig, date: 08/05/2020, view: 1610, Q&A: 0
    Brachypodium distachyon is a model grass closely related to wheat and barley. New resources and methods are being developed and Brachypodium is becoming a popular model for developmental biology, cell wall biology, (phylo) ...
    Transient Expression Assay in Strawberry Fruits
    Authors:  Mengting Pi, Qi Gao and Chunying Kang, date: 06/05/2019, view: 4721, Q&A: 0
    Strawberry, including the woodland strawberry Fragaria vesca (2x) and the cultivated strawberry (Fragaria × ananassa, 8x), has emerged as a model system for studying fruit development and ripening. ...
    Staining Maize Epidermal Leaf Peels with Toluidine Blue O
    Authors:  Marschal A. Bellinger, Sukhmani K. Sidhu and Carolyn G. Rasmussen, date: 04/20/2019, view: 6494, Q&A: 0
    Maize is an important model organism for understanding cell patterning and development. The regular patterning of maize leaf epidermal cells has previously been characterized using the dye toluidine blue O (TBO). The polychromatic dye TBO ...
    Micro-computed Tomography to Visualize Vascular Networks in Maize Stems
    Authors:  Akiteru Maeno and Katsutoshi Tsuda, date: 01/05/2018, view: 7436, Q&A: 0
    Plant vascular systems in the stem connect roots with aerial organs to move solutes containing minerals, nutrients as well as signaling molecules, and therefore, they play pivotal roles in plant growth and development. However, stem vascular ...
    Investigating the Shape of the Shoot Apical Meristem in Bamboo Using a Superellipse Equation
    Authors:  Qiang Wei and Peijian Shi, date: 12/05/2017, view: 4473, Q&A: 0
    The shoot apical meristem is the origin of bamboo wood. Its structure and morphology are important for maintaining the normal development of bamboo wood. However, the traditional method to describe the morphology of the shoot apical meristem in ...
    Non-invasive Protocol for Kinematic Monitoring of Root Growth under Infrared Light
    Phenotyping the dynamics of root responses to environmental cues is necessary to understand plant acclimation to their environment. Continuous monitoring of root growth is challenging because roots normally grow belowground and are very sensitive to ...
    Multiplexed GuideRNA-expression to Efficiently Mutagenize Multiple Loci in Arabidopsis by CRISPR-Cas9
    Authors:  Julia Schumacher, Kerstin Kaufmann and Wenhao Yan, date: 03/05/2017, view: 9509, Q&A: 0
    Since the discovery of the CRISPR (clustered regularly interspaced short palindromic repeats)-associated protein (Cas) as an efficient tool for genome editing in plants (Li et al., 2013; Shan et al., 2013; Nekrasov et al., ...
    Electro-fusion of Gametes and Subsequent Culture of Zygotes in Rice
    Authors:  Erika Toda, Yukinosuke Ohnishi and Takashi Okamoto, date: 12/20/2016, view: 8786, Q&A: 0
    Electro-fusion system with isolated gametes has been utilized to dissect fertilization-induced events in angiosperms, such as egg activation, zygote development and early embryogenesis, since the female gametophytes of plants are deeply embedded ...
