 Researchers identify new mechanism through which plants can regulate gene expression
 
Researchers identify new mechanism through which plants can regulate gene expressionJust like other organisms, plants must respond dynamically to a variety of cues over their lifetime. Going through different developmental stages, or altering their form in response to a drought or drastic temperature change requires altering which of their genes are expressed into proteins and when those processes occur.
