Maize genome editing using CRISPR/Cas9 has previously been reported at both high and low efficiency, but with limited access to publicly available systems. In this article Char et al. describe the ISU Maize CRISPR platform, a public sector platform for maize genome editing, which is highly efficient with >70% transgenic plants carrying targeted mutations.

3-Dimensional biomechanical model for stomata opening
Autumn 2017
01 November 2017

How important is guard cell shape? Does cell wall thickness matter? Is isotropic material sufficient? Are microfibrils important? The interdisciplinary study by Woolfenden et al. addresses these and other questions.
