Obtaining functional data is an essential component in understanding mechanisms underlying morphological variation. Virus-induced gene silencing (VIGS) is a reverse genetic technique for identifying the function of target loci through viral mediated transcript knockdown. Here we introduce this...
Developmental Basis of an Anatomical Novelty: Heteroarthrocarpy in Cakile lanceolata and Erucaria erucarioides (Brassicaceae)Download
To understand the developmental basis of a novel anatomical feature, we present a comparative developmental study of an ecologically significant novelty in fruit morphology. Most members of the tribe Brassiceae have heteroarthrocarpic fruits, in contrast to the unsegmented fruits of many...
