The impact of intra and inter specific nuclear-cytoplasmic interaction on the regulation of central metabolism in wheat Conference Paper uri icon


  • Breeding programs relies on the understanding of the regulation of traits. Phenotypic diversity depends on the regulation of genes at transcriptional and post transcriptional level. Thus the interaction between nucleus and cytoplasm is a key component in this multileveled regulatory network. Nonetheless, in spite of the importance of nuclear-cytoplasmic crosstalk, the mechanisms by which it affects phenotypic traits remains largely unknown. In an effort to gain further understanding on the regulation of traits in crops, we have explored the role …
