PUBLICATION: A Phenotypic Search on Graft Compatibility in Grapevine

/
New publication: A Phenotypic Search on Graft Compatibility in Grapevine. Grafting is the most used propagation method in viticulture but is limited in practice by inconsistent graft success and difficulties in predicting graft compatibility of proposed scion–rootstock combinations.

Publication: m5C methylation guides systemic transport of messenger RNA over graft junctions in plants

Based on first results from PLAMORF and previous projects, this recent publication by Yang et al. from the Kragler lab in Current Biology points towards an essential role of cytosine methylation in systemic mRNA mobility in plants.
