• Scientists identify networks for spikelet formation in barley

    12 days ago - By Phys

    Organ development in plants mostly occurs through combinatorial activity of so-called meristems. Meristems are plant cells or tissues that give rise to new organs, similar to stem cells in human-including spikelets. Spikelets are components of the spike and form florets themselves, which in turn produce grains after fertilization.
