When a seedling turns green: Scientists at UPSC have identified the link between light and chloroplast development

It has long been assumed that light activates chloroplastic gene expression via so-called thiol-mediated redox regulation. However, the mechanism giving rise to this regulation has remained elusive until now. Åsa Strand and her group at the Umeå Plant Science Centre have now identified the components involved in this redox regulatory mechanism. Their results are published in the journal Nature Communications.

Methods to handle troublesome operator functions

2018-01-15
Operator functions are used to describe many important processes in science. When things like friction are included in the models, it often results in operator functions that are so-called non-selfadjoint operator functions, which complicates the analysis of them. Axel Torshage presents methods to h...
