    Grene, Ruth; Klumas, Curtis; Suren, Haktan; Yang, Kuan; Collakova, Eva; Myers, Elijah; Heath, Lenwood S.; Holliday, Jason A. (Frontiers, 2012)
    Microarray gene expression profiling is a powerful technique to understand complex developmental processes, but making biologically meaningful inferences from such studies has always been challenging. We previously reported ...
  • Vernalization and the chilling requirement to exit bud dormancy: shared or separate regulation? 

    Brunner, Amy M.; Evans, Luke M.; Hsu, Chuan-Yu; Sheng, Xiaoyan (Frontiers, 2014-12-17)
    Similarities have long been recognized between vernalization, the prolonged exposure to cold temperatures that promotes the floral transition in many plants, and the chilling requirement to release bud dormancy in woody ...
  • Strategies for Engineering Reproductive Sterility in Plantation Forests 

    Fritsche, Steffi; Klocko, Amy L.; Boron, Agnieszka; Brunner, Amy M.; Thorlby, Glenn (2018-11-15)
