Abstract:In soybeans, incoming carbon is fixed into the three major storage products of protein, oil, and carbohydrates. However, little is known about control of the partitioning of that carbon. Interdisciplinary research will be conducted on various levels, including mRNA, proteins, and metabolites, to elucidate the control of carbon partitioning. The mRNA accumulation pattern can be analyzed using microarray technology. The functional proteome can be studied using proteomics. And metabolic profiling will lead to a b… Show more
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and understand research articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by students researchers from around the world and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
