Towards a systems biology approach to understanding seed dormancy and germination

, : Towards a systems biology approach to understanding seed dormancy and germination. Proceedings. Biological Sciences 276(1673): 3561-3569

Seed germination is the first adaptive decision in the development of many land plants. Advances in genetics and molecular physiology have taught us much about the control of germination using the model plant Arabidopsis thaliana. Here we review the current state of the art with an emphasis on mechanistic considerations and explore the potential impact of a systems biology approach to the problem.

The use of low-dose aspirin to prevent cardiovascular disease events is well established. However, the incidence and predictors of upper gastrointestinal bleeding (UGIB) with its use are unknown. We studied prospectively the incidence and outcome...

The purpose of a staging system is to stage embryos by morphology rather than chronology. This is particularly useful when embryos do not develop exactly synchronously, as in the case of the chick. At present the Hamburger and Hamilton (1951) seri...
