    Background Several dynamic models of a gene regulatory network of the light-induced floral transition process in Arabidopsis have been developed to capture the behavior of gene transcription and infer predictions based on experimental observations. It has been proven that the models can make...

    Bamboo ( Bambusoideae) is by far the largest member of the grass family Poaceae, which is vital to the economy of many countries in the tropics and subtropics. However, the mechanism of flowering of bamboo ( Phyllostachys praecox) is still unknown. In this study, we isolated two novel genes from...

    Appropriate timing of flowering is critical for reproductive success and necessarily involves complex genetic regulatory networks. A mobile floral signal, called florigen, is a key molecule in this process, and FLOWERING LOCUS T (FT) protein is its major component in Arabidopsis. FT is produced...

    Flower and inflorescence reversion involve a switch from floral development back to vegetative development, thus rendering flowering a phase in an ongoing growth pattern rather than a terminal act of the meristem. Although it can be considered an unusual event, reversion raises questions about...

    Biological protein interactions networks such as signal transduction or gene transcription networks are often treated as modular, allowing motifs to be analyzed in isolation from the rest of the network. Modularity is also a key assumption in synthetic biology, where it is similarly expected...

    The microscopic principles organizing dynamic units in complex networks-from proteins to power generators-can be understood in terms of network 'motifs': small interconnection patterns that appear much more frequently in real networks than expected in random networks. When considered as small...
