IJPB Highlights from Life Sciences at Paris-Saclay University

The three most recent ones

The veil is lifted on the secrets of plant reproduction, 23/11/23
A step of two for Arabidopsis thaliana meiosis, 28/11/23
In a study published in Nature Plants, the "Meiosis Mechanisms" MeioMe team, in collaboration with the I2BC and the Max Planck Institute for Plant Breeding Research, Cologne, Germany, has identified and characterized two new small proteins called, SCEP1 and SCEP2 that play a key role during meiosis in the plant Arabidopsis thaliana.

New insights into the secret of plant growth, 14/11/23
In contrast to animals, plants' cells are surrounded by a rigid wall. It protects them, but encloses them with a rigid skeleton. So how can they grow despite this wall? The PAR "Primary Cell Wall" 
PAR team, in collaboration with Swiss and Belgian teams, has shown that plants combine sugars and proteins to give the wall its resistance and extensibility, and thus enable cell growth.

An update on small interfering RNAs in plants, 10/10/23
In a review published in the journal The Plant Cell, two French pioneers in the field of small RNAs, Hervé Vaucheret from the "Epigenetics and small RNAs" epiARN team and Olivier Voinnet (ETH Zurich), take stock of the knowledge gained over the last 25 years about these ribregulators and in particular about the class of small interfering RNAs (siRNAs).
