Dissecting metabolic flux in C4 plants: experimental and theoretical approaches

There were many great articles concerning cross-disciplinary research at the interface between plant biology, mathematics and computer science before the launch in silico Plants (isP). We are excited for isP to be home to these types of articles in the future.

Mechanical traits of fine roots as a function of topology and anatomy

Root mechanical traits, including tensile strength (Tr), tensile strain (εr) and modulus of elasticity (Er), are key functional traits that help characterize plant anchorage...
