Rachel has served as lead manager of both Global Change Biology and GCB Bioenergy for over ten years and has been instrumental in the success of both journals. Rachel has overseen the development of GCBB as a fully open access online journal and the social media that has been a major part of promotion of both journals. Rachel has also served as coordinator of the Crops in silico project and organization.

Modelling Three-Dimensional Leaf Shape Variation

L-Cucumber’s leaf prototype mimics leaf shape of stressed plants.

Decoding Soybean Nodulation

A new framework aids in predicting gene regulatory networks associated with soybean nodule formation.

A new whole-plant framework simulates realistic water and carbon flow

CPlantBox generates a variety of 3D full plant architectures and accurately simulates water and carbon flow in the full plant.

MARSHAL, a novel tool for modeling root system hydraulics

A new computational tool couples a root architecture model with fast and accurate algorithms of water flow through hydraulic architectures and plant-scale parameter calculations.

How do you combine simplicity and realism in plant models?

Parsimony and biological reality are often seen as antagonistic goals in plant modelling. Hammer and colleagues argue that isn't always the case, and combining the two approaches could bring benefits to scientists as well as plants.

Modelling molecular-level processes using parametric extension of L-systems

It is now possible to simulate molecular and higher-level spatially explicit stochastic processes and study their behavior in the presence of stochastic perturbations

What experience has had the biggest impact on your career? (Part Two)

We asked the members of the in silico Plants editorial board about the experience that has had the biggest impact on their career. This...

What is the best conference or workshop you ever attended? Are there any upcoming conferences or workshops that you are looking forward to?

We asked the members of the in silico Plants editorial board about which conferences they had found useful, or were looking forward to. This...

Scaling photosynthesis from gene to leaf

Scientists combine models to create a powerful multiscale model that can identify key transcription factors regulating leaf photosynthesis.
