|Key gene to accelerate sugarcane growth is identified|
The sugarcane (Saccharum spp) is among the most important crops in Brazil, being a field of economic importance in country due to high consume of its sub-products such as alcohol and sugar. The maturation phase in the sugarcane development is especially interesting, since it is extremely relation to harvesting time and, consequently, sucrose accumulation. Besides, spite of sugarcane to ...
Sugarcane (Saccharum spp) is among the most important crops in Brazil, with a high impact in the economy due to the high consume of ethanol. The maturation phase in the sugarcane development is especially interesting, because this species has a unique ability to accumulate sucrose in the culms. Interestingly, there is a lack of knowledge on the source-sink regulation. Conversely, the us...
