Plant breeding began thousands of years ago when mankind selected better quality plants for a safe and reliable food supply. Nowadays, plant breeders need access to different tools to quickly develop new crop varieties that can deal with drought conditions and disease outbreaks that are aggravated by climate change. Learn more about plant breeding and scientific innovations here in English and in Dutch. You can also read more about genome editing in the VIB brochure "CRISPR-Cas" in English or in Dutch.

In two joint publications, De Rybel (VIB-UGent Center for Plant Systems Biology, Belgium) and Helariutta (SLCU, UK) research groups contribute to our understanding of plant radial growth by showing that several DOF-type transcription factors control oriented divisions in specific cells belonging to the vascular tissues called procambium cells.
