Wageningen Seed Lab

Wageningen Seed Lab | Wageningen Seed Lab | Scoop.it

The Wageningen Seed Lab is a research group within the Laboratory of Plant Physiology of Wageningen University. The significance of our research is in the understanding key events of seed dormancy and germination and other traits, but always with a view to the 'big picture', relating molecular and cellular events to the physiological changes that take place concurrently and in dependence of the (changing) environment.

After maintaining this Wageningen Seed Lab news scoop.it page for almost 7 years, it is time for me to stop. After a wonderful time at the Wageningen Seed Lab, I will leave the lab and start working for Keygene from the 1st of July 2018 onwards.

Interesting news item + small movie about our collaborator Jill Farrant: "Resurrecting crops from the devastation of drought" | Wageningen Seed Lab | Scoop.it

      Jill Farrant didn’t believe her eyes. This couldn’t be the same plant she’d seen the day before, lifeless and withering. She triple checked to be sure. No mistake: after rainfall the plant had come back to life. Farrant was nine at the time. Nobody believed her, but the moment inspired her to become an expert in resurrection plants.

New WSL publication: "Combined transcriptome and translatome analyses reveal a role for tryptophan‐dependent auxin biosynthesis in the control of DOG1‐dependent seed dormancy" in New Phytologist

New WSL publication: "Combined transcriptome and translatome analyses reveal a role for tryptophan‐dependent auxin biosynthesis in the control of DOG1‐dependent seed dormancy" in New Phytologist | Wageningen Seed Lab | Scoop.it


By Bing Bai, Ondrej Novak, Karin Ljung, Johannes Hanson and Leonie Bentsink.


The importance of translational regulation during Arabidopsis seed germination has been shown previously. Here the role of transcriptional and translational regulation during seed imbibition of the very dormant DELAY OF GERMINATION 1 ( DOG1 ) near-isogenic line was investigated.  Polysome profiling was performed on dormant and after-ripened seeds imbibed for 6 and 24 h in water and in the transcription inhibitor cordycepin. Transcriptome and translatome changes were investigated.  Ribosomal profiles of after-ripened seeds imbibed in cordycepin mimic those of dormant seeds. The polysome occupancy of mRNA species is not affected by germination inhibition, either as a result of seed dormancy or as a result of cordycepin treatment, indicating the importance of the regulation of transcript abundance.  The expression of auxin metabolism genes is discriminative during the imbibition of after- ripened and dormant seeds, which is confirmed by altered concentrations of indole-3-acetic acid conjugates and precursors.
