Shoots, roots and mobile sRNA-related epigenetics

Last week PNAS has published something which would apparently contribute to future textbooks: Mobile small RNAs regulate genome-wide DNA methylation. You think that cutting / physical joining of different plants (grafting) will leave their genomes unaffected, right? Think twice! Authors show that mobile RNA travels between the two species and regulate methylation level of thousandsā€¦ Read More »
