Expression of species-specific genes induced by iron deficiency in Sorghum bicolor

How has sorghum been able to adapt and diversify so extensively?

In this presentation Professor Elizabeth Cooper reports on her research that looked t changes in gene expression in response to iron deficiency in six different sorghum genotypes during early plant development.

She explores how these results shed new light on the possible role of these species-specific gene duplications in recent sorghum diversification and offer insights into potential differences in iron-deficiency response among different sorghum genotypes.
