Agrisera Educational Poster 7 is the second poster in the series on epigenetics. The content was developed by researchers in the field, namlely Dr. Blake Meyers and Dr. Junpeng Zhan from the Donald Danforth Plant Science Centre (USA), Dr. Nicolas Bologna from the Centre for Research in Agricultural Genomics (Spain), and Dr. Rebecca Mosher from the University of Arizona (USA). The contents were transferred into the graphical representation by Dr. Dmitry Shevela (SciGrafik), (Sweden).

You are welcome to download the pdf or request a hard copy of this very informative poster on plant Argonautes.

The first poster from the plant epigenetics collection, "Plant small RNAs", can be downloaded or the hard copy can be requested here

We always welcome your ideas and suggestions for new educational posters. Do not hesitate to tell us!

Are you using another model species than Arabidopsis thaliana and lack specific antibodies?

Plant science has a plethora of species that are used as model organism. 

Arabidopsis thaliana: Perhaps the most widely used model species in plant science. It has a small genome, a short life cycle, and is easy to grow in a laboratory setting. A. thaliana has provided invaluable insights into plant genetics, development, and responses to various environmental factors. 
Oryza sativa (rice): A staple food for a large portion of the world's population. Its relatively small genome, and genetic similarities to other grass species, make it an important model species for studying crop genetics, as well as aspects of plant development and responses to stress.
Zea mays (maize): A major cereal crop. Its large size and genetic diversity have made it an important model species for studying genetics, development, and traits related to agriculture and bioenergy production.
Medicago truncatula: A model species for studying legumes. Legumes are important for their ability to fix nitrogen, as well as their nutritional value. Medicago is used to understand symbiotic relationships between plants and nitrogen-fixing bacteria, called rhizobia.
Physcomitrium patens: A model species for studying plant development and evolution. Mosses are simple plants that offer insights into early land plant evolution, and the transition from aquatic to terrestrial environments.
Brachypodium distachyon: A model grass species that is closely related to important cereal crops, like wheat, barley, and oats. It is used to study traits related to grain crops, including growth, development, and stress responses.
Nicotiana benthamiana: Often used for research in plant molecular biology, due to its relatively large leaves and the ease with which it can be transformed for genetic studies.
Chlamydomonas reinhardtii: A single-celled green algae, widely used as a model organism for studying photosynthesis, cell biology, and genetics. It has contributed significantly to our understanding of chloroplast function, and has been explored for biofuel production.
Diatoms:  A major group of algae known for their intricate silica cell walls. They are important primary producers in aquatic ecosystems and play a vital role in the global carbon cycle.
Cyanobacteria (Blue-Green Algae): Often studied alongside algae, due to their similar ecological roles and photosynthetic abilities. They have been researched for their role in nitrogen fixation, harmful algal blooms, and potential use in biofertilizers and biofuels.

... and many more species!

With this in mind, Agrisera continuously develops new antibodies with broad species reactivity.
