Bigger More Nutritious Grains

Humans harvest grains primarily for the nutritional value of the endosperm, the placenta-like tissue inside the seeds of most flowering plants that nourishes the embryo. Tzung-Fu Hsieh, PhD, with the NC State University Plants for Human Health Institute (PHHI), is leading research to unravel the biological complexities surrounding endosperm development. In collaboration with Xu “Sirius” Li, PhD, a plant metabolic pathway […]
