Plant protein structure database will help to uncover unknown functions of plant genes

4.3.2015: Rigorous analysis of the structures of thousands of plant proteins by Tetsuya Sakurai and colleagues from the RIKEN Center for Sustainable Resource Science has led to the construction of a database that will help scientists identify the functions of more plant genes. Although the complete genomes have been sequenced for a number of plants and their genes have been identified, the functions of many of these genes remain unknown.
