MEBS flowchart

Schematic representation of the 4 stages of the MEBS algorithm focusing on the Sulphur-cycle.

TF disordered residues vs tissues

Total disordered residues in transcription factors (PONDR VLS2b) vs number of tissues in several plant species.

barley drought experiment

Design of stress treatments and leaf water potential of barley SBCC073 (73) and Scarlett (SC) plants.

heterozygous mappings

Heterozygous mappings in barley occur when relevant loci are absent from the reference genome assembly.

nucleosome GFP

Model of nucleosome sandwich incorporating a single H2BGFP molecule (in red). The steric difficulty to accommodate the GFP tag increases if we consider that each nucleosome may contain up to two molecules of GFP.

interface annotation in footDB

Annotation of interface residues in footprintDB.

interfaces of R2R3 MYB TFs

(A) Sequence logos of the R2 and R3 recognition α-helices of Arabidopsis thaliana R2R3-MYB DBD subgroups (left) and of the bound cis-elements assayed on the Y1H experiments, classified into two groups (right).
