    • Between two fern genomes. 

      Sessa, Emily B; Banks, Jo Ann; Barker, Michael S; Der, Joshua P; Duffy, Aaron M; Graham, Sean W; Hasebe, Mitsuyasu; ... (19 authors) (Gigascience, 2014)
      Ferns are the only major lineage of vascular plants not represented by a sequenced nuclear genome. This lack of genome sequence information significantly impedes our ability to understand and reconstruct genome evolution ...
    • Crowdfunding the Azolla fern genome project: a grassroots approach. 

      Li, Fay-Wei; Pryer, Kathleen M (Gigascience, 2014)
      Much of science progresses within the tight boundaries of what is often seen as a "black box". Though familiar to funding agencies, researchers and the academic journals they publish in, it is an entity that outsiders rarely ...
    • NCP activates chloroplast transcription by controlling phytochrome-dependent dual nuclear and plastidial switches. 

      Yang, Emily J; Yoo, Chan Yul; Liu, Jiangxin; Wang, He; Cao, Jun; Li, Fay-Wei; Pryer, Kathleen M; ... (11 authors) (Nature communications, 2019-06-14)
      Phytochromes initiate chloroplast biogenesis by activating genes encoding the photosynthetic apparatus, including photosynthesis-associated plastid-encoded genes (PhAPGs). PhAPGs are transcribed by a bacterial-type RNA polymerase ...
    • Seeing the Light: the Origin and Evolution of Plant Photoreceptors 

      Li, Fay-Wei (2015)
      Plants use an array of photoreceptors to measure the quality, quantity, and direction of light in order to respond to ever-changing light environments. Photoreceptors not only determine how and when individual plants complete ...
