Root and tuber crops have been an important part of human nutrition since the early days of humanity, providing us with essential carbohydrates, proteins, and vitamins. Today, they are especially important in tropical and subtropical regions of the world, where they help to feed an ever-growing population. Early induction and storage organ size are important agricultural traits, as they determine yield over time. During potato tuberization, environmental and metabolic status are sensed… 

Roles of Abscisic Acid and Gibberellins in Stem/Root Tuber Development

Root and tuber crops are of great importance. They not only contribute to feeding the population but also provide raw material for medicine and small-scale industries. The yield of the root and tuber

PEBP Signaling Network in Tubers and Tuberous Root Crops

Tubers and tuberous root crops are essential carbohydrate sources and staple foods for humans, second only to cereals. The developmental phase transition, including floral initiation and underground

Metabolite profiling of tubers of an early- and a late-maturing potato line and their grafts

Earliness of tuberisation and the quality of potato tubers are important traits in potato breeding. The qualitative traits rely on the metabolite profile of tubers, which are storage organs and net

Overcoming Challenges for Shoot Tip Cryopreservation of Root and Tuber Crops

This comprehensive review focuses on the history of cryopreservation protocols developed inRoot and tuber crops and the mechanism underlying cryoprotection and differential cryotolerance including the use of histological studies are highlighted.

Transcriptome and Metabolome Analysis Provide New Insights into the Process of Tuberization of Sechium edule Roots

Chayote (Sechium edule) produces edible tubers with high starch content after 1 year of growth but the mechanism of chayote tuberization remains unknown. ‘Tuershao’, a chayote cultivar lacking edible

Potato tuber degradation is regulated by carbohydrate metabolism: Results of transcriptomic analysis

Novel insight is provided into potato tuber development and possible management strategies for improving potato cultivation by observing that tuber numbers at harvest were lower than at the tuber bulking stage and that carbohydrate metabolism plays a crucial role in tuber degradation.

Solanum tuberosum Microtuber Development under Darkness Unveiled through RNAseq Transcriptomic Analysis

It is shown that 1715 up- and 1624 down-regulated genes were involved in this biological process, and at least six TFs–MYB43, TSF, bZIP27, b ZIP43, HAT4 and WOX9–may be involved during MTs development.

Leaves and stolons transcriptomic analysis provide insight into the role of phytochrome F in potato flowering and tuberization.

Photoperiod plays a critical role in controlling the formation of sexual or vegetative reproductive organs in potato. Although StPHYF-silenced plants overcome day-length limitations to tuberize

Salinity responses and tolerance mechanisms in underground vegetable crops: an integrative review

The present review gives an insight into the salinity stress tolerance responses and mechanisms of underground vegetable crops. Phytoprotectants, agronomic practices, biofertilizers, and modern
