    Plant senescence is the process of aging. It is influenced primarily by genetics and developmental processes as well as environmental cues. However, because of their significant complexity, the molecular networks by which genetics and the environment...

    We have previously demonstrated that tobacco-specific nitrosamine (TSNA) levels in Burley tobaccos can be substantially lowered using two distinct molecular genetic techniques designed to impede the plant’s ability to store high levels of free...
