Genomic analysis of 6,000-year-old cultivated grain illuminates the domestication history of barley

27 July, 2016
An international team of researchers has succeeded for the first time in sequencing the genome of Chalcolithic barley grains. This is the oldest plant genome to be reconstructed to date. The 6,000-year-old seeds were retrieved from Yoram Cave in the southern cliff of Masada fortress in the Judean Desert in Israel, close to the Dead Sea. Genetically, the prehistoric barley is very similar to present-day barley grown in the Southern Levant, supporting the existing hypothesis of barley domestication having occurred in the Upper Jordan Valley.

9 May, 2016
Aromatic ring deformation has long been postulated as a mechanism for tuning the absorption spectra of chlorophylls in their natural protein environment.
Dror Noy's lab provided the first direct demonstration of such a mechanism in the water-soluble chlorophyll binding protein (WSCP) from Brassicaceae. Their work is published in and highlighted on the cover of Angewandte Chemie International Edition (10.1002/anie.201512001).
