Scientists at the University of California, Davis, and the Center for Sustainable Resource Science in Yokohama, Japan, have used a combination of elegant bioinformatic and experimental work to provide insights into the genetic basis of the evolution of different leaf shapes. The authors, Yasunori Ichihashi, José Antonio Aguilar-Martínez, Moran Farhi, Daniel H. Chitwood, Ravi Kumar, Lee V. Millon, Jie Peng, Julin N. Maloof, and Neelima R. Sinha, identified a gene network and teased apart its regulatory cascade in three tomato species to reveal how regulation of KNOX homeobox genes has changed over the course of plant evolution, resulting in the variation in leaf shape seen today.
