The Copenhaver lab has published a collaborative paper in PLOS Genetics entitled “Histone demethylase IBM1-mediated meiocyte gene expression ensures meiotic chromosome synapsis and recombination” which shows that a gene, IBM1, which encodes a protein that removes methyl groups from histone H3, regulates chromosome pairing and recombination during meiosis. This work advances our understanding of how epigenetic mechanisms influence plant reproductive biology
