Abstract

The mechanisms that pattern lateral root primordial are essential for the elaboration of root system architecture, a trait of key importance for future crop breeding. But which are most important: periodic or local cues? In this issue of Journal of Experimental Botany (pages 1411-1420), Kircher and Schopfer manipulate growth direction to demonstrate the importance of both sources of patterning information.
