  • The development, published today in the journal Nature Methods, reveals how coloured light can be used to control biological processes in plants by switching different genes on and off.
  • The researchers hope that their findings could lead to advances in how plants grow, flower, and adapt to their environment, ultimately allowing increases in crop yields.
