Flowering plants commonly duplicate their genome, or their entire set of genes, as part of their evolution. But research has said coniferous plants, like Pine and Spruce trees, don’t do this. Now, a University of Arizona lab is arguing otherwise.
The University of Arizona and Pima County opened their Water & Energy Sustainable Technology (WEST) Center on Friday. The new facility will bring together researchers with practitioners to address water scarcity and re-use challenges.
