Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Crop production and productivity must be increased to provide a balanced diet for the global population. The entire genome sequencesof crop species allow the elucidation of genes that regulate important traits related tothe final crop seed yield, whichfrequently depends mainly on seed size. Seed size is a major factor that controls seed quantity and it is strongly affected by various biotic, abiotic, and genetic factors. Epigenetic marks in the genome and phytohormones arealso important factors affecting seed growth and development. Several genes are known to be involved in the control of seed size, but their interaction and functional characterizationhave yet to be resolved. In this review, we discuss the different factors that govern seed sizein cereal crops and Arabidopsis.
