Comparison of dark- and light-exposed samples revealed 168 differentially expressed genes in the TUR accession, comprising 51 up-regulated and 117 down-regulated genes in seeds kept in darkness compared with those kept in light ( Fig. Seed structure: the cross-section shows that the seeds are elliptic, attached seeds are 2.5 mm x 1.5 mm in size and covered with glandular dots. World-wide research in molecular biology is producing large amounts of data that stand in need of computerised analysis. Two opposing forces provide the basic physiological mechanism for the control of seed germination timing and synchrony: The increase in the growth potential of the embryo leading to cell-wall extension growth, and the restraint weakening of the various seed covering layers including endosperm, testa (seed coat), pericarp (fruit coat), and artificial envelopes applied by seed technologists. Seeds are the preferred germplasm that can be conserved and maintained for hundreds of years, and, thus, are central to the conservation of biodiversity of crops and wild species as genetic resources for future crop breeding programs also related to climate change. Before the seed-bearing leaf reaches the mature stage, the rimiform ("having a long furrow") micropyle is covered with lid area, and the lamina where the seeds are situated appears to be slightly convex. biofuel crops). Our long-term goal is to understand the mechanistic basis underlying seed dormancy, longevity and germination to be able to improve 
seed quality and seedling performance (vigour, timing, uniformity and environmental control of germination) of horticultural and agricultural crops, and to develop effective and environment-friendly weed management strategies to increase the resilience of food supply chains to the climate crisis.
