The past year has seen significant advances in the biochemical, genetic and molecular dissection of the light signal transduction and developmental pathways that lead to photoregulated gene expression in higher plants. A major part of recent research has focused on the assignment of biological functions to the various photoreceptors, the genetic dissection of the photoreceptor action pathways, and the identification of the cis-acting sequences and trans-acting factors that regulate the downstream light-regulated genes.
