Abstract
The plant root is a crucial organ for adaptation to dynamic environments, but to date the degree of functional conservation of root developmental programs has remained unknown. A recent report by Kajala et al. sheds light on the cross-species conservation and repurposing of root gene functions in a manner pertinent to attempts to ensure future yield stability.
