Plants, iron, and systems models! Our new pub with Dr Terri Long

Solving the puzzle of Fe homeostasis by integrating molecular, mathematical, and societal models. Current Opinion in Plant Biology
Congrats to postdoc Dr Charles Hodgens for his new lead author publication in Current Opinion in Plant Biology! In this paper, we outline recent findings in the area of iron homeostasis and highlight the complexity of the multiscale regulatory events underlying Fe stress responses. We describe briefly how known and hypothesized regulatory mechanisms can be integrated into formal models whose validity can be explored via simulation-based inference — even in the absence of abundant quantitative data. Finally, we discuss how the interdisciplinary conversations that help drive this kind of work can be fostered through inclusive scientific teams.
