Abstract

As a bryophyte and model plant, the moss Physcomitrium (Physcomitrella) patens (P. patens) is particularly well adapted to hormone evolution studies. Gene targeting through homologous recombination or CRISPR-Cas9 system, genome sequencing, and numerous transcriptomic datasets has allowed for molecular genetics studies and much progress in Evo-Devo knowledge. As to strigolactones, like for other hormones, both phenotypical and transcriptional responses can be studied, in both WT and mutant plants. However, as in any plant species, medium- to large-scale phenotype characterization is necessary, owing to the general high phenotypic variability. Therefore, many biological replicates are required. This may translate to large amount of the investigated compounds, particularly expensive (or difficult to synthesize) in the case of strigolactones. These issues prompted us to improve existing methods to limit the use of scarce/expensive compounds, as well as to simplify subsequent measures/sampling of P. patens. We hence scaled up well-tried experiments, in order to increment the number of tested genotypes in one given experiment. In this chapter, we will describe three methods we set up to study the response to strigolactones and related compounds in P. patens.
