Title: Gene impacting biomass formation and recalcitrance and methods of use

Abstract

The invention provides plants having improved biomass properties of increased biomass quantity and density, increased cellulose content and deceased lignin content and improved sugar release efficiency, methods of generating (genetically modifying) and/or selecting (natural variant collections) plants with such preferred attributes of cellulose, lignin and sugar release, and uses of such plants. The inventors have determined that the expression of the gene, Potri.001G375700 (belonging to IQD signaling protein family containing a canonical calmodulin-binding domain) and/or activity of Potri.001G375700, modulates cellulose, lignin synthesis, sugar release and growth in plants.
