Abstract

Proper development of plastids in embryo and seedling tissues is critical for plant development. During germination, plastids develop to perform many critical functions that are necessary to establish the seedling for further growth. A growing body of work has demonstrated that components of the plastid transcription and translation machinery must be present and functional to establish the organelle upon germination.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 6. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 12 February 2010.
All research outputs
#2,789,373
of 12,410,450 outputs
Outputs from BMC Plant Biology
#235
of 1,566 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#2,704,329
of 11,827,318 outputs
Outputs of similar age from BMC Plant Biology
#235
of 1,565 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 12,410,450 research outputs across all sources so far. Compared to these this one has done well and is in the 77th percentile: it's in the top 25% of all research outputs ever tracked by Altmetric.
So far Altmetric has tracked 1,566 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 3.2. This one has done well, scoring higher than 84% of its peers.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 11,827,318 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has done well, scoring higher than 77% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 1,565 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has done well, scoring higher than 84% of its contemporaries.
