Rice scientists unveil 'nanoegg'
...' for light to grab hold of," Nordlander said. "In symmetric
nanoshells, most of the light energy is lost to these 'dark modes.' With symmetry breaking, we are able to make these dark modes bright by providing dipole moments for more of the incoming light." ...

Scientists find microRNAs regulate plant development
...particularly struck by the unusual quadrilaterally symmetric
seedlings we uncovered in our study. This result implies that the Arabidopsis embryo relies on microRNA restriction of ARF17 activity to achieve normal bilateral symmetry." A second report focuses on the function of the protein ARGONAUTE1 (AGO1), a ...
