Jin et al. (pages 1369-1382) developed a highly efficient system for protein expression in bamboo. This significant advancement will contribute to the study of genotypephenotype associations in bamboo. The cover image shows the collection of juice obtained by infecting tobacco with BaMV, which is subsequently used for inoculating Moso bamboo. The presence of red pigment and fluorescence in the leaves, stems, and roots of bamboo represents the expression of RUBY and EGFP respectively.
