The genetic link between calcium signaling and RNA interference (RNAi) has remained undiscovered until now. A new study shows that wound-triggered calcium flux acts as an initial messenger for priming RNAi for its role in plant antiviral defense. This paves the way to investigate plant development and response to (a)biotic stresses.
