Genomic in situ hybridization (GISH) was used to study somatic chromosomes of parental and progeny plants (all 2n=2x=14) of the bigeneric hybrid between Gasteria lutzii and Aloe aristata (Aloaceae), which is partially fertile, a rare occurrence in plants. GISH successfully distinguished between the two parental genomes in the F1 hybrid and revealed numerous(More)

The use of green roofs is a growing practice worldwide, particularly in densely populated areas. In an attempt to find new methods for recycling crumb rubber, incorporation of crumb rubber into artificial medium for plant growth in green roofs and similar engineered environments has become an attractive option for the recycling of waste tires. Though this(More)
Chirality strongly influences many biological properties of materials, such as cell accumulation, enzymatic activity, and toxicity. In the past decade, it has been shown that quantum dots (QDs), fluorescent semiconductor nanoparticles with unique optical properties, can demonstrate optical activity due to chiral ligands bound on their surface.
