Extensive mapping efforts are currently underway for the establishment of comparative genomics between the model plant, Arabidopsis thaliana and various Brassica species. Most of these studies have(More)
Male-sterile lines were generated in oilseed mustard (Brassica juncea) with a cytotoxic gene (barnase) in conjunction with either of two tapetum-specific promoters, TA29 and A9. Several(More)
We report in this study, strategies for enhancing and extending tissue-specific expression of a restorer gene (barstar) and their use in the development of improved fertility restorer lines for(More)
We report in this study, an improved method for identifying male sterile–restorer combinations using the barnase–barstar system of pollination control for heterosis breeding in crop plants, as an(More)
Oil content and oil quality fractions (viz., oleic, linoleic and linolenic acid) are strongly influenced by the erucic acid pathway in oilseed Brassicas. Low levels of erucic acid in seed oil(More)
Root-knot nematodes (RKNs, Meloidogyne incognita) are economically important endoparasites with a wide host range. We used a comprehensive transcriptomic approach to investigate the expression of(More)
We have earlier reported the deployment of an effective pollination control system for hybrid seed production in Brassica juncea based on use of the barnase-barstar system. The current study analyses(More)
