The use of macroalgal ABs on crop plants can generate multiple benefits with reported effects including enhanced rooting, higher crop and fruit yields, freezing, drought and salt tolerance, enhanced photosynthetic activity and resistance to fungi, bacteria and virus.
RNAi Effector Diversity in Nematodes
While RNA interference (RNAi) has been deployed to facilitate gene function studies in diverse helminths, parasitic nematodes appear variably susceptible. To test if this is due to inter-species…
A molecular identification key for economically important thrips species (Thysanoptera: Thripidae) using direct sequencing and a PCR‐RFLP‐based approach
This study has shown that the use of genetic markers represents a valuable alternative for situations, such as epidemiological research, in which correct identification with classical morphological methods is either very difficult and time consuming or virtually impossible.
Three divergent rDNA clusters predate the species divergence in Quercus petraea (Matt.) Liebl. and Quercus robur L.
It is proposed that past hybridization events, combined with nucleolar dominance, were the evolutionary processes underlying the contemporary rDNA variability in Q. petraea and Q. robur.

In attempts to evaluate flp function in G. pallida, it is discovered that, unlike in C. elegans, these genes are readily susceptible to RNAi, paving the way for the investigation of RNAi‐mediated flp gene silencing as a novel plant parasite control strategy.
High nuclear genetic diversity, high levels of outcrossing and low differentiation among remnant populations of Quercus petraea at the margin of its range in Ireland.
It is proposed that native Q. petraea populations in Ireland share a common phylogeographic history and that the present genetic structure does not reflect founder effects.
The rDNA Internal Transcribed Spacer Region as a Taxonomic Marker for Nematodes.
IT heterogeneity in individuals and populations was identified in several nematode taxa and PCR-RFLP of ITS1 is advocated as a method of taxonomic analysis in genera such as Helicotylenchus that contain numerous species with few diagnostic morphological characteristics.
Short interfering RNA-mediated knockdown of drosha and pasha in undifferentiated Meloidogyne incognita eggs leads to irregular growth and embryonic lethality.
Short interfering RNA-mediated gene silencing in Globodera pallida and Meloidogyne incognita infective stage juveniles.
Taxonomy: Species status of hybridizing oaks
Microsatellite DNA, a highly informative genetic marker, is used to show that Q. robur and Q. petraea are discrete taxonomic units despite this intensive hybridization of these two oak tree species.
