Verticillium longisporum is a major threat to production of oilseed rape (Brassica napus) in Europe. The aim of the study was to develop new markers and obtain insights into putative mechanisms and pathways involved in the resistance reaction. A genetic approach was used to identify quantitative trait loci (QTL) for V. longisporum resistance and metabolic(More)
BACKGROUND Serial analysis of gene expression (LongSAGE) was applied for gene expression profiling in seeds of oilseed rape (Brassica napus ssp. napus). The usefulness of this technique for detailed expression profiling in a non-model organism was demonstrated for the highly complex, neither fully sequenced nor annotated genome of B. napus by applying a(More)
The Brassica napus (oilseed rape) accession 1012-98 shows a disturbed germination phenotype that was thought to be associated with its lack of testa pigmentation and thin seed coat. Here, we demonstrate that the disturbed germination and seedling development are actually due to independent mutations that disrupt the balance of hormone metabolites and their(More)
