Phylogeny and classification of Rosaceae
TLDR
Strong support for monophyly of groups corresponding closely to many previously recognized tribes and subfamilies is found, but no previous classification was entirely supported, and relationships among the strongly supported clades were weakly resolved and/or conflicted between some data sets.
Biology and management of the Japanese beetle.
TLDR
Advances in understanding host plant resistance, entomopathogens, and other biorational approaches may provide more options for integrated management of the Japanese beetle.
Insecticide Resistance in the Bed Bug: A Factor in the Pest’s Sudden Resurgence?
TLDR
Evaluations of populations from across the United States indicate that resistance to pyrethroid insecticides is already widespread, and without the development of new tactics for bed bug management, further escalation of this public health problem should be expected.
Multiple Models for Rosaceae Genomics[OA]
TLDR
This report serves as a synopsis of the resources and initiatives of the Rosaceae community, recent developments in Rosaceae genomics, and plans to apply newly accumulated knowledge and resources toward breeding and crop improvement.
Molecular phylogeny of Juglans (Juglandaceae): a biogeographic perspective
TLDR
The results suggest that the NCS sequence divergence observed within and between sections of Juglans is low and the addition of matK data only marginally improved resolution within Rhysocaryon, and the extant taxa may not hold the footprints to unravel the evolutionary history of the genus.
Characterization of 14 microsatellite markers for genetic analysis and cultivar identification of walnut
TLDR
SSR markers provide a more powerful and reliable system for the molecular characterization of walnut germplasm than those previously tested and should be able to uniquely characterize all walnut cultivars with the exception of budsports.
Phylogenetic Relationships Among Species of Fragaria (Rosaceae) Inferred from Non-coding Nuclear and Chloroplast DNA Sequences
Abstract Phylogenetic relationships among 43 accessions of Fragaria, representing 14 species, and one accession of the outgroup Potentilla fruticosa, were assessed using nucleotide sequence data from
Intersimple Sequence Repeat Markers for Fingerprinting and Determining Genetic Relationships of Walnut (Juglans regia) Cultivars
TLDR
Results can be attributed to a combination of the limitations of the ISSR method for inferring geneti c relationships, and the complex history of walnut cultivar development involving extensive exchange and breeding of germplasm from different geographic regions, on the other.
The chloroplastic protein translocation channel Toc75 and its paralog OEP80 represent two distinct protein families and are targeted to the chloroplastic outer envelope by different mechanisms.
TLDR
The results suggest that Toc75 and OEP80 diverged early in the evolution of plastids from their common ancestor with modern cyanobacteria.
