Range wide versus local patterns of genetic diversity in hornbeam (Carpinus betulus L.)
TLDR
Within-population gene diversity, a new rarefaction-based measure of number of genotypes (‘band richness’) and percentage of polymorphic loci are lower north of major mountain chains, suggesting that the mountain ranges formed a second bottleneck for the hornbeam during postglacial recolonisation.
Natural hybridization between cultivated poplars and their wild relatives: evidence and consequences for native poplar populations
TLDR
Dans un premier temps, nous preciserons concepts et terminologie avant de presenter des exemples d'hybridations naturelles ou d'origine anthropogenique entre especes autochtones and introduites.
Four QTLs determine crown rust (Puccinia coronata f. sp. lolii) resistance in a perennial ryegrass (Lolium perenne) population
TLDR
The identified markers linked to crown rust resistance have the potential for use in marker-assisted breeding and are of major importance for understanding the molecular background of crown Rust resistance in ryegrasses.
Cloned plasmid DNA fragments as calibrators for controlling GMOs: different real-time duplex quantitative PCR methods
TLDR
It is demonstrated that plasmid DNA molecules containing either one or multiple target sequences form perfect alternative calibrators for GMO quantification and are especially suitable for duplex PCR reactions.
Support vector machine regression for the prediction of maize hybrid performance
TLDR
Field trial data from the grain maize breeding programme of the private company RAGT R2n are used and results indicate that both methods match each other’s prediction accuracies for several combinations of marker types and traits.
Progress in plant protoplast research
TLDR
The study of reactive oxygen species effects and DNA (de)condensation, along with thorough phytohormone monitoring, are in this review the most promising research topics in the further strive for rationalization of protoplast regeneration.
Application of embryo rescue after interspecific crosses in the genus Rhododendron
TLDR
The objective of this work was to overcome spontaneous abortion and lack of endosperm formation and to increase germination rates by establishing an embryo rescue protocol and the optimal germination medium for immature Rhododendron seeds was a basal medium supplemented with 145 μM GA3.
