Trends in quality in the analytical laboratory. II. Analytical method validation and quality assurance
This article provides a good, complete, up to-date collation of relevant information in the fields of analytical method validation and QA. Expand
Range wide versus local patterns of genetic diversity in hornbeam (Carpinus betulus L.)
A study based on AFLP markers was conducted to characterise the present population genetic structure of Carpinus betulus in Europe and to formulate guidelines for the use of this species inExpand
Four QTLs determine crown rust (Puccinia coronata f. sp. lolii) resistance in a perennial ryegrass (Lolium perenne) population
Crown rust resistance is an important selection criterion in ryegrass breeding. The disease, caused by the biotrophic fungus Puccinia coronata, causes yield losses and reduced quality. In this study,Expand
Natural hybridization between cultivated poplars and their wild relatives: evidence and consequences for native poplar populations
L'introgression et le flux de genes d'especes domestiquees vers les especes sauvages peuvent avoir un role determinant sur la dynamique des populations naturelles. Les objectifs de cette revue sontExpand
Evaluation of AFLP markers to reveal genetic diversity in Typha.
We investigated to what extent DNA-markers can assist species determination in the genus Typha. A set of AFLP markers was used to discriminate samples of the species Typha latifolia and TyphaExpand
Cloned plasmid DNA fragments as calibrators for controlling GMOs: different real-time duplex quantitative PCR methods
Analytical real-time PCR technology is a powerful tool for implementation of the GMO labeling regulations enforced in the EU. The quality of analytical measurement data obtained by quantitativeExpand
Influence of ensiling forages at different dry matters and silage additives on lipid metabolism and fatty acid composition
White and red clover silages have been shown to result in a higher transfer efficiency of polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA) to the milk or meat of ruminants compared to ryegrass silages. For redExpand
Support vector machine regression for the prediction of maize hybrid performance
Accurate prediction of the phenotypical performance of untested single-cross hybrids allows for a faster genetic progress of the breeding pool at a reduced cost. We propose a prediction method basedExpand
Occurrence of viable unreduced pollen in a Begonia collection
Polyploidy is widespread in plants and has played a major role in the evolution and diversification of the plant kingdom. Unreduced (2n) gametes are an interesting tool for polyploidisation and theExpand
Construction of a genetic linkage map with SSR, AFLP and morphological markers to locate QTLs controlling pathotype-specific powdery mildew resistance in diploid roses
Disease resistance is a sought-after trait in plant breeding programmes. One strategy to make resistance more durable is to increase the number of resistance genes, thereby increasing the number ofExpand
