Segregation data were obtained for 1260 potato linkage group I-specific AFLP loci from a heterozygous diploid potato population. Analytical tools that identified potential typing errors and/or inconsistencies in the data and that assembled cosegregating markers into bins were applied. Bins contain multiple-marker data sets with an identical segregation(More)
To isolate genes of interest in plants, it is essential to construct bacterial artificial chromosome (BAC) libraries from specific genotypes. Construction and organisation of BAC libraries is laborious and costly, especially from organisms with large and complex genomes. In the present study, we developed the pooled BAC library strategy that allows rapid(More)
The activation of the nickel metalloenzyme urease is a complex process. In bacteria, several urease accessory proteins are essential for incorporation of nickel into the active centre of urease. Comparatively little is known about the activation process and the proteins involved in plants. We cloned five different cDNAs encoding isoforms of urease accessory(More)
To study genome evolution and diversity in barley (Hordeum vulgare), we have sequenced and compared more than 300 kb of sequence spanning the Rph7 leaf rust disease resistance gene in two barley cultivars. Colinearity was restricted to five genic and two intergenic regions representing <35% of the two sequences. In each interval separating the seven(More)
The two fungicides azoxystrobin and fenpropimorph are used against powdery mildew and rust diseases in wheat (Triticum aestivumL). Azoxystrobin, a strobilurin, inhibits fungal mitochondrial respiration and fenpropimorph, a morpholin, represses biosynthesis of ergosterol, the major sterol of fungal membranes. Although the fungitoxic activity of these(More)
Plant genomes, in particular grass genomes, evolve very rapidly. The closely related A genomes of diploid, tetraploid, and hexaploid wheat are derived from a common ancestor that lived <3 million years ago and represent a good model to study molecular mechanisms involved in such rapid evolution. We have sequenced and compared physical contigs at the Lr10(More)
An ultradense genetic linkage map with >10,000 AFLP loci was constructed from a heterozygous diploid potato population. To our knowledge, this is the densest meiotic recombination map ever constructed. A fast marker-ordering algorithm was used, based on the minimization of the total number of recombination events within a given marker order in combination(More)
Globally, urea is the most widely used nitrogen fertilizer and is made accessible to plants via the urease reaction. However, sequence information for the plant enzyme is scarce. A cDNA encoding urease from soybean (Glycine max) has been cloned and sequence information has been obtained for two alleles (11 and 19 kbp, respectively) of the potato (Solanum(More)
