The recent development of Affymetrix chips designed from assembled EST sequences has spawned considerable interest in identifying single-feature polymorphisms (SFPs) from transcriptome data. SFPs are valuable genetic markers that potentially offer a physical link to the structural genes themselves. However, most current SFP prediction methodologies were(More)
Transcript abundance from cRNA hybridizations to Affymetrix microarrays can be used for simultaneous marker development and genome-wide gene expression quantitative trait locus (eQTL) analysis of crops. We have previously shown that it is easily possible to use Affymetrix expression arrays to profile individuals from a segregating population to accurately(More)
We developed an approach for relating differences in gene expression to the phenotypic variation of a trait of interest. This allows the identification of candidate genes for traits that display quantitative variation. To validate the principle, gene expression was monitored on a cDNA array with 1400 ESTs to identify genes involved in the variation of the(More)
A barley cDNA macroarray comprising 1,440 unique genes was used to analyze the spatial and temporal patterns of gene expression in embryo, scutellum and endosperm tissue during different stages of germination. Among the set of expressed genes, 69 displayed the highest mRNA level in endosperm tissue, 58 were up-regulated in both embryo and scutellum, 11 were(More)
The Vavilov Institute of Plant Industry (VIR) keeps a living seed collection of about 700 accessions of landraces and local cultivars of common vetch (Vicia sativa L.) that have been collected over a period of more than 50 years throughout the former USSR. Much of the material is available nowhere else. The collection of this economically important fodder(More)
Morphological differences and ecogeographical characteristics of five species from Vicia sativa agg. in the area of former USSR were investigated. The key to V. sativa agg. species and subspecies as well as maps of their areals are presented. A complementary study of polymorphism at the phenotypical level of 58 local weedy and wild populations from(More)
We report the results of two methods of DNA analysis to elucidate phylogenetic relationships among 29 Vicia subgen. Vicia species in comparison with two species of subgenus Vicilla sect. Vicilla. The methods employed were RAPD analysis of total genomic DNA and PCR-RFLP analysis of five chloroplast genes, rbcL, rpoB, 16S, psaA and trnK. The results of each(More)
To provide resources for barley genomics, 110,981 expressed sequence tags (ESTs) were generated from 22 cDNA libraries representing tissues at various developmental stages. This EST collection corresponds to approximately one-third of the 380,000 publicly available barley ESTs. Clustering and assembly resulted in 14,151 tentative consensi (TCs) and 11 073(More)
Using a cDNA array-based functional genomics approach in barley, several candidate genes for malting quality including serine carboxypeptidase I (Cxp1) were previously identified (Potokina et al. in Mol Breed 14:153, 2004). The gene was mapped as a single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) marker on chromosome 3H using the Steptoe (feeding grade) × Morex(More)
We previously mapped mRNA transcript abundance traits (expression-QTL or eQTL) using the Barley1 Affymetrix array and ‘whole plant’ tissue from 139 progeny of the Steptoe × Morex (St/Mx) reference barley mapping population. Of the 22,840 probesets (genes) on the array, 15,987 reported transcript abundance signals that were suitable for eQTL analysis, and(More)
