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 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 x 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)
An expression Quantitative Trait Locus or eQTL is a chromosomal region that accounts for a proportion of the variation in abundance of a mRNA transcript observed between individuals in a genetic mapping population. A single gene can have one or multiple eQTLs. Large scale mRNA profiling technologies advanced genome-wide eQTL mapping in a diverse range of(More)
Allelic combinations of the Vrn-H1, Vrn-H2, Vrn-H3, Ppd-H1, and Ppd-H2 genes were investigated with allele-specific molecular markers in 91 spring-barley cultivars recommended for use in Russia and Belarus. In a field experiment under the conditions of Northwest Russia, heading date evaluation was performed in these cultivars. Barley varieties with the(More)
BACKGROUND Affymetrix high density oligonucleotide expression arrays are widely used across all fields of biological research for measuring genome-wide gene expression. An important step in processing oligonucleotide microarray data is to produce a single value for the gene expression level of an RNA transcript using one of a growing number of statistical(More)
Non-synonymous coding mutations in a gene change the resulting protein, no matter where it is expressed, but the effects of cis-regulatory mutations could be spatially or temporally limited - a phenomenon termed limited pleiotropy. Here, we report the genome-wide occurrence of limited pleiotropy of cis-regulatory mutations in barley (Hordeum vulgare L.)(More)
BACKGROUND A typical genetical genomics experiment results in four separate data sets; genotype, gene expression, higher-order phenotypic data and metadata that describe the protocols, processing and the array platform. Used in concert, these data sets provide the opportunity to perform genetic analysis at a systems level. Their predictive power is largely(More)
An alternative to complete genome sequencing is development and analysis of ESTs-fragments of transcribed coding DNA sequences. The EST collections also enhanced the development of cDNA microarray technologies, which make possible assessing the transcription levels of several thousand genes in a studied tissue of an organism in the same experiment. This(More)
It is well known that Affymetrix microarrays are widely used to predict genome-wide gene expression and genome-wide genetic polymorphisms from RNA and genomic DNA hybridization experiments, respectively. It has recently been proposed to integrate the two predictions by use of RNA microarray data only. Although the ability to detect single feature(More)
The history of Norway spruce distribution in the East European Plain is discussed with regard to the results of the allele diversity survey of the mitochondrial Nad1 gene, which is maternally inherited, and the chloroplast trnT-trnF region, which is paternally inherited in spruce. The polymorphism of organelle DNAs was examined in 221 genotypes from 28(More)
