Efficient targeted mutagenesis in soybean by TALENs and CRISPR/Cas9.
Identification of single nucleotide polymorphisms and haplotypes associated with yield and yield components in soybean (Glycine max) landraces across multiple environments
The analysis revealed that abundant phenotypic and genetic diversity existed in the studied population, and the SNPs and haplotypes identified will help to further understand the genetic basis of soybean yield and its components, and may facilitate future high-yield breeding by marker-assisted selection in soybean.
Detection of quantitative trait loci for phosphorus deficiency tolerance at soybean seedling stage
The identified quantitative trait loci (QTL) will be useful to improve the stress resistance of soybean against a complex nutritional disorder caused by phosphorus deficiency and more QTLs were detected under low phosphorus condition and some QTLS were detected that specifically expressed under different phosphorus levels.
Floral Transcriptome Sequencing for SSR Marker Development and Linkage Map Construction in the Tea Plant (Camellia sinensis)
Both transcriptome information and the genetic map of C. sinensis presented here offer a valuable foundation for molecular biology investigations such as functional gene isolation, quantitative trait loci mapping, and marker-assisted selection breeding in this important species.
The Acid Phosphatase-Encoding Gene GmACP1 Contributes to Soybean Tolerance to Low-Phosphorus Stress
The discovery of the optimal haplotype of GmACP1 will now enable the accurate selection of soybeans with higher P efficiencies and improve the understanding of the molecular mechanisms underlying P efficiency in plants.
Perfluorocarbon nanoparticles enhance reactive oxygen levels and tumour growth inhibition in photodynamic therapy
Oxy-PDT is created by loading a photosensitizer into perfluorocarbon nanodroplets by demonstrated by the accelerated generation of 1O2 and elevated cytotoxicity and may enable the enhancement of existing clinical PDT and future PDT design.
Genome-wide identification and characterization of putative cytochrome P450 genes in the model legume Medicago truncatula
In this study, data mining methods were used, and 151 putative P450 genes in the model legume Medicago truncatula were identified, including 135 novel sequences, and it was found that most of the known P450 families in dicot species exist in M. trunCatula.

A high-throughput NJAU 355 K SoySNP array is developed and used to study the genetic variation patterns in 367 soybean accessions and a strong linkage disequilibrium region on chromosome 20 was found to be significantly correlated with seed weight in cultivated soybeans.
Fingerprinting 128 Chinese clonal tea cultivars using SSR markers provides new insights into their pedigree relationships
The results showed that the markers are highly polymorphic among the tested cultivars with an average allele number of 10.4 per locus and an average polymorphic information content of 0.704, valuable for tea cultivar identification and new breeding programs.
Characteristics of NH4+ and NO3− fluxes in tea (Camellia sinensis) roots measured by scanning ion-selective electrode technique
The results showed that under both single and mixed N forms, influx rates of NO3− were much lower than those of NH4+, suggesting a preference for NH4+ in tea, which may help advance hydroponic tea experiments and be used to develop efficient fertilization protocols for soil-grown tea in the future.
