Currently, the only genetic resistance against root-knot nematodes in the cultivated tomato Solanum lycopersicum (Lycopersicon esculentum) is due to the gene Mi-1. Another resistance gene, Mi-3, identified in the related wild species Solanum peruvianum (Lycopersicon peruvianum) confers resistance to nematodes that are virulent on tomato lines that carry(More)
Rare cell subtypes can profoundly impact the course of human health and disease, yet their presence within a sample is often missed with bulk molecular analysis. Single-cell analysis tools such as FACS, FISH-FC and single-cell barcode-based sequencing can investigate cellular heterogeneity; however, they have significant limitations that impede their(More)
A selection of carbides (TiC, NbC, TaC, WC and SiC) have been studied using density functional theory. Their calculated adsorption characteristics towards Pt overlayers are presented with a view to the use of the carbides as core-shell components. WC hcp and SiC are observed to support Pt overlayers on all surfaces making them promising candidates for full(More)
