The B73 Maize Genome: Complexity, Diversity, and Dynamics
TLDR
The sequence of the maize genome reveals it to be the most complex genome known to date and the correlation of methylation-poor regions with Mu transposon insertions and recombination and how uneven gene losses between duplicated regions were involved in returning an ancient allotetraploid to a genetically diploid state is reported. Expand
Genome sequence and analysis of the tuber crop potato
TLDR
The potato genome sequence provides a platform for genetic improvement of this vital crop and predicts 39,031 protein-coding genes and presents evidence for at least two genome duplication events indicative of a palaeopolyploid origin. Expand
Gene amplification confers glyphosate resistance in Amaranthus palmeri
TLDR
This work investigated recently discovered glyphosate-resistant Amaranthus palmeri populations from Georgia, in comparison with normally sensitive populations, and revealed that EPSPS genes were present on every chromosome and, therefore, gene amplification was likely not caused by unequal chromosome crossing over. Expand
The draft genome of the transgenic tropical fruit tree papaya (Carica papaya Linnaeus)
TLDR
Papaya offers numerous advantages as a system for fruit-tree functional genomics, and this draft genome sequence provides the foundation for revealing the basis of Carica’s distinguishing morpho-physiological, medicinal and nutritional properties. Expand
Copy Number Variation of Multiple Genes at Rhg1 Mediates Nematode Resistance in Soybean
TLDR
Gene silencing showed that genes in a 31-kilobase segment at rhg1-b, encoding an amino acid transporter, an α-SNAP protein, and a WI12 (wound-inducible domain) protein, each contribute to resistance against soybean cyst nematode. Expand
Sequencing of a rice centromere uncovers active genes
TLDR
The results suggest that Cen8 may represent an intermediate stage in the evolution of centromres from genic regions, as in human neocentromeres, to fully mature centromeres that accumulate megabases of homogeneous satellite arrays. Expand
Gene RB cloned from Solanum bulbocastanum confers broad spectrum resistance to potato late blight
TLDR
The cloning of the major resistance gene RB in S. bulbocastanum is reported by using a map-based approach in combination with a long-range (LR)-PCR strategy, demonstrating that LR-PCR is a valuable approach to isolate genes that cannot be maintained in the bacterial artificial chromosome system. Expand
Centromeric Retroelements and Satellites Interact with Maize Kinetochore Protein CENH3
TLDR
Chromatin immunoprecipitation demonstrates that CentC and CRM interact specifically with CENH3, whereas knob repeats and Tekay retroelements do not. Expand
Functional Rice Centromeres Are Marked by a Satellite Repeat and a Centromere-Specific Retrotransposon Article, publication date, and citation information can be found at
TLDR
It is demonstrated that the centers of rice centromeres are occupied by a 155-bp satellite repeat, CentO, and a centromere-specific retrotransposon, CRR, and the CentO satellite may be a key DNA element for rice centRomere function. Expand
Recent advances in alien gene transfer in wheat
TLDR
The main achievements during the last ten years include the great expansion of the range of wide hybridization and development of new techniques for production and characterization of wheat-alien chromosome translocations. Expand
