Extensive DNA elimination via a DNA breakage and rejoining process occurs during macronuclear development in the hypotrich ciliate Euplotes crassus. The excision process involves the removal of short, unique segments of DNA (internal eliminated sequences; IESs) and at least two highly repetitive families of transposon-like elements (Tec elements).

In weed species, resistance to herbicides inhibiting acetohydroxyacid synthase (AHAS) is often conferred by genetic mutations at one of six codons in the AHAS gene. These mutations provide plants with various levels of resistance to different chemical classes of AHAS inhibitors. Five green foxtail [Setaria viridis (L.) Beauv.] populations were reported in(More)
