Aerobic and anaerobic de-epoxydation of mycotoxin deoxynivalenol by bacteria originating from agricultural soil
One hundred and fifty soil samples collected from different crop fields in southern Ontario, Canada were screened to obtain microorganisms capable of transforming deoxynivalenol (DON) to de-epoxy DONExpand

Characterization of seed coat post harvest darkening in common bean (Phaseolus vulgaris L.)
Seed coat post harvest darkening (PHD) represents a problem for producers and consumers of several market classes of dry bean. There are three PHD phenotypes: (1) non-darkening (ND), (2) slowExpand

Development of candidate gene markers associated to common bacterial blight resistance in common bean
Common bacterial blight (CBB), caused by Xanthomonas axonopodis pv. phaseoli (Xap), is a major yield-limiting factor of common bean (Phaseolus vulgaris L.) production around the world. Two majorExpand

Brassica napus Rop GTPases and their expression in microspore cultures
Androgenesis in plants involves a shift in development that causes cultured microspore cells to form embryos rather than continue to develop pollen. In Brassica napus microspore culture a mild heatExpand

Increased expression of a cGMP-dependent protein kinase in rotation-adapted western corn rootworm (Diabrotica virgifera virgifera L.).
A new 'variant' behavior in western corn rootworm (WCR) has resulted in egg-laying into non-cornfields, compared to 'normal' deposition of eggs in cornfields, allowing these insects to circumventExpand

Molecular basis of seed lipoxygenase null traits in soybean line OX948
The poor stability and off-flavors of soybean oil and protein products can be reduced by eliminating lipoxygenases from soybean seed. Mature seeds of OX948, a lipoxygenase triple null mutant line, doExpand

Economics of genomic selection: the role of prediction accuracy and relative genotyping costs
Abstract Studies that incorporate economic aspects of plant breeding into the evaluation of selection strategies tend to focus on a specific example. This makes it difficult to generalize theExpand
