New microsatellites markers [simple sequence repeat (SSR)] have been isolated from rose and integrated into an existing amplified fragment-length polymorphism genetic map. This new map was used to identify quantitative trait locus (QTL) controlling date of flowering and number of petals. From a rose bud expressed sequence tag (EST) database of 2,556(More)
A tetraploid F2 progeny segregating for resistance to black spot, growth habit, and absence of prickles on the stem and petioles was used to construct genetic linkage maps of rose. The F1 of the progeny, 90–69, was created by crossing a black spot-resistant amphidiploid, 86–7, with a susceptible tetraploid, 82–1134. The F1 was open-pollinated to obtain 115(More)
The purpose of this study was to identify quantitative trait loci (QTLs) for salt tolerance (ST) during vegetative growth (VG) in tomato by distributional extreme analysis and compare them with the QTLs previously identified for this trait. A BC1 population (N = 792) of a cross between a moderately salt-sensitive Lycopersicon esculentum Mill. breeding line(More)
Most commercial cultivars of tomato, Lycopersicon esculentum Mill., are susceptible to early blight (EB), a devastating fungal (Alternaria solani Sorauer) disease of tomato in the U.S. and elsewhere in the world. Currently, sanitation, long crop rotation, and routine application of fungicides are the most common disease control measures. Although no source(More)
 Bermudagrasses (Cynodon spp.) are major turfgrasses for home lawns, public parks, golf courses and sport fields, and are widely adapted to tropical and warmer temperate climates. Morphological and physiological characteristics are not sufficient to differentiate some bermudagrass genotypes because the differences between them are often subtle and subject(More)
A BC1 population (N = 1000) of an F1 hybrid between a stress-sensitive Lycopersicon esculentum breeding line (NC84173; maternal and recurrent parent) and a germination stress-tolerant Lycopersicon pimpinellifolium accession (LA722) was evaluated for seed germination rate under drought stress (DS) (14% w/v polyethyleneglycol-8000, water potential(More)
Damask roses are grown in several European and Asiatic countries for rose oil production. Twenty-six oil-bearing Rosa damascena Mill. accessions and 13 garden Damask roses were assayed by molecular markers. Microsatellite genotyping demonstrated that R. damascena Mill. accessions from Bulgaria, Iran, and India and old European Damask rose varieties possess(More)
A molecular linkage map of tomato was constructed based on a BC1 population (N = 145) of a cross between Lycopersicon esculentum Mill. line NC84173 (maternal and recurrent parent) and Lycopersicon hirsutum Humb. and Bonpl. accession PI126445. NC84173 is an advanced breeding line that is resistant to several tomato diseases, not including early blight (EB)(More)
This study examined the impacts of elevated CO2 or O3 on indole-3-acetic acid (IAA) content, activities of IAA oxidase (IAAO) and peroxidase (POD) in Ginkgo biloba leaves. Plants grown in open-top chambers were exposed to ambient atmosphere (control; C), elevated CO2 and elevated O3 from 1 June to 30 September. An increase in IAA content and decrease in(More)
Mass spectrometry (MS) method has been one of the most popular subjects in the field of microbial identification by the reason of its rapid identification and variety application. However, the biomarker of Methicillin-resistant and methicillin-susceptible Staphylococcus aureus is out of measuring range by mass spectrometer, which leads to hard to classify(More)
