The genome of potato, a major global food crop, was recently sequenced. The work presented here details the integration of the potato reference genome (DM) with a new sequence-tagged site marker-based linkage map and other physical and genetic maps of potato and the closely related species tomato. Primary anchoring of the DM genome assembly was accomplished(More)
A genotyping by sequencing (GbS) approach is reported in blackcurrant (Ribes nigrum L.) using a de novo read assembly method developed because of the current absence of a reference genome sequence for this species. A new approach to single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) genotype calling is described, where individual genotypes for a large number of SNPs were(More)
Phytohormones are involved in diverse aspects of plant life including the regulation of plant growth, development and reproduction, as well as governing biotic and abiotic stress responses. We have generated a comprehensive transcriptional reference map of the early potato responses to exogenous application of the defence hormones abscisic acid,(More)
The genetic disorder known as 'crumbly' fruit is becoming a serious problem in the European raspberry industry. The study set out to examine the crumbly phenotype in a red raspberry mapping population under two environments (field and polytunnel) across six seasons in an effort to understand variability of the syndrome and to examine whether genetic factors(More)
Combinations of histones carrying different covalent modifications are a major component of epigenetic variation. We have mapped nine modified histones in the barley seedling epigenome by chromatin immunoprecipitation next-generation sequencing (ChIP-seq). The chromosomal distributions of the modifications group them into four different classes, and members(More)
The use of artiicial neural networks with geographical data is often constrained by the very small number of training data points which can be obtained. Using multi-spectral and parametric data from the Nullica state forest in NSW, Australia, we look at addition of noise, and resampling, as methods of increasing the number and quality of the training set to(More)
