Dense genetic linkage maps of three Populus species (Populus deltoides, P. nigra and P. trichocarpa) based on AFLP and microsatellite markers.
Populus deltoides, P. nigra, and P. trichocarpa are the most important species for poplar breeding programs worldwide. In addition, Populus has become a model for fundamental research on trees.Expand

Superroot, a recessive mutation in Arabidopsis, confers auxin overproduction.
We have isolated seven allelic recessive Arabidopsis mutants, designated superroot (sur1-1 to sur1-7), displaying several abnormalities reminiscent of auxin effects. These characteristics includeExpand

Cross-species transferability and mapping of genomic and cDNA SSRs in pines
Two unigene datasets of Pinus taeda and Pinus pinaster were screened to detect di-, tri- and tetranucleotide repeated motifs using the SSRIT script. A total of 419 simple sequence repeats (SSRs) wereExpand

Analysis of DNA methylation in Arabidopsis thaliana based on methylation-sensitive AFLP markers
Abstract. AFLP analysis using restriction enzyme isoschizomers that differ in their sensitivity to methylation of their recognition sites has been used to analyse the methylation state of anonymousExpand

"Contrasting patterns of selection at Pinus pinaster Ait. Drought stress candidate genes as revealed by genetic differentiation analyses".
The importance of natural selection for shaping adaptive trait differentiation among natural populations of allogamous tree species has long been recognized. Determining the molecular basis of localExpand

A genetic analysis of seed and berry weight in grapevine.
Fruit size and seedlessness are highly relevant traits in many fruit crop species, and both are primary targets of breeding programs for table grapes. In this work we performed a quantitative geneticExpand

Intraspecific and interspecific genetic and phylogenetic relationships in the genus Populus based on AFLP markers
Although Populus has become the model genus for molecular genetics and genomics research on forest trees, genetic and phylogenetic relationships within this genus have not yet been comprehensivelyExpand

Epigenetic regulation of adaptive responses of forest tree species to the environment
Epigenetic variation is likely to contribute to the phenotypic plasticity and adaptative capacity of plant species, and may be especially important for long-lived organisms with complex life cycles,Expand

Application of AFLPs to the characterization of grapevine Vitis vinifera L. genetic resources. A case study with accessions from Rioja (Spain)
Abstract AFLPs were used to characterize 67 different grapevine accessions from a collection of D.O.Ca. Rioja in Spain. A correct selection of primers and selective nucleotides allowed us to maximizeExpand

In Vitro vs In Silico Detected SNPs for the Development of a Genotyping Array: What Can We Learn from a Non-Model Species?
Background There is considerable interest in the high-throughput discovery and genotyping of single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) to accelerate genetic mapping and enable association studies. ThisExpand
