The analysis of the first plant genomes provided unexpected evidence for genome duplication events in species that had previously been considered as true diploids on the basis of their genetics. These polyploidization events may have had important consequences in plant evolution, in particular for species radiation and adaptation and for the modulation of(More)
The construction of a dense genetic map for Vitis vinifera and its anchoring to a BAC-based physical map is described: it includes 994 loci mapped onto 19 linkage groups, corresponding to the basic chromosome number of Vitis. Spanning 1245 cM with an average distance of 1.3 cM between adjacent markers, the map was generated from the segregation of 483(More)

Most of the grapevine (Vitis vinifera L.) cultivars grown today are those selected centuries ago, even though grapevine is one of the most important fruit crops in the world. Grapevine has therefore not benefited from the advances in modern plant breeding nor more recently from those in molecular genetics and genomics: genes controlling important agronomic(More)
INTRODUCTION Transcranial color Doppler sonography permits the accurate assessment of intracranial arteries. The latest Doppler units, using the color and power techniques, can show even very small flow volumes (1 x 1 mm). Low frequency (2-2.5 MHz) and very focused transducers are used in transcranial color Doppler. The skull is a very strong barrier for(More)
INTRODUCTION MRI is a very accurate technique to study the elbow joint, tendon, ligament and chondral structures. In the last years elbow disorders were described by several MR investigators, while we studied MR capabilities in depicting normal elbow anatomy. This investigation might permit the correct differentiation of normal from abnormal MR patterns. (More)
The number of polymorphisms identified with next-generation sequencing approaches depends directly on the sequencing depth and therefore on the experimental cost. Although higher levels of depth ensure more sensitive and more specific SNP calls, economic constraints limit the increase of depth for whole-genome resequencing (WGS). For this reason, capture(More)
