Broadly sampled multigene trees of eukaryotes
TLDR
The analytical approach substantiates the power of increased taxon sampling in placing diverse eukaryotic lineages within well-supported clades and indicates that the six supergroup hypothesis of higher-level eucaryotic classification is likely premature.
Establishment of endolithic populations of extremophilic Cyanidiales (Rhodophyta)
TLDR
This study conducted an environmental PCR survey of another extreme environment in Tuscany, Italy and contrasted Cyanidiales population structure at endolithic and interlithic habitats in Naples and TuscANY to provide important data regarding population structure in extreme endolithic environments and insights into how Cyanidials may be established in and adapt to these hostile environments.
EFFECTS OF NUTRIENT SOLUTION EC, PLANT MICROCLIMATE AND CULTIVARS ON FRUIT QUALITY AND YIELD OF HYDROPONIC TOMATOES (LYCOPERSICON ESCULENTUM)
Four cultivars (Blitz, Mariachi, Quest and Rapsodie) of tomato were grown hydroponically on rockwool in two microclimates (east and west) inside the greenhouse (Tucson, AZ) under two nutrient
Unexpected dynamic gene family evolution in algal actins.
TLDR
The results paint a novel picture of actin gene evolution in algae showing it to be a remarkably dynamic system with duplication, homogenization, and potential functional diversification occurring independently in distantly related lineages.
Growth, yield and shelf-life of isopentenyltransferase (ipt)-gene transformed broccoli.
TLDR
Three selfed T5 lines of ipt transformed broccoli have been obtained through selection for single copy insertion, acceptable horticultural traits and transgene ipt activity, and these three transgenic inbred lines were evaluated in the field during 2004-2007 to determine their growth, yield and shelf-life after harvest.
