The draft genome of Tibetan hulless barley reveals adaptive patterns to the high stressful Tibetan Plateau
Significance The draft genome of Tibetan hulless barley provides a robust framework to better understand Poaceae evolution and a substantial basis for functional genomics of crop species with a largeExpand
Origin and evolution of qingke barley in Tibet
It is shown that contemporary qingke is derived from eastern domesticated barley and it is introduced to southern Tibet most likely via north Pakistan, India, and Nepal between 4,500 and 3,500 years ago. Expand
Agriculture in central Tibet: an assessment of climate, farming systems, and strategies to boost production.
It is suggested that research and extension in the areas of crop nutrition, weed control, irrigation, seeding technology, and crop varieties should enable significant increases in grain yield. Expand
Transcriptome Assembly and Analysis of Tibetan Hulless Barley (Hordeum vulgare L. var. nudum) Developing Grains, with Emphasis on Quality Properties
The characterization of genes encoding storage proteins and enzymes of starch synthesis and (1–3;1–4)-β-D-glucan synthesis provided an overview of changes in gene expression associated with grain nutrition and health properties. Expand
A Single Nucleotide Polymorphism of Nud Converts the Caryopsis Type of Barley (Hordeum Vulgare L.)
Evidence of a new origin of the naked phenotype of domesticated barley in Tibet is provided, and in silico prediction of functionally conserved sites and 3D structures showed that the amino acid substitution caused by SNP T643A may lead to a dramatic structural alteration of NUD that may result in loss of function.

Understanding Land Use, Livelihoods, and Health Transitions among Tibetan Nomads: A Case from Gangga Township, Dingri County, Tibetan Autonomous Region of China
Drawing on transdisciplinary, preliminary field work in Gangga Township of Dingri County in the foothills of Mt. Everest, pertinent linkages between land use and health, and spatial and temporal mismatch of livelihoods and health care services, in the transition to sedentary village life are identified. Expand
Genetic relationship between lodging and lodging components in barley (Hordeum vulgare) based on unconditional and conditional quantitative trait locus analyses.
The conditional QTL mapping method can be used to evaluate possible genetic relationships between LD and LDC while efficiently and precisely determining counteracting QTL, which will help in understanding the genetic basis of LD in barley. Expand
A survey of the mineral status of livestock in the Tibet Autonomous Region of China
Foreword Livestock production is the predominant industry in Tibet Autonomous Region of China with significant numbers of yaks, cattle, horses, sheep and goats raised under various productionExpand
