Lilium pumilum DC. is a valuable species not only for its showy flowers but also for its edible and medicinal values. As one of the distribution areas of L. pumilum, Qinghai–Tibet plateau has unique environmental features which have high impact on the evolution of the species. No population genetic studies have been done for L. pumilum so far. To provide(More)
In Northwest China, aridification and desert expansion play significant roles in promoting desert plant diversification and speciation. However, to date, little is known about the effects of the desert barrier on the population structure of montane, non-desert species in the area. In this study, we sequenced chloroplast DNA regions (trnL-trnF and trnS-trnG)(More)
Fusarium oxysporum is a major problem in the production of tulip bulbs. Breeding for resistant cultivars through a conventional approach is a slow process due to the long life cycle of tulip. Until now, marker-assisted selection (MAS) has been hampered by the large genome size and the absence of a genetic map. This study is aimed at construction of the(More)
Sample preparation for confocal microscopy typically involves fixing and staining, followed by clearing and mounting. Clearing involves treatment with solvent to dissolve lipids and other structures that cause light scattering and reduce the ability to image through thick specimens. Mounting involves transfer of the specimen into a medium which matches the(More)
