Marker gene elimination was investigated in hybrid aspen (Populus tremula L. × Populus tremuloides Michx.) using the FLP/FRT recombination system. The construct contained the FLP recombinase under control of a heat inducible promoter, the antibiotic resistance gene nptII driven by the CaMV 35S promoter, and a promoterless uidA gene. The construct was(More)
Rapid improvements in the development of new sequencing technologies have led to the availability of genome sequences of more than 300 organisms today. Thanks to bioinformatic analyses, prediction of gene models and protein-coding transcripts has become feasible. Various reverse and forward genetics strategies have been followed to determine the functions(More)
