The tomato genome sequence provides insights into fleshy fruit evolution
Tomato (Solanum lycopersicum) is a major crop plant and a model system for fruit development. Solanum is one of the largest angiosperm genera and includes annual and perennial plants from diverseExpand
High-throughput SNP discovery and genotyping in durum wheat (Triticum durum Desf.)
We describe the application of complexity reduction of polymorphic sequences (CRoPS®) technology for the discovery of SNP markers in tetraploid durum wheat (Triticum durum Desf.). A next-generationExpand
Available exsitu germplasm of the potential rubber crop Taraxacum koksaghyz belongs to a poor rubber producer, T. brevicorniculatum (Compositae–Crepidinae)
Cultivation of the Russian dandelion (Taraxacum koksaghyz) as a rubber producing crop was abandoned more than 50 years ago. Recently the interest in the Russian dandelion has renewed, due to theExpand

We reviewed 144 differential white blood cell counts from 23 patients with primary biliary cirrhosis (PBC, 21 females, 2 males) for occurrence of eosinophilia. Over an average observation time of 43Expand
COX-2 expression in rectal cancer is of prognostic significance in patients receiving preoperative radiotherapy
To determine the impact of cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) expression on clinical behavior in irradiated and non-irradiated rectal carcinomas. Tumor samples were collected from 1231 patients of the DutchExpand
Cancer Caspase-3 Activity Predicts Local Recurrence in Rectal
Purpose: Radiotherapy followedby totalmesorectal excision surgery has been shown to significantly reduce local recurrence rates in rectal cancer patients. Radiotherapy, however, is associatedExpand
