Sequencing wild and cultivated cassava and related species reveals extensive interspecific hybridization and genetic diversity
TLDR
It is found that paleotetraploidy in cassava is shared with the related rubber tree Hevea, providing a resource for comparative studies and will inform future genome-enabled breeding efforts to improve this staple crop.
Interspecific hybridization and gene flow of ALS resistance in Amaranthus species
TLDR
It is verified that interspecific hybridization does occur between these two species, and even at a low rate, it could contribute to the rapid spread of ALS resistance in these species.
High-resolution mapping of resistance to cassava mosaic geminiviruses in cassava using genotyping-by-sequencing and its implications for breeding.
TLDR
A high-density single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) map of cassava was developed through genotyping-by-sequencing a bi-parental mapping population that segregates for the dominant monogenic resistance to CMD, suggesting that there is a single source of monogenic Resistance in the crop's genepool tracing back to a common ancestral clone.
A global alliance declaring war on cassava viruses in Africa
James Legg & Eklou Attiogbevi Somado & Ian Barker & Larry Beach & Hernan Ceballos & Willmer Cuellar & Warid Elkhoury & Dan Gerling & Jan Helsen & Clair Hershey & Andy Jarvis & Peter Kulakow & Lava
TRANSFERAL OF HERBICIDE RESISTANCE TRAITS FROM AMARANTHUS PALMERI TO AMARANTHUS RUDIS
TLDR
Offspring of hybrid plants, backcrossed to the susceptible parent, survived herbicide treatment, demonstrating that herbicide resistance was transferred between species.
Screening Plant Species for Growth on Weathered, Petroleum Hydrocarbon-Contaminated Sediments
ABSTRACT Rapid and cost-effective techniques are needed to select plant species and genotypes for use in phytoremediation, vegetative capping, or revegetation at hazardous waste sites. A greenhouse
The effect of plants on the degradation and toxicity of petroleum contaminants in soil: a field assessment.
TLDR
A field project located at the US Naval Base at Port Hueneme, California was designed to evaluate changes in contaminant concentrations and toxicity during phytoremediation and found the reduction of toxicity was affected more by contaminant aging than the establishment of plants.
Cassava Breeding: Current Status, Bottlenecks and the Potential of Biotechnology Tools
TLDR
The availability of more efficient genotyping approaches and the cassava genome sequence promise to increase the impact of biotechnology tools on cassava improvement, and efficient and reliable phenotyping of cassava remains a challenging goal to achieve in the near future.
Tracking crop varieties using genotyping-by-sequencing markers: a case study using cassava (Manihot esculenta Crantz)
TLDR
It is shown that genome-wide SNP markers from increasingly affordable GBS methods coupled with complementary cluster analysis is a powerful tool for fine-scale population structure analysis and variety identification.
