In this study, we tested the hypothesis that the lower rate of high EE (hostility and(More)

Gametes have the unique potential to enter the sporophytic pathway, called androgenesis. The plants produced are usually haploid and recombinant due to the preceding meiosis and they can double their chromosome number to form doubled haploids, which are completely homozygous. Availability of the doubled haploids facilitates mapping the genes of(More)
PURPOSE To validate a school-based amblyopia screening program model by comparing its outcomes to those of a state-of-the-art conventional ophthalmic clinic examination in a kindergarten population of children between the ages of 4 and 5 years. METHODS An amblyopia screening protocol, which consisted of visual acuity measurement using Lea charts, ocular(More)
