The Persian walnut (Juglans regia L.), a diploid species native to the mountainous regions of Central Asia, is the major walnut species cultivated for nut production and is one of the most widespread tree nut species in the world. The high nutritional value of J. regia nuts is associated with a rich array of polyphenolic compounds, whose complete(More)
Sugar pine (Pinus lambertiana Douglas) is within the subgenus Strobus with an estimated genome size of 31 Gbp. Transcriptomic resources are of particular interest in conifers due to the challenges presented in their megagenomes for gene identification. In this study, we present the first comprehensive survey of the P. lambertiana transcriptome through deep(More)
Populus trichocarpa is a biological model and a candidate species for bioethanol production. Although intraspecific variation is recognized, knowledge about genetic variation underlying the properties of its lignocellulosic biomass is still incomplete. Genetic variation is fundamental for continuing genetic improvement. In this study, we carried out a(More)
Millettia pinnata (formerly Pongamia pinnata) is a fast-growing leguminous tree indigenous to the Indian subcontinent, Southeast Asia, and Australia. This species has been introduced to subtropical and arid regions of Africa, India, the Philippines, Malaysia, Australia, and the USA for commercial growth. Exhibiting saline and drought tolerance, as well as(More)
Genetic components for economically important traits in walnut (Juglans regia) were estimated for the first time using historical pedigree and heirloom phenotypic data from the walnut breeding program at the University of California, Davis. The constructed pedigree is composed of ~ 15,000 individuals and is derived from current and historic phenotypic(More)
