Selection and breeding of plant cultivars to minimize cadmium accumulation.
Natural variation occurs in the uptake and distribution of essential and nonessential trace elements among crop species and among cultivars within species. Such variation can be responsible for traceExpand

Development and analysis of EST-SSRs for flax (Linum usitatissimum L.)
A set of 146,611 expressed sequence tags (ESTs) were generated from 10 flax cDNA libraries. After assembly, a total of 11,166 contigs and 11,896 singletons were mined for the presence of putativeExpand

Integrated consensus genetic and physical maps of flax (Linum usitatissimum L.)
Three linkage maps of flax (Linum usitatissimum L.) were constructed from populations CDC Bethune/Macbeth, E1747/Viking and SP2047/UGG5-5 containing between 385 and 469 mapped markers each. The firstExpand

Simple sequence repeat marker development from bacterial artificial chromosome end sequences and expressed sequence tags of flax (Linum usitatissimum L.)
Flax is an important oilseed crop in North America and is mostly grown as a fibre crop in Europe. As a self-pollinated diploid with a small estimated genome size of ~370 Mb, flax is well suited forExpand

SSR-based linkage map of flax (Linum usitatissimum L.) and mapping of QTLs underlying fatty acid composition traits
Flax (Linum usitatissimum L.) seeds contain nearly 50% oil which is high in linolenic acid (an omega-3 fatty acid). In this study, a genetic linkage map was constructed based on 114 expressedExpand

Statistical analysis and field evaluation of the type 2 modified augmented design (MAD) in phenotyping of flax (Linum usitatissimum) germplasms in multiple environments
The type 2 modified augmented design (MAD) was used to phenotype seed yield, oil content and fatty acid compositions in a collection of 120 flax genotypes at two locations during three years. All sixExpand

Inheritance and interaction of spring wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) resistance to Race 2 and Race 3 of Pyrenophora tritici-repentis (Died.) Drechs.
Tan spot is a residue-borne leaf spotting disease caused by the fungal pathogen Pyrenophora tritici-repentis. An understanding of the inheritance of resistance is required to build a strategy forExpand

Effects of genotype and environment on the starch properties and end-product quality of oats
ABSTRACT Five Canadian oat genotypes were grown at six environments in Manitoba to assess the effects of genotype, environment, and genotype-by-environment interaction on oat starch properties andExpand

Cloning of fatty acid biosynthetic genes β-ketoacyl CoA synthase, fatty acid elongase, stearoyl-ACP desaturase, and fatty acid desaturase and analysis of expression in the early developmental stages
Abstract Flaxseed products in the form of nutraceuticals and health foods are now widespread. This success is mainly attributable to their essential fatty acids. To identify the key genes involved inExpand
