DNA sequences are presented for two members of the wheat Em gene family. The sequences correspond to the two linked genes at the Xem-1AL locus. Comparisons of these sequences with that of another wheat Em gene and two Em cDNA clones reveals substantial homology within the protein-coding regions, and the presence in the 5′-flanking regions of the genomic(More)
Vertical migration of Daphnia represents the best-studied predator-avoidance behaviour known; yet the mechanisms underlying the choice to migrate require further investigation to understand the role of environmental context. To investigate the optimal habitat choice of Daphnia under fish predation pressure, first, we selected the individuals exhibiting(More)
Within the last decade, an increasing amount of genetic data has been used to clarify the problems inherent in wheat taxonomy. The techniques for obtaining and analyzing these data are not only cumbersome, but also expensive and technically demanding. In the present study, we introduce infrared spectroscopy as a method for a sensitive, rapid and low cost(More)
B ombardment of intact cells and tissue with DNA-coated microprojectiles may represent a general scheme for the transformation of plants (Potrykus, 1991). The protocol is simple and rapid and is essentially the same, regardless of DNA or target cells. The gene gun realistically appears to offer some hope of becoming an ideal gene delivery system (Sanford et(More)
In this study, we report the results of a geographical variation analysis on the gene frequencies of ABO and RH systems in 67 provinces of Turkey. The gene frequencies of A, O and RH(-), were subjected to spatial autocorrelation analysis and significant spatial autocorrelation coefficients were observed for each gene in the first distance class. The average(More)
Cultivated wheat, (Triticum aestivum L.), is one of the most important food crops in the world. The Aegilops L. genus is frequently utilized by plant breeders for improving the current wheat cultivars due to their close relationships. Therefore, understanding the phylogenetic relationships among the species of these genera is not only valuable for plant(More)
