The coffee genome provides insight into the convergent evolution of caffeine biosynthesis
Coffee, tea, and chocolate converge Caffeine has evolved multiple times among plant species, but no one knows whether these events involved similar genes. Denoeud et al. sequenced the CoffeaExpand

Genetically modified coffee plants expressing the Bacillus thuringiensis cry1Ac gene for resistance to leaf miner
Abstract A synthetic version of the cry1Ac gene of Bacillus thuringiensis has been used for the transformation of coffee species (Coffea canephora and C. arabica) to confer resistance to an importantExpand

Genetic Architecture of Palm Oil Fatty Acid Composition in Cultivated Oil Palm (Elaeis guineensis Jacq.) Compared to Its Wild Relative E. oleifera (H.B.K) Cortés
We searched for quantitative trait loci (QTL) associated with the palm oil fatty acid composition of mature fruits of the oil palm E. guineensis Jacq. in comparison with its wild relative E. oleiferaExpand

Biochemical and genomic analysis of sucrose metabolism during coffee (Coffea arabica) fruit development.
Sucrose metabolism and the role of sucrose synthase were investigated in the fruit tissues (pericarp, perisperm, and endosperm) of Coffea arabica during development. Acid invertase, sucrose phosphateExpand

Diversity of the cassiicolin gene in Corynespora cassiicola and relation with the pathogenicity in Hevea brasiliensis.
Corynespora cassiicola is an important plant pathogenic Ascomycete causing the damaging Corynespora Leaf Fall (CLF) disease in rubber tree (Hevea brasiliensis). A small secreted glycoprotein namedExpand

Diversity in coffee assessed with SSR markers: structure of the genus Coffea and perspectives for breeding.
The present study shows transferability of microsatellite markers developed in the two cultivated coffee species (Coffea arabica L. and C. canephora Pierre ex Froehn.) to 15 species representing theExpand

Characterization of a cassiicolin-encoding gene from Corynespora cassiicola, pathogen of rubber tree (Hevea brasiliensis).
Corynespora Leaf Fall (CLF) is a major disease of rubber tree (Hevea brasiliensis) caused by the Ascomycota Corynespora cassiicola. Here we describe the cloning and characterization of a geneExpand

Construction and characterization of a Coffea canephora BAC library to study the organization of sucrose biosynthesis genes
The first bacterial artificial chromosome (BAC) library of Robusta coffee (Coffea canephora) was constructed, with the aim of developing molecular resources to study the genome structure andExpand

Quantitative trait loci (QTLs) analysis of palm oil fatty acid composition in an interspecific pseudo-backcross from Elaeis oleifera (H.B.K.) Cortés and oil palm (Elaeis guineensis Jacq.)
We chose an Elaeis interspecific pseudo-backcross of first generation (E. oleifera × E. guineensis) × E. guineensis to identify quantitative trait loci (QTLs) for fatty acid composition of palm oil.Expand

First characterization of endophytic Corynespora cassiicola isolates with variant cassiicolin genes recovered from rubber trees in Brazil
Corynespora cassiicola is the causal agent of Corynespora Leaf Fall (CLF) disease. CLF is one of the most important fungal diseases of rubber trees in Asia and Africa but disease outbreaks have notExpand
