Salt cress (Thellungiella halophila) is a small winter annual crucifer with a short life cycle. It has a small genome (about 2 x Arabidopsis) with high sequence identity (average 92%) with Arabidopsis, and can be genetically transformed by the simple floral dip procedure. It is capable of copious seed production. Salt cress is an extremophile native to(More)
Shoot tips and single node explants of two rootstocks (R.99 and 3309) and two varieties (‘Helwani’ and ‘Cabernet Franc’) of grapevine cultured on DSD1 media for a period of 60 days, were irradiated with 0, 2, 5 and 7 Gy doses of gamma irradiation. Shoot length of ‘Helwani’ and ‘Cabernet Franc’ was increased by 7 Gy irradiation. The 5 Gy dose increased the(More)
The life table of a local strain of grape phylloxera was determined to evaluate the resistance of the most commonly used rootstocks: Rul40, R99, and 3309C, and one local variety ‘Helwani’. The study was carried out by applying both in vitro dual culture and small root pieces testing systems. The results showed that there was a great variation in percentage(More)
Growth sensitivity of four local grapevine (Vitis vinifera) varieties, Ashlamesh, Helwani, Kassofee, and Khoudeiry, were evaluated for salt. They were cultured on DSD1 medium until rooting stage, then they were transferred to a liquid DSD1 medium containing 0, 10, 20, 30, 40, 80, 120, or 150 mM NaCl for 30 d. The shoot length and leaf number of Ashlamesh,(More)
