Receptor-like kinases (RLKs) play key roles during development and in responses to the environment. Despite the relevance of the RLK family and the completion of the tomato genome sequencing, the tomato RLK family has not yet been characterized, and a framework for functional predictions of the members of the family is lacking. To generate a complete list(More)
Drought stress, particularly during the flowering and grain-filling stages of growth, contributes to serious yield loss in common bean (Phaseolus vulgaris L.). The aim of this study was to identify genes induced in response to drought stress using transcriptome analysis of contrasting genotypes. Using leaf tissues of tolerant (BAT 477) and susceptible(More)
Dengue virus (DENV) is the most widespread arthropod-borne virus, and the number and severity of outbreaks has increased worldwide in recent decades. Dengue is caused by DENV-1, DENV- 2, DENV-3 and DENV-4 which are genetically distant. The species has been subdivided into genotypes based on phylogenetic studies. DENV-2, which was isolated from dengue fever(More)
The increasing volume of genomic data on the Phaseolus vulgaris species have contributed to its importance as a model genetic species and positively affected the investigation of other legumes of scientific and economic value. To expand and gain a more in-depth knowledge of the common bean genome, the ends of a number of bacterial artificial chromosome(More)
The common bean, an important source of protein and minerals for humans, complements cereals both nutritionally and as a rotation crop, supplying nitrogen and reducing soil pathogens. The aim of this study was to develop an operational SNP-based panel for common bean in order to facilitate SSR employment in genetic diversity and population structure(More)
