Q gene is the major domestication gene of wheat and many questions concerning Q gene genetics, including Q gene variability and its functional influence on phenotype, remain unanswered for the majority of wheat species. Here we crossed wheat species with dominant (Q) and recessive (q) alleles and confirmed that Q gene controls threshability, rachis(More)
Vernalization genes VRN1 play a major role in the transition from vegetative to reproductive growth in wheat. In di-, tetra- and hexaploid wheats the presence of a dominant allele of at least one VRN1 gene homologue (Vrn-A1, Vrn-B1, Vrn-G1 or Vrn-D1) determines the spring growth habit. Allelic variation between the Vrn-1 and vrn-1 alleles relies on(More)
The comparison of the absolute figures of the tick-borne encephalitis morbidity and mortality rates in the Primorye Territory for 16-22 years with the climatic parameters and the characteristics of the natural focus in the key area has allowed one to reveal close relationship between the two above-mentioned epidemiological characteristics and such factors(More)
Nosema bombi is an obligate intracellular parasite of bumblebees (Hymenoptera, Bombus spp.), which has significant negative effect on individual bumblebees, colony fitness, and development. Recently, several new genetic variants of N. bombi without a defined taxonomic status were identified in natural bumblebee populations from Russia, China, and several(More)
The annual dynamics of the epidemic process in tick-borne encephalitis and its spread in the Maritime Territory, endemic for this infection, have been studied. The study has shown that in the central mountainous regions grown with boreal forest, in contrast to the rest of this focal area, a higher morbidity level and more severe outcomes of this infection(More)
Analysis of 846 epidemiological charts of unvaccinated tick-borne encephalitis patients in the period of 1956-1985 established that in 21% cases the disease resulted from multiple bites of the ticks, in 67.3% it occurred from single bites. In 11.7% of the patients, the bite was denied. Single infecting bites were mostly those of the head and neck (39.2%(More)
