Simple sequence repeat (SSR) and other DNA sequence-tagged site markers can be genotyped more rapidly and cost efficiently by simultaneously amplifying multiple loci (multiplex PCR). The development of PCR-multiplexes for a nearly genome-wide framework of 78 SSR marker loci in cultivated sunflower (Helianthus annuus L.) is described herein. The most(More)
Simple sequence repeats (SSRs) are abundant and frequently highly polymorphic in transcribed sequences and widely targeted for marker development in eukaryotes. Sunflower (Helianthus annuus) transcript assemblies were built and mined to identify SSRs and insertions-deletions (INDELs) for marker development, comparative mapping, and other genomics(More)
In comparison to conventional marker-assisted selection (MAS), which utilizes only a subset of genetic markers associated with a trait to predict breeding values (BVs), genome-wide selection (GWS) improves prediction accuracies by incorporating all markers into a model simultaneously. This strategy avoids risks of missing quantitative trait loci (QTL) with(More)
The Limnanthaceae (Order Brassicales) is a family of 18 taxa of Limnanthes (meadowfoam) native to California, Oregon, and British Columbia. Cultivated meadowfoam (L. alba Benth.), a recently domesticated plant, has been the focus of research and development as an industrial oilseed for three decades. The goal of the present research was to develop several(More)
The seed oil of meadowfoam, a new crop in the Limnanthaceae family, is highly enriched in very long chain fatty acids that are desaturated at the Δ5 position. The unusual oil is desirable for cosmetics and innovative industrial applications and the seed meal remaining after oil extraction contains glucolimnanthin, a methoxylated benzylglucosinolate whose(More)
The TCP has provided the primary means to transfer data reliably across the Internet however TCP has imposed limitations on several applications. Measurement Modern networks routinely drop packets when the load temporarily exceeds their buffering capac ities. Early detection protocol s have tried to address thi s problem w ith a user-defined threshold the(More)
—In the present scenario location updating is main problem in mobile applications. Mobile clients will be spread based on location hierarchy. Updating all mobile clients' information at single database server faces overhead problem. To overcome this, in our approach we are providing server hierarchy for load balancing. Mobile clients generally send(More)
A Multiband vivaldi antenna is designed to operate in the X and Ku bands and simulational results are presented in this paper. Along with the ultrawide band, this particular vivaldi antenna is working in the range between 7 to 20 GHz at different resonent frequencies. Gain of more than 9dB and bandwidth enhancement of 0.92% can be achieved using this model.(More)
Erucic acid (22:1(13)) has been identified as an anti-nutritional compound in meadowfoam (Limnanthes alba) and other oilseeds in the Brassicales, a classification which has necessitated the development of low erucic acid cultivars for human consumption. The erucic acid concentrations of meadowfoam wild types (8%-24%) surpass industry standards for human(More)
