Allelic combinations of major photoperiodic (E1, E3, E4) and maturity (E2) genes have extended the adaptation of quantitative photoperiod sensitive soybean crop from its origin (China ∼35 ∘N latitude) to both north (up to ∼50 ∘N) and south (up to 40 ∘S) latitudes, but their allelic status and role in India (6–35 ∘N) are unknown. Loss of function and(More)
High-temperature stress is a major environmental stress and there are limited studies elucidating its impact on soybean (Glycine max L. Merril.). The objectives of present study were to quantify the effect of high temperature on changes in leaf thickness, number of stomata on adaxial and abaxial leaf surfaces, gas exchange, chlorophyll fluorescence(More)
The arbuscular mycorrhizal (AM) fungi-rhizobia synergism is a promising approach for improving the growth and nutrition of soybean. It is, therefore, imperative to evaluate potential soybean rhizobia and AM fungi singly to identify their stress protectant physiological traits, enhance growth and nodulation of soybean and improve soil health. The efficacy of(More)
Commentary In an era of small RNA (sRNA) transcriptomics, microRNAs (miRNAs) require little introduction. miRNAs are small non-coding RNAs (sncRNAs) that play vital role in post transcriptional gene silencing (PTGS) in nucleotide sequence dependent manner either by cleaving target mRNA or by repressing cognate mRNA translation [1]. In plants, miRNAs have(More)
