Reference gene selection for quantitative real-time polymerase chain reaction in Populus.
Patterns of DNA sequence variation at candidate gene loci in black poplar (Populus nigra L.) as revealed by single nucleotide polymorphisms
A candidate gene approach is used to infer the patterns of DNA variation in natural populations of black poplar, revealing a general excess of low-frequency mutations, a greater number of haplotypes than expected and an excess of high-frequency derived variants in P. nigra, consistent with previous findings that genetic hitchhiking has occurred.
Genome-Wide Analysis of the Fasciclin-Like Arabinogalactan Protein Gene Family Reveals Differential Expression Patterns, Localization, and Salt Stress Response in Populus
This study identified 35 Populus FLAs which were distributed on 16 chromosomes and phylogenetically clustered into four major groups and showed that purifying selection has played a leading role in the long-term evolutionary period which greatly maintained the function of this family.
Expression of Multiple Resistance Genes Enhances Tolerance to Environmental Stressors in Transgenic Poplar (Populus × euramericana ‘Guariento’)
Results suggested that multiple stress-resistance properties in important crop tree species could be simultaneously improved, although additional research is needed to fully understand the relationships between the altered phenotypes and the function of each transgene in multigene transformants.

The Agrobacterium method was used to transfer the tomato jasmonic ethylene responsive factors (JERFs) gene that encodes the ethylene response factor (ERF) like transcription factor to the genome of a hybrid poplar, implying that the JERFs gene enhanced their salt tolerance.

Transmembrane ion fluxes of H(+) , Ca(2+) and K(+) are recorded in guard cells of wild-type Arabidopsis, the CORONATINE INSENSITIVE1 (COI1) mutant coi1-1 and the PM H (+) -ATPase mutants aha1-6 and aha 1-7, using a non-invasive micro-test technique.
Sequencing the genome of Marssonina brunnea reveals fungus-poplar co-evolution
The results from the draft sequence of the M. brunnea genome provide evidence for genome-genome interactions that play an important role in poplar-pathogen co-evolution, which could help to design effective strategies for controlling Marssonina leaf spot inpoplar.

Light is shed on the molecular mechanism of PdREM in P. deltoides growth and development, and the foundation for future functional genomics research into wood formation and the genetic engineering of forest trees with improved wood quality traits is laid.
Laboratory and field evaluation of the transgenic Populus alba × Populus glandulosa expressing double coleopteran-resistance genes.
Field investigation indicated that the transgenic poplar retained coleopteran insect resistance in the field, suggesting the potential use of the double gene transgenicpoplar for pest management in commercial poplar plantations.

The Bt-Cry3A poplar decreased damage by the target pest (P. versicolora), had no effects on a non-target pest (C. anachoreta), and generally did not have any significant negative effect on the poplar arthropod community.
