We have exploited the repetitive and dispersed nature of many long terminal repeat (LTR)-retrotransposon families for characterizing genome constitutions and classifying cultivars of the genusMusa. Insertional polymorphisms of the elements were studied using seven published and two newly designed primers facing outwards from the LTRs and reverse(More)
In this study, the bacteriostatic effect of Piper betle and Psidium guajava extracts on selected early dental plaque bacteria was investigated based on changes in the doubling time (g) and specific growth rates (micro). Streptococcus sanguinis, Streptococcus mitis and Actinomyces sp. were cultured in Brain Heart Infusion (BHI) in the presence and absence of(More)
Ty1-copia-like retrotransposons have been identified and investigated in several plant species. Here, the internal region of the reverse transcriptase (RT) gene of Ty1-copia-like retrotransposons was amplified by PCR from total genomic DNA of 10 varieties of banana. Two to four clones from each variety were sequenced. Extreme heterogeneity in the sequences(More)
In plant breeding programs, potential genotypes are usually evaluated in different environments (locations and years) before desirable ones are selected. Genotype x environment (G x E) interaction is associated with the differential performance of materials tested at different locations and in different years, and influences selection and recommendation of(More)

In this paper twelve barley (Hordeum vulgare L.) genotypes were screened for salt tolerance during seed germination in the Crop Production Department, Faculty of Agriculture, Jordan University of Science and Technology, Irbid, Jordan. To evaluate salt tolerance during germination, 30 seeds of each genotype were placed on towel paper in 9 cm Petri dishes(More)
