Post-glacial evolution of Panicum virgatum: centers of diversity and gene pools revealed by SSR markers and cpDNA sequences
Switchgrass (Panicum virgatum), a central and Eastern USA native, is highly valued as a component in tallgrass prairie and savanna restoration and conservation projects and a potential bioenergyExpand
Natural Hybrids and Gene Flow between Upland and Lowland Switchgrass
Switchgrass (Panicum virgatum L.) is a perennial grass native to the North American tallgrass prairie and savanna habitats and is broadly adapted to the central and eastern United States. Upland andExpand
Model analysing the antioxidant responses of leaves and roots of switchgrass to NaCl-salinity stress.
Salinity is a major environmental stress and a substantial constraint on plant production. The objective of this research was to better understand the mechanisms of the antioxidant responses ofExpand
Inside out: high-efficiency plant regeneration and Agrobacterium-mediated transformation of upland and lowland switchgrass cultivars
Key messageSelection of pre-embryogenic callus from a core structurefrom mature seed-derived callus is the key for high-efficiency plant regeneration and transformation of switchgrass differentExpand
Molecular Insights of Genetic Variation in Erianthus arundinaceus Populations Native to China
Background E. arundinaceus (Retz.) Jeswiet is a warm-season, tall-growing perennial species native to much southern portion in China. The grass has been extensively used in sugarcane breeding and isExpand
Genetic Variability and Population Structure of the Potential Bioenergy Crop Miscanthus sinensis (Poaceae) in Southwest China Based on SRAP Markers
The genus Miscanthus has great potential as a biofuel feedstock because of its high biomass, good burning quality, environmental tolerance, and good adaptability to marginal land. In this study, theExpand
Modeling Analysis on Germination and Seedling Growth Using Ultrasound Seed Pretreatment in Switchgrass
Switchgrass is a perennial C4 plant with great potential as a bioenergy source and, thus, a high demand for establishment from seed. This research investigated the effects of ultrasound treatment onExpand
Evaluation of Candidate Reference Genes for Normalization of Quantitative RT-PCR in Switchgrass Under Various Abiotic Stress Conditions
Quantitative real-time reverse transcriptase PCR (qRT-PCR) is a sensitive and powerful technique for measuring differential gene expression; however, changes in gene expression induced by abioticExpand
Synergistic and Antagonistic Effects of Salinity and pH on Germination in Switchgrass (Panicum virgatum L.)
The effects of salt-alkaline mixed stress on switchgrass were investigated by evaluating seed germination and the proline, malondialdehyde (MDA) and soluble sugar contents in three switchgrassExpand
Modelling analysis for enhancing seed vigour of switchgrass (Panicum virgatum L.) using an ultrasonic technique
Abstract Via modelling analysis, conditions for the ultrasound treatment of switchgrass seeds, including sonication time (factor A), sonication temperature (factor B) and ultrasound output powerExpand
