Recent advances in genome-wide association studies (GWAS) have enabled us to identify thousands of genetic variants (GVs) that are associated with human diseases. As next-generation sequencing technologies become less expensive, more GVs will be discovered in the near future. Existing databases, such as NHGRI GWAS Catalog, collect GVs with only genome-wide(More)
Spring temperature is a major limiting factor at the beginning of the growing season, the timing of growth initiation can increase by about 7 days/°C. During the growing season, impacts of climate variables on radial growth are similar along an altitudinal gradient. Altitude is considered as an important factor affecting tree growth in mountain forest(More)
In the National Natural Reserve of the Qilian Mountains, northwest China, automated dendrometers were installed on Qilian juniper (Sabina przewalskii Kom.) in 2010. Here, we present a complete 1-year data series of dendrometer measurements and synchronous meteorological records. The mean daily radius change index curve obtained by first-difference(More)
Cambial activity of ~100-year-old Qilian juniper trees initiated before the middle of May at an elevation of 3200 m a.s.l.; June and July were the main stem radial increment period. Around the middle of August, all xylem cell differentiation periods are completed. Precipitation or relative humidity is the main limiting factor for tree radial growth on the(More)
