Comparative analysis of genetic diversity in sacred lotus (Nelumbo nucifera Gaertn.) using AFLP and SSR markers
It is shown that sacred lotus exhibited a low level of genetic diversity, which may attribute to asexual reproduction and long-term artificial selection, and knowledge of the genetic diversity and genetic relatedness of N. nucifera is potentially useful to improve the current strategies in breeding and germplasm conservation.

Polyphenol oxidase activity in harvest rhizome of lotus (Nelumbo nucifera Gaertn. ssp. nucifera) and its relationship with morphological characteristics
For red flower varieties, those with a few knot number of main stem of rhizome and the former three knots can be selected in priority, while the heart part of former four knots in white flower variety should be preferred. Expand
A model for integrated approach to germplasm conservation of Asian lotus (Nelumbo nucifera Gaertn.)
Possible conservation strategies are proposed with a view to draw the attention of policy makers and stakeholders for prioritizing this species in various biodiversity-related programs of the country, besides promoting it as a potential food and nutraceutical species. Expand
Genetic diversity and differentiation of lotus (Nelumbo nucifera) accessions assessed by simple sequence repeats
The results herein indicated that the current levels of genetic diversity and differentiation between the lotuses have been greatly influenced by artificial selection. Expand
The level of genetic diversity and differentiation of tropical lotus, Nelumbo nucifera Gaertn. (Nelumbonaceae) from Australia, India, and Thailand
It is proposed that complementary conservation approaches ought to be introduced to conserve tropical lotus, depending on the genetic variations and threat levels in populations. Expand
Resequencing of 296 cultivated and wild lotus accessions unravels its evolution and breeding history.
Lotus (family: Nelumbonaceae) are perennial aquatic plants that represent one of the most ancient basal dicots. In the present study, we resequenced 296 lotus accessions from various geographicalExpand
Unraveling the seed endosperm proteome of the lotus (Nelumbo nucifera Gaertn.) utilizing 1DE and 2DE separation in conjunction with tandem mass spectrometry
A proteome catalog of the lotus plant is developed, starting with its seed, the nutrient rich food source, where the most abundant protein functions were in categories of metabolic activities related to carbohydrate metabolism and nutrient storage. Expand

Located in the Jianghan plain in Hubei Province, China, the Wangshanqiao Tomb No. 1 is a large-sized burial belonging to a high-status male from the Chu State during Warring States period (475–221Expand
The Establishment of an Efficient Callus Induction System for Lotus (Nelumbo nucifera)
A highly efficient callus induction system for the lotus is developed by optimizing a series of key factors that affect callus formation by induced on immature cotyledon and embryo explants grown on Murashige and Skoog basal medium. Expand
Construction of a high-density, high-quality genetic map of cultivated lotus (Nelumbo nucifera) using next-generation sequencing
This study reports the large-scale discovery of SNPs between cultivars of rhizome and seed lotus using a ddRADseq library combined with NGS that have been used to construct the first high-density genetic map for cultivated lotus that can serve as a genomic reference and will facilitate genetic mapping of important traits in the parental cultivars.

Zizania latifolia Turcz. cultivated in China
Zizania latifolia, which belongs to the tribe Oryzeae, has been cultivated for more than 2000 years and has historically been used in China mainly as an aquatic vegetable. In China, the largest areaExpand
Genetic diversity of Nelumbo accessions revealed by RAPD
Principal Coordinate Analysis (PCA) indicated that the genetic diversity of Nelumbo accessions was not evenly distributed, instead, was presented by a clustered distribution pattern, and neither the UPGMA dendrogram nor the PCA analysis exhibited strict relationship with geographic distribution and morphotypes among the accessions. Expand
Cluster Analysis of Nelumbo Accessions Based on RAPD Markers
Lotus with flowers, lotus with seeds and lotsus with root might be derived from different wild lotus, similar to the traditional horticaltural classification of N. lutea and lotus accessions with flower. Expand
Classification of lotus cultivars according to the dual classification system for ornamental plants
The basic contents of the dual classification system for ornamental plants are recommended, after the present state of cultivar classification systems which have paid much emphasis on practicalExpand
