Comparison of Two Strategies to Introgress Genes for Resistance to Common Scab from Diploid Solanum chacoense into Tetraploid Cultivated Potato

This study revealed that, while hybridization strategy did not play a major role in developing this scab resistant germplasm, it is critical to consider production environment when screening for resistance.

Dakota Diamond: An Exceptionally High Yielding, Cold Chipping Potato Cultivar with Long-Term Storage Potential

Dakota Diamond is aptly named for its excellent attributes, including beautiful appearance, excellent chip quality particularly from late season storage, resistance to common scab, and exceptionally high yield potential, and in honor of the Diamond Jubilee.

Cultivar Improvement with Exotic Germplasm: An Example from Potato

Backcrossing in this system would allow valuable genes from exotic sources to be fixed in high-performing cultivated potato backgrounds, which offers exciting new possibilities for contributions of wild and cultivated potato relatives to potato cultivar improvement.

Genetic Variation and Unintended Risk in the Context of Old and New Breeding Techniques

This review attempts to shed light on apprehensions by putting purported “risks” into the context of plant breeding as a whole by comparing frequencies of spontaneous mutations with those that occur through various conventional and biotechnological breeding approaches, including transgenics and genome editing.

Targeted genome editing in tetraploid potato through transient TALEN expression by Agrobacterium infection.

The strategy using transient gene expression by Agrobacterium that is called Agrobacterial mutagenesis, developed here should accelerate the use of genome-editing technology to modify heterozygous plant genomes.

Broadening Genetic Diversity of the Japanese Potato Gene Pool

These PGEL clones can be used to expand genetic diversity in Japanese potato breeding populations with larger mean Euclidean distances between PGEL clone and Japanese, foreign, or all tetraploid varieties than between Japanese and foreign varieties.

Identification of Quantitative Trait Loci for Stem-End Chip Defect and Potato Chip Color Traits in a ‘Lenape’-Derived Full-Sib Population

The QTL identified are starting points for developing molecular markers that are used to select genotypes that produce light-colored chips and have resistance to SECD formation.

Perception of Three Agricultural Applications of Genetic Engineering

This paper presents a meta-analyses of the determinants of earthquake-triggered landsliding in Italy and its consequences in the period of 1991-1995 and their effects on seismic activity in the region and around the world.
