Rapid-cycling populations of six economically important species in the genus Brassica have unusual potential for resolving many problems in plant biology and for use in education. Rapid-cycling brassicas can produce up to ten generations of seed per year and serve as models for research in genetics, host-parasite relations, molecular biology, cell biology, plant biochemistry, population biology, and plant breeding. Brassicas are a highly diverse group of crop plants that have great economic… Expand
Realizing the Potential of Rapid-Cycling Brassica as a Model System for Use in Plant Biology Research
  • M. Musgrave
  • Biology, Medicine
  • Journal of Plant Growth Regulation
  • 2000
TLDR
Rapid-cycling Brassica populations were initially developed as a model for probing the genetic basis of plant disease, but have seen wide application in plant and crop physiology investigations and their extensive use in K-12 education and outreach. Expand
Fast plants for finer science—an introduction to the biology of rapid-cycling Brassica campestris (rapa) L.
TLDR
Rapid-cycling brassicas, originally developed for plant breeding research, promise to be of value in school and college teaching, and methods for circumventing the flower's self-incompatibility are reviewed. Expand
Characterization of populations of rapid-cycling Brassica rapa L. selected for differential waterlogging tolerance
TLDR
By challenging a heterogenous population of plants (rapid-cycling Brassica rapa L.) with waterlogging stress, plants which differed in their response to root zone hypoxia were selected and mass-pollinated and re-selected to produce the stable populations described. Expand
Genetics of Brassica rapa L.
TLDR
This chapter reviews the current use of available molecular marker technologies in B. rapa genetic analysis and breeding for important morphological, agronomic, quality, abiotic and disease resistance QTL/gene mapping and their utilization in marker-assisted breeding. Expand
CERATOPTERIS RICHARDII: APPLICATIONS FOR EXPERIMENTAL PLANT BIOLOGY'
TLDR
Recent progress in the development of a system for introducing exogenous DNA in Ceratopteris cells provides a foundation for future studies of the molecular basis of selected traits. Expand
Genetic transformation in oilseed brassicas - A review
TLDR
The work on regeneration and genetic transformation in the Brassica species will be reviewed and there is still a need for development of efficient transformation methods to overcome genotype dependency. Expand
The Molecular Genetic Basis of Flowering Time Variation in Brassica Species
TLDR
It has been difficult to obtain a comprehensive picture of the genetic control of morphological diversity in Brassica crops, but for this trait considerable progress in understanding has been made. Expand
Selection and Characterization of Populations of Rapid-Cycling Brassica Rapa L. Differing in Their Response to Rootzone Hypoxia.
TLDR
Challenging a heterogenous population of plants (rapidcycling Brassica rapa L.) with waterlogging, plants which differed in their response to rootzone hypoxia were selected and mass pollinated to produce the next generation. Expand
Brassica biotechnology: Progress in cellular and molecular biology
TLDR
The use of molecular markers in marker-assisted selection and breeding, transformation technology for the introduction of desirable traits, and a comparative analysis of these as well as their future prospects are important parts of the current research that is reviewed. Expand
Regeneration of plants from protoplasts of rapid cycling Brassica oleracea L.
TLDR
Rapid cycling Brassica species have great potential in plant genetic research because of their short life cycles and their minimal space requirements, and fast regeneration of flowering plants from protoplasts of rapid cycling B. oleracea is reported on. Expand

CYTOKININS AND THE REGENERATION OF PLANTLETS FROM SECONDARY EMBRYOIDS OF WINTER OILSEED RAPE, BRASSIC A NAP US SSP. OLEIFERA
TLDR
It was found by experiment that an effective method of inducing leaf initiation and reducing secondary embryogenesis was to transfer the secondary embryoids to a basal medium supplemented with 6-furfurylaminopurine (kinetin; 10-4 M), alone or in combination with low concentrations of indole-3-acetic acid. Expand
High growth rate and regeneration capacity of hypocotyl protoplasts in some Brassicaceae
TLDR
To obtain a high frequency of regeneration, rapidly growing calli were transferred to media having a high cytokinin:auxin ratio as early as possible, usually 3 weeks after protoplast isolation. Expand
High frequency embryogenesis through isolated microspore culture in Brassica napus L. and B. Carinata braun
TLDR
Although incubation at 30°C produced the highest frequency of embryos, lower culture temperatures induced better quality embryos. Expand
Influence of Preculture Variables on Microspore Embryo Production in Brassica napus ssp. oleifera cv. Duplo
TLDR
The study confirmed that the different components of the final embryo yield are differentially affected by the four preculture variables tested and must be controlled if reproducible results are to be achieved. Expand
Minimum-Tillage Forage Turnip and Rape Production on Hill Land as Influenced by Sod Suppression and Fertilizer1
TLDR
The purpose of this research was to determine the feasibility of producing Brassica spp. Expand

The pollen–stigma interaction resulting in self-incompatibility in the cruciferous plant Brassica has been correlated with glycoproteins that display polymorphisms in all S genotypes examined. AExpand
Tripartite structure of the Brassica campestris mitochondrial genome
TLDR
Physical mapping studies indicate a novel sequence arrangement, consisting of three circular chromosomes, for the mitochondrial genome of Brassica campestris, and postulated to interconvert with the master chromosome via a co-integration-resolution pathway mediated by reciprocal recombination within the 2-kb repeat. Expand
Changes in the activity of acetyl-CoA carboxylase during rape-seed formation.
TLDR
During the formation of rape-seeds, lipid accumulated in the cotyledons from 16 days after pollination, rising to a plateau after 28 days, preceded by a marked rise in acetyl-CoA carboxylase activity, which declined rapidly, correlating with the decline in rate of lipid formation. Expand
Nuclear DNA Amounts in Angiosperms
TLDR
This paper lists absolute nuclear DNA amounts for 753 angiosperm species, primarily for reference purposes, and so the species are listed in alphabetical order, as this was felt to be more helpful to cyto- and biochemists whom, it is anticipated, will be among its major users. Expand
