Root and tuber crops have been an important part of human nutrition since the early days of humanity, providing us with essential carbohydrates, proteins, and vitamins. Today, they are especially important in tropical and subtropical regions of the world, where they help to feed an ever-growing population. Early induction and storage organ size are important agricultural traits, as they determine yield over time. During potato tuberization, environmental and metabolic status are sensed… 

Roles of Abscisic Acid and Gibberellins in Stem/Root Tuber Development

Root and tuber crops are of great importance. They not only contribute to feeding the population but also provide raw material for medicine and small-scale industries. The yield of the root and tuber

Metabolite profiling of tubers of an early- and a late-maturing potato line and their grafts

Earliness of tuberisation and the quality of potato tubers are important traits in potato breeding. The qualitative traits rely on the metabolite profile of tubers, which are storage organs and net

Transcriptome and Metabolome Analysis Provide New Insights into the Process of Tuberization of Sechium edule Roots

Chayote (Sechium edule) produces edible tubers with high starch content after 1 year of growth but the mechanism of chayote tuberization remains unknown. ‘Tuershao’, a chayote cultivar lacking edible

Potato tuber degradation is regulated by carbohydrate metabolism: Results of transcriptomic analysis

Novel insight is provided into potato tuber development and possible management strategies for improving potato cultivation by observing that tuber numbers at harvest were lower than at the tuber bulking stage and that carbohydrate metabolism plays a crucial role in tuber degradation.

Solanum tuberosum Microtuber Development under Darkness Unveiled through RNAseq Transcriptomic Analysis.

It is shown that 1715 up- and 1624 down-regulated genes were involved in this biological process, and it was revealed that at least six TFs-MYB43, TSF, bZIP27, b ZIP43, HAT4 and WOX9-may be involved during MTs development.

Salinity responses and tolerance mechanisms in underground vegetable crops: an integrative review

The present review gives an insight into the salinity stress tolerance responses and mechanisms of underground vegetable crops. Phytoprotectants, agronomic practices, biofertilizers, and modern

A chromosome-scale genome assembly of turmeric provides insights into curcumin biosynthesis and tuber formation mechanism

The chromosomal-level genome for turmeric is presented to explore the differences between tubers and rhizomes in the regulation of curcumin biosynthesis and the mechanism of tuber formation, and the availability of the C. longa genome provides insight into tuber formation and curcuming biosynthesis in turmeric as well as facilitating the understanding of other Curcuma species.

Resequencing and genome-wide association studies of autotetraploid potato

This study resequencing the genome of 108 main cultivar potato accessions with rich genetic diversity and population structure with approximate 20-fold coverage revealed more than 27 million Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms and 3 million Insertion and Deletions with high quality and accuracy.

Transcription factor StABI5-like 1 binding to the FLOWERING LOCUS T homologs promotes early maturity in potato

It is suggested that StABL1 functions with FT-like genes to promote flowering and tuberization and consequently life cycle length in potato, providing insight into the pleiotropic functioning of the FT gene.
