Abstract E. A. Vainio (Wainio) defended his doctoral thesis, “Vegetation relations in the border regions of NE Finland and Russian Karelia” in 1878 at the age of 24. This was the first biological dissertation published in Finnish. In his work Vainio presented relations between plant species in his study area, and identified factors that increased or decreased the dominance of different kinds of vegetation and distributional limits for different species. Vainio expressed the early idea of site…

2,4-D induction of somaclonal variations in in vitro grown date palm (Phoenix dactylifera L. cv Barhee)

The ISSR analysis of 2,4-D-treated material showed that this plant growth regulator (PGR) induced measurable genetic variations, and the global DNA methylation rates as estimated through the HPLC analysis of nucleosides confirmed the presence of epigenetic changes caused by 2, 4-D.

Accumulation of high contents of free amino acids in the leaves of Nicotiana benthamiana by the co-suppression of NbClpC1 and NbClpC2 genes

The co-suppression of Nicotiana benthamianaClpC1 and ClpC2 genes resulted in a pleiotropic phenotype including disappearance of apical dominance and formation of chlorotic leaves and can offer a novel strategy for accumulation of free amino acids though it results in stunted growth.
