Genotyping by Sequencing in Almond: SNP Discovery, Linkage Mapping, and Marker Design
In crop plant genetics, linkage maps provide the basis for the mapping of loci that affect important traits and for the selection of markers to be applied in crop improvement. In outcrossing species such as almond (Prunus ...
Detection and identification of five common internal grain insect pests by multiplex PCR
(Food Control, 2017-08-07)
Consumer demands for better quality food have led to research on new tools aimed at early detection of insect pests in agro food industries. In these industries, internal grain feeders are the most concerning pests because ...
Environmental fate and behaviour of the biocontrol agent Bacillus amyloliquefaciens CPA-8 after preharvest application to stone fruit
(Pest Management Science, 2017-09-30)
BACKGROUND:Bacillus amyloliquefaciensstrain CPA-8 has been described as an effective biocontrol agent to control brownrot in stone fruit for both preharvest and postharvest applications. However, no information about the ...
Transmission of ‘Candidatus Phytoplasma pyri’ by naturally infected Cacopsylla pyri to peach, an approach to the epidemiology of peach yellow leaf roll (PYLR) in Spain
(Plant Pathology, 2017-11-20)
Peach orchards in the northeast of Spain were severely affected in 2012 by a previously unreported disease in this area. The symptoms included early reddening, leaf curling, decline, abnormal fruits, and in some cases death ...
Dry formulations of the biocontrol agent Candida sakeCPA‐1 using fluidised bed drying to control the main postharvest diseases on fruits
(Journal of the Science of Food and Agriculture, 2017-01-23)
BACKGROUND: The biocontrol agentCandida sakeCPA-1 is effective against several diseases. Consequently, the optimisationof a dry formulation ofC. saketo improve its shelf life and manipulability is essential for increasing ...
Biopreservation of fresh-cut pear using Lactobacillus rhamnosus GG and effect on quality and volatile compounds
(LWT - Food Science and Technology, 2017-09-18)
In recent years, the consumption of minimally processed fruit has increased. However, unfortunately, these products could be an appropriate vehicle for the transmission of foodborne pathogens. In this study, the antagonistic ...

(Pest Management Science, 2017-11-16)
BACKGROUND Widespread resistance of Cydia pomonella to organophosphates was demonstrated in populations from the Spanish Ebro Valley area which showed high levels of enzymatic detoxification. To determine the efficacy of ...
Survey of over 4, 500 monumental olive trees preserved on-farm in the northeast Iberian Peninsula, their genotyping and characterization
(Scientia Horticulturae, 2017-12-29)
Inventorying, characterising and conserving on-farm ancient olive trees is a priority for safeguarding their genetic, natural and agricultural value and for protecting ancient genotypes threatened with extinction. In the ...
