Inheritance and QTL analysis of chilling and heat requirements for flowering in an interspecific almond x peach (Texas x Earlygold) F2 population
(Springer Verlag, 2020-03-04)
Blooming in temperate fruit species is triggered by chilling and heat requirements (CR and HR), with a wide range of requirements within the same species. CR for flower bud dormancy release has become ...
Fine mapping of the peach pollen sterility gene (Ps/ps) and detection of markers for marker-assisted selection
(Molecular Breeding, 2020-06-10)
In peach, pollen sterility, expressed as absence of pollen in the anthers, segregates as an undesired trait in breeding programs. Pollen fertility screening in progenies is not a common practice mainly ...
Exploring deep learning for complex trait genomic prediction in polyploid outcrossing species
(Frontiers in Plant Science, 2020-02-06)
Genomic prediction (GP) is the procedure whereby the genetic merits of untested candidates are predicted using genome wide marker information. Although numerous examples of GP exist in plants and animals, ...
Co-expression network analysis predicts a key role of microRNAs in the adaptation of the porcine skeletal muscle to nutrient supply
(Journal of Animal Science and Biotechnology, 2020-01-17)
Background The role of non-coding RNAs in the porcine muscle metabolism is poorly understood, with few studies investigating their expression patterns in response to nutrient supply. Therefore, we aimed ...
An improved melon reference genome with single-molecule sequencing uncovers a recent burst of transposable elements with potential impact on genes
(Frontiers in Plant Science, 2020-01-31)
The published melon (Cucumis melo L.) reference genome assembly (v3.6.1) has still 41.6 Mb (Megabases) of sequences unassigned to pseudo-chromosomes and about 57 Mb of gaps. Although different approaches ...
Effect of root colonization by arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi on growth, Productivity and blast resistance in rice
Background Arbuscular mycorrhizal (AM) fungi form symbiotic associations with roots in most land plants. AM symbiosis provides benefits to host plants by improving nutrition and fitness. AM symbiosis ...
