Demand for potato is steadily rising in developing countries, where actual per-hectare production levels reach mere fractions of the yields achieved in Europe or North America. Improving abiotic stress tolerance, e.g., against drought, could increase these low potato yields and thus help to...
We used 19 quantitative traits and 14 microsatellite markers (SSRs) to analyze the genetic variation in four natural populations of the model legume Medicago truncatula sampled in southern Tunisia. The greatest genetic variation of quantitative traits and molecular markers occurred within...
Cultivated sugarcane possesses a large number of chromosomes (typically >80) which can be organised into eight homology groups, each containing approximately 12 homo(eo)logous chromosomes. Currently, microsatellite (SSR) markers are the most easily used markers for marker-assisted selection and...
Sugarcane is a crop with great potential for metabolic engineering, but progress has been limited by highly efficient transgene silencing. The potential exists to utilize efficient gene silencing in molecular improvement through down-regulation of sugarcane genes. However, sugarcane is highly...
The C-biotype of Moniliophthora perniciosa is the causal agent of witches’ broom disease of Theobroma cacao L. While this disease is of major economic importance, the pathogenicity mechanisms and plant responses underlying the disease are difficult to study given the cacao tree’s long life cycle...
