Abstract

We previously transformed cabbage plants with a Bacillus thuringiensiscry1Ia8 gene. The resulting transgenic plants were able to control both susceptible and Cry1Ac-resistant Plutella xylostella larvae. For practical applications, transgenes should be inherited in a stable and predictable manner....

Abstract

The rice root-knot nematode Meloidogyne graminicola was detected in North Italy attacking roots of rice plants in lowland and upland fields. This nematode was previously reported only in South and Southeast Asia, China, South Africa, United States, Columbia and Brazil attacking rice and wheat. The...

Abstract

Glutathione S-transferases are important enzymes in protecting cells by scavenging reactive oxygen species induced by various stresses. In this study, a novel GST gene, MsGST (KM044312), was cloned and characterized from alfalfa. The open reading frame of MsGST contains 660 bp nucleotides, encoding...

On 24 March 2017, the German authorities reported the contamination of a 'do-it-yourself' bacterial gene engineering CRISPR kit produced in the USA. The kit was contaminated with pathogenic bacteria (risk group 2), including some bacteria that are multidrug-resistant and extended spectrum...

CAB ReviewFull Text

The prediction of complex or quantitative traits from single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) genotypes has transformed livestock and plant breeding, and is also playing an increasingly important role in prediction of human disease. Genomic predictions are made using a prediction equation derived from...

CAB ReviewFull Text

Next-generation sequencing (NGS) platforms became available commercially about a decade ago. They provide highly efficient, rapid, and low-cost high-throughput and deep DNA sequencing. They are being continually improved to become faster, more efficient and cheaper and have been used in biology...

CAB ReviewFull Text

Improvement of litter size in pigs through selection was considered a difficult task in the past. Low heritability, negative correlation between direct additive genetic and maternal effect, limited size of the nucleus population, expression only in females, and relatively late age of measurements,...

AbstractFull Text

Fertility performance of pig (Sus scrofa) is a main objective trait in pig genetic improvement, which is difficult to achieve great genetic progress with traditional breeding method due to its relative lower heritability. To investigate the performance of the restriction association site DNA...
