Abstract

The beet armyworm, Spodoptera exigua (Hubner), is one of the major crop pests and is a target for current pest control approaches using insecticides. S. exigua melanic mutants (SEM) spontaneously occurred in the S. exigua wild type (SEW) strain and have been maintained under laboratory conditions...

Abstract

Vegetative insecticidal proteins (Vips) represent the second generation of insecticidal trans-genes that will complement the Bacillus thuringiensis delta endotoxins in future. A new vip3A gene was cloned from the promising native isolate, B. thuringiensis JK37 obtained from the soils of maize...

Abstract

Cucumber green mottle mosaic virus (CGMMV) is one of the most devastating viruses infecting members of the family Cucurbitaceae. The assembly initiation site of CGMMV is located in the coding region of the coat protein, which is not only involved in virion assembly but is also a key factor...

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...

AbstractFull Text

Objective: The nicotianamine aminotransferase gene (SoNAAT1) of sugarcane was cloned, and its biological information and expression under Fe deficiency stress was analyzed, in order to provide theoretical basis for further exploring the role of SoNAAT1 in sugarcane Fe-chelating compounds known as...
