Abstract

Several genetically modified maize events expressing insecticidal proteins from Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt) have been commercially available in Brazil, intended to control of fall armyworm, Spodoptera frugiperda (Lepidoptera: Noctuidae). The objective of this study was to evaluate the efficiency of ...

Abstract

In the last forty years, the Bologna University apple breeding program produced and evaluated more than 50,000 seedlings from 600 cross combinations. Its goal-oriented strategy is mainly focused on the combination of pathogen and pest resistance with superior fruit quality attributes. The program...

Abstract

In the past decade, a considerable amount of grapevine research has focused on the identification of quantitative trait loci (QTLs) for disease resistance. Downy and powdery mildew resistances were the most studied traits with the discovery of 14 major effect QTLs for Plasmopara viticola (Rpv) and...

AbstractFull Text

Little information is available on the resistance level of tomato genotypes to tomato yellow leaf curl virus disease (TYLCVD) and vector. Thirty-six genotypes representing the current available and accessible tomato germplasm in Ghana were evaluated in RCBD with three reps, under Coastal savannah...

Abstract

This paper provides examples of crops derived from three modern genetic approaches to plant breeding: genetic engineering, which allows the introduction of genes from one species into another; marker-assisted breeding, which facilitates precision breeding using molecular techniques; and genome...

Abstract

Regulation of spatio-temporal expression patterns of stress tolerance associated plant genes is an essential component of the stress responses. Eukaryotes assign a large amount of their genome to transcription with multiple transcription factors (TFs). Often, these transcription factors fit into...

AbstractFull Text

Chickpea Blight is a devastating disease of chickpea (Cicer areitinum L.) worldwide caused by Ascochyta rabiei (Pass.) Lab. The disease is more disastrous particularly in long cool and humid environmental spells. It results in huge losses by wiping off all the crop in the desert areas whenever hit...

Abstract

Spilocaea oleaginea is the causal agent of olive leaf spot (OLS) disease on olive trees, which causes significant yield losses in many countries, including Portugal. The disease incidence is variable according to the olive cultivars, being cv. Cobrançosa more tolerant to OLS than...

Abstract

Alpha-(1,2)-fucosyltransferase (FUT1) gene has some influence on economically important traits and disease resistance. DNA methylation plays an important role in human diseases but is relatively poorly studied in pigs by regulating the mRNA expression of genes. The aim of this study was to analyze...

Abstract

DMA (major histocompatibility complex, class II, DM alpha) is a typical gene of chicken MHC class II, which is closely related to the host immune response and disease resistance. In this study, we detected DMA gene of 25 different chicken breeds by target capture sequencing and used DMA gene...
