Cover for Gene silencing to induce pathogen-derived resistance in plants.

This chapter provides information on the history of the use of pathogen-derived resistance (PDR) in plants and use of PDR for basic research and commercial purposes. Some limitations of the RNA interference (RNAi) technology are presented and various tools that can be used to design RNAi constructs ...

Cover for Exogenous application of RNAs as a silencing tool for discovering gene function.

This chapter focuses on the importance of the RNA silencing technique in unraveling the function of genes by inhibiting gene expression at the post-transcriptional level, and is particularly appropriate for studying developmental processes such as fruit setting and growth that require a tight...

Cover for Biogenesis and functional RNAi in fruit trees.

In plants, genome expression is linked to the transcribed mRNAs that are synthesized by RNA polymerase. Following its move to the cytoplasm, the generated mRNA is briefly translated to the encoded protein. If transcription and translation are dependent on the family of RNA polymerase, these two...

Cover for Gene silencing or gene editing: the pros and cons.

Research into plant genetics often requires the suppression or complete knockout of gene expression to scientifically validate gene function. In addition, the phenotypes obtained from gene suppression can occasionally have commercial value for plant breeders. Until recently, the methodological...

Cover for The stability of dsRNA during external applications - an overview.

The research community is deeply convinced that RNA is unstable in the environment. Its roots rise from numerous failed attempts to isolate functional cellular RNA molecules. Further support had originated from the fast turnover of RNA in the cells. The situation changed recently with the discovery ...

Cover for Principles of forest biotechnology.

This chapter describes the principles of forest biotechnology. To genetically engineer a tree, a single, transformed cell must be regenerated into a whole plant. Agrobacterium tumefaciens is commonly used as a vehicle to transform (introduce genetic material) into the chromosome of a plant cell,...
