Strand-specific RNA-Seq transcriptome analysis of genotypes with and without low-phosphorus tolerance provides novel insights into phosphorus-use efficiency in maize
(BioMed Central Ltd, 2016)
Background Phosphorus (P) stress is a global problem in maize production. Although macro/microarray technologies have greatly increased our general knowledge of maize responses to P stress, a greater understanding of the ...
A predetermined proportional gains eigen selection index method
The most general linear phenotypic selection index (PSI) is the predetermined proportional gains phenotypic selection index (PPG-PSI) that allows imposing restrictions on the trait expected genetic gain values to make some ...
Stay-green in spring wheat can be determined by spectral reflectance measurements (normalized difference vegetation index) independently from phenology
The green area displayed by a crop is a good indicator of its photosynthetic capacity, while chlorophyll retention or ?stay-green? is regarded as a key indicator of stress adaptation. Remote-sensing methods were tested to ...
Identification and functional characterization of the AGO1 ortholog in maize
Eukaryotic Argonaute proteins play primary roles in miRNA and siRNA pathways that are essential for numerous developmental and biological processes. However, the functional roles of the four ZmAGO1 genes have not yet been ...
