Cassava resist dyeing: Traditional dyeing techniques in a new environment [PowerPoint presentation]
In several cultures around the world, paste resist dyeing has been traditionally performed in the dyeing of textiles. In Nigeria, adire eleko is a method which uses cassava as the base for the paste. In Japan, a similar ...
An AFLP marker linked to the Pm-1 gene that confers resistance to Podosphaera xanthii race 1 in Cucumis melo
(Sociedade Brasileira de Genética, 2008)
Brazil produced 330,000 metric tons of melons in 2005, principally in the Northeast region where one of the most important melon pathogens is the powdery mildew fungus Podosphaera xanthii. The disease is controlled mainly ...
Molecular mapping of the genomic region conferring resistance to soybean stem canker in Hutcheson soybean
Genetic resistance to soybean stem canker, caused by the fungus Diaporthe phaseolorum var. meridionalis (Dpm), is controlled by five major, dominant, nonallelic genes Rdm1 to Rdm5. A genomic region containing the Rdm4 and ...
Microarray analysis of cytochrome P450 mediated insecticide resistance in Drosophila
(Elsevier B.V., 2014)
Does the major aluminium-resistance gene in wheat, TaALMT1, also confer tolerance to alkaline soils?
Aim: A major limitation to plant growth in acid soils is the prevalence of toxic Al3+. Most genotypic variation for acid soil-tolerance in wheat is linked with the Al3+-activated efflux of malate anions from roots which ...
Skin test and tick immune status in susceptible and resistant cattle in Brazil
A cutaneous hypersensitivity test (CHT) was used to correlate host resistance to ticks and type of reaction elicited to unfed larval extract-ULE of the cattle tick Boophilus microplus in European and Indian cattle. Twenty ...
Advances in Apple Transformation Technology to Confer Resistance to Fungal Diseases in Apple Crops: A Chilean Perspective
(Instituto de Investigaciones Agropecuarias, INIA, 2010)
Citrus psorosis virus coat protein-derived hairpin construct confers stable transgenic resistance in citrus against psorosis A and B syndromes
Citrus psorosis virus (CPsV) is the causal agent of psorosis, a serious and widespread citrus disease. Two syndromes of psorosis, PsA and PsB, have been described. PsB is the most aggressive and rampant form. Previously, ...
Costs and benefits of hydroxamic acids-related resistance in winter wheat against the bird cherry-oat aphid, Rhopalosiphum padi L.
(Association of Applied Biologists, 1996)
Estimations of infestation by the bird cherry-oat aphid (Rhopalosiphum padi) as well as measurements of grain yield in 26 Hungarian winter wheat cultivars under field conditions were correlated with the concentration of ...
Survey of the Bru1 gene for brown rust resistance in Brazilian local and basic sugarcane germplasm
Bru1 is currently the major gene conferring brown rust resistance in sugarcane, and diagnostic markers are available. A survey for the presence of this gene was conducted on 391 genotypes including Brazilian cultivars, ...
