Organogenesis from transformed tomato explants
(Humana Press, 2005)
Tomato was one of the first crops for which a genetic transformation system was reported involving regeneration by organogenesis from Agrobacterium-transformed explants. Since the initial reports, various factors have been ...
Mapping quantitative trait loci in inbred backcross lines of Lycopersicon pimpinellifolium (LA1589)
(National Research Council of Canada, 2002-11)
Although tomato has been the subject of extensive quantitative trait loci (QTLs) mapping experiments, most of this work has been conducted on transient populations (e.g., F2 or backcross) and few homozygous, permanent ...
Fine mapping of quantitative trait loci for improved fruit characteristics from Lycopersicon chmielewskii chromosome 1
(National Research Council of Canada, 2003-04)
The near-isogenic line (NIL) TA1150 contains a 56-cM introgression from Lycopersicon chmielewskii chromosome 1 and has several interesting phenotypic characteristics including fruit with orange color, high levels of soluble ...
Identification of potato Y potyvirus (PVY°) resistance in wild and cultivated tomatoes
Potato Y potyvirus (PVY) is an important plant pathogen worldwide that infects and causes yield losses in the family Solanaceae including potato (Solarium tuberosum), pepper (Capsicum spp.), tomato (S. lycopersicum), and ...
NaCl tolerance in Lycopersicon pennellii introgression lines: QTL related to physiological responses
The growth and ion content of salt sensitive Lycopersicon esculentum Mill. cv. M82 and salt tolerant L. pennellii Correll accession LA716 were examined under both control and stress conditions (150 mM NaCl). L. esculentum ...
