Barcode DNA length polymorphisms vs fatty acid profiling for adulteration detection in olive oil
The aim of this study was to compare the performance of a DNA-barcode assay with fatty acid profile analysis to authenticate the botanical origin of olive oil. To achieve this aim, we performed a PCR-capillary electrophoresis ...
Exploration of three Solanum species for improvement of antioxidant traits in tomato
(American Society for Horticultural Science, 2014-08)
Wild tomato species have been widely used for improvement of tomato disease resistance but have not been extensively explored for health-related traits. In this work, three interspecific populations derived from backcrosses ...
Development of a SNP-based CAPS assay for the Me1 gene conferring resistance to root knot nematode in pepper
Root knot nematodes (Meloidogyne spp.) are significant agricultural pests on many crops, including pepper (Capsicum annuum). Host plant resistance offers the most sustainable means of controlling this pest. A cluster of ...
Morphological and molecular diversity in Turkish sesame germplasm and core set selection
(Crop Science Society of America, 2015)
The conservation of plant germplasm is essential to ensure future breeding gains and crop bio-diversity. To be truly useful, such germplasm must be characterized for morphological traits and genetic diversity. In this work, ...
Genome-wide SNP discovery and QTL mapping for fruit quality traits in inbred backcross lines (IBLs) of solanum pimpinellifolium using genotyping by sequencing
(BioMed Central, 2017-01)
Background: Solanum pimpinellifolium has high breeding potential for fruit quality traits and has been used as a donor in tomato breeding programs. Unlocking the genetic potential of S. pimpinellifolium requires high-throughput ...
