Exploring wild alleles from Solanum pimpinellifolium with the potential to improve tomato flavor compounds
Most consumers complain about the flavor of current tomato cultivars and many pay a premium for alternatives such as heirloom varieties. Breeding for fruit flavor is difficult because it is a quantitatively inherited trait ...
Transcriptomic analysis of selenium accumulation in Puccinellia distans (Jacq.) Parl., a boron hyperaccumulator
Selenium (Se) is present in a wide variety of natural and man-made materials on Earth. Plants are able to tolerate and (hyper)accumulate Se to different extents. In fact, some species can tolerate and accumulate multiple ...
Development of simple sequence repeat markers in hazelnut (Corylus avellana L.) by next-generation sequencing and discrimination of Turkish hazelnut cultivars
European hazelnut (Corylus avellana) is a diploid tree species and is widely used in confections. Hazelnuts are, to a large part, produced in Turkey with the cultivar "Tombul" widely grown in the Black Sea region. In this ...
Association mapping of agro-morphological traits in European hazelnut (Corylus avellana)
More than half of European hazelnut (Corylus avellana) production occurs in Turkey. Despite this dominance, the yield of Turkish cultivars has remained stagnant over the past 10years with Italian yield nearly double that ...
Analysis of European hazelnut (Corylus avellana) reveals loci for cultivar improvement and the effects of domestication and selection on nut and kernel traits
Turkey is a rich source of European hazelnut (Corylus avellana) germplasm with nearly 400 accessions in the national collection. This genetic material encompasses cultivars, landraces and wild genotypes which were characterized ...
Mapping of quantitative trait loci for antioxidant molecules in tomato fruit: Carotenoids, vitamins C and E, glutathione and phenolic acids
The nutritional value of a crop lies not only in its protein, lipid, and sugar content but also involves compounds such as the antioxidants lycopene, beta-carotene and vitamin C. In the present study, wild tomato Solanum ...
