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 ...
Preliminary phylogeny of the thrips parasitoids of Turkey based on some morphological scales and 28S D2 rDNA, with description of a new species
Species of the Ceranisus thrips-attacking genus are difficult to distinguish morphologically. The phylogenetic relationships within the Ceranisus species were explored using nucleotide sequences of the 28S D2 expansion ...
Quantitative trait loci (QTL) analysis for antioxidant and agronomically important traits in tomato (Lycopersicon esculentum)
Tomato is one of the most widely produced and consumed vegetable crops worldwide. Plant breeders have usually focused on improvement of horticulturally important traits such as yield, fruit size, shape and colour. With ...
Application of EST-SSRS to examine genetic diversity in eggplant and its close relatives
Within the genus Solanum, the term 'eggplant' encompasses several cultivated species that are used for food and, to a lesser extent, for medicine. Th e use of one common name to describe more than one species and the ...
