    • Comparative genome analysis of Burkholderia phytofirmans PsJN reveals a wide spectrum of endophytic lifestyles based on interaction strategies with host plants 

      Mitter, Birgit; Petric, Alexandra; Shin, Maria W.; Chain, Patrick S. G.; Hauberg-Lotte, Lena; Reinhold-Hurek, Barbara; Nowak, Jerzy; Sessitsch, Angela (Frontiers, 2013-04-30)
      Burkholdena phytohanans PsJN is a naturally occurring plant-associated bacterial endophyte that effectively colonizes a wide range of plants and stimulates their growth and vitality. Here we analyze whole genomes, of PsJN ...
    • De novo Transcriptome Analysis and Molecular Marker Development of Two Hemarthria Species 

      Huang, Xiu; Yan, Hai-Dong; Zhang, Xin-Quan; Zhang, Jian; Frazier, Taylor P.; Huang, De-Jun; Lu, Lu; Huang, Lin-Kai; Liu, Wei; Peng, Yan; Ma, Xiao; Yan, Yan-Hong (Frontiers, 2016-04-18)
      Hemarthria R. Br. is an important genus of perennial forage grasses that is widely used in subtropical and tropical regions. Hemarthria grasses have made remarkable contributions to the development of animal husbandry and ...
    • The Photosynthesis, Na+/K+ Homeostasis and Osmotic Adjustment of Atriplex canescens in Response to Salinity 

      Pan, Ya-Qing; Guo, Huan; Wang, Suo-Min; Zhao, Bingyu; Zhang, Jin-Lin; Ma, Qing; Yin, Hong-Ju; Bao, Ai-Ke (Frontiers, 2016-06-17)
      Atriplex canescens (fourwing saltbush) is a C-4 perennial fodder shrub with excellent resistance to salinity. However, the mechanisms underlying the salt tolerance in A. canescens are poorly understood. In this study, ...
    • Genome Reduction in Tetraploid Potato Reveals Genetic Load, Haplotype Variation, and Loci Associated With Agronomic Traits 

      Manrique-Carpintero, Norma C.; Coombs, Joseph J.; Pham, Gina M.; Laimbeer, F. Parker E.; Braz, Guilherme T.; Jiang, Jiming; Veilleux, Richard E.; Buell, C. Robin; Douches, David S. (2018-07-03)
      The cultivated potato (Solanum tuberosum) has a complex genetic structure due to its autotetraploidy and vegetative propagation which leads to accumulation of mutations and a highly heterozygous genome. A high degree of ...
    • The Sol Genomics Network (SGN)-from genotype to phenotype to breeding 

      Fernandez-Pozo, Noe; Menda, Naama; Edwards, Jeremy D.; Saha, Surya; Tecle, Isaak Y.; Strickler, Susan R.; Bombarely, Aureliano; Fisher-York, Thomas; Pujar, Anuradha; Foerster, Hartmut; Yan, Aimin; Mueller, Lukas A. (2015-01-28)
      The Sol Genomics Network (SGN, http://solgenomics.net) is a web portal with genomic and phenotypic data, and analysis tools for the Solanaceae family and close relatives. SGN hosts whole genome data for an increasing number ...
    • Using host‐associated differentiation to track source population and dispersal distance among insect vectors of plant pathogens 

      Angelella, Gina Marie; Michel, Andy P.; Kaplan, Ian (Wiley, 2018)
      Small, mobile insects are notoriously challenging to track across landscapes and manage in agricultural fields. However, genetic differentiation among insect populations and host plants acquired through host‐associated ...
    • Rhizosphere bacterial communities of dominant steppe plants shift in response to a gradient of simulated nitrogen deposition 

      Yang, An; Liu, Nana; Tian, Qiuying; Bai, Wenming; Williams, Mark A.; Wang, Qibing; Li, Linghao; Zhang, Wen-Hao (Frontiers, 2015-08-12)
      We evaluated effects of 9-year simulated nitrogen (N) deposition on microbial composition and diversity in the rhizosphere of two dominant temperate grassland species: grass Stipa krylovii and forb Artemisia frigida. ...
