Genome-wide transcriptome analyses of developing seeds from low and normal phytic acid soybean lines
Background Low phytic acid (lpa) crops are potentially eco-friendly alternative to conventional normal phytic acid (PA) crops, improving mineral bioavailability in monogastric animals as well as decreasing phosphate ...
Decomposition, nitrogen and carbon mineralization from food and cover crop residues in the central plateau of Haiti
(Springer International Publishing Ag, 2016-07-04)
Infection and genotype remodel the entire soybean transcriptome
Background High throughput methods, such as high density oligonucleotide microarray measurements of mRNA levels, are popular and critical to genome scale analysis and systems biology. However understanding the results of ...
Talking SMAAC: A New Tool to Measure Soil Respiration and Microbial Activity
Soil respiration measurements are widely used to quantify carbon fluxes and ascertain soil biological properties related to soil microbial ecology and soil health, yet current methods to measure soil respiration either ...
Nitrogen Fertilizer and Growth Regulator Impacts on Tuber Deformity, Rot, and Yield for Russet Potatoes
Potatoes (Solanum tuberosum) are an important high-value commodity for producers in the Mid-Atlantic Region. Current production recommendations were based on white potatoes, and practices for Russet potatoes have not been ...
Comparison of Enterococcus Species Diversity in Marine Water and Wastewater Using Enterolert and EPA Method 1600
EPA Method 1600 and Enterolert are used interchangeably to measure Enterococcus for fecal contamination of public beaches, but the methods occasionally produce different results. Here we assess whether these differences ...
Effect of sample preparation on prediction of fermentation quality of maize silages by near infrared reflectance spectroscopy
Near infrared reflectance spectroscopy (NIRS) has become increasingly used as a rapid, accurate method of evaluating some chemical constituents in cereal grains and forages. If samples could be analyzed without drying and ...
Development and Validation of a UPLC-MS/MS Method to Monitor Cephapirin Excretion in Dairy Cows following Intramammary Infusion
Cephapirin, a cephalosporin antibiotic, is used by the majority of dairy farms in the US. Fecal and urinary excretion of cephapirin could introduce this compound into the environment when manure is land applied as fertilizer, ...
