Multienvironment and Multitrait Genomic Selection Models in Unbalanced Early-Generation Wheat Yield Trials
(Crop Science Society of America, 2019-02-21)
The majority of studies evaluating genomic selection (GS) for plant breeding have used single-trait, single-site models that ignore genotype x environment interaction (GEI) effects. However, such studies do not accurately ...
Effect of antibiotic use and composting on antibiotic resistance gene abundance and resistome risks of soils receiving manure-derived amendments
Manure-derived amendments are commonly applied to soil, raising questions about whether antibiotic use in livestock could influence the soil resistome (collective antibiotic resistance genes (ARGs)) and ultimately contribute ...
Physiological Mechanism of Enhancing Salt Stress Tolerance of Perennial Ryegrass by 24-Epibrassinolide
Brassinosteroids (BR) regulate plant tolerance to salt stress but the mechanisms underlying are not fully understood. This study was to investigate physiological mechanisms of 24-epibrassinolide (EBR)'s impact on salt ...
Multilevel Regulation of Abiotic Stress Responses in Plants
The sessile lifestyle of plants requires them to cope with stresses in situ. Plants overcome abiotic stresses by altering structure/morphology, and in some extreme conditions, by compressing the life cycle to survive the ...
Using Hyperspectral and Multispectral Indices to Detect Water Stress for an Urban Turfgrass System
Spectral reflectance measurements collected from hyperspectral and multispectral radiometers have the potential to be a management tool for detecting water and nutrient stress in turfgrass. Hyperspectral radiometers collect ...
Homeostatic response to hypoxia is regulated by the N-end rule pathway in plants.
Plants and animals are obligate aerobes, requiring oxygen for mitochondrial respiration and energy production. In plants, an unanticipated decline in oxygen availability (hypoxia), as caused by roots becoming waterlogged ...
