De novo assembly and functional annotation of Myrciaria dubia fruit transcriptome reveals multiple metabolic pathways for L-ascorbic acid biosynthesis
Background Myrciaria dubia is an Amazonian fruit shrub that produces numerous bioactive phytochemicals, but is best known by its high L-ascorbic acid (AsA) content in fruits. Pronounced variation in AsA content has been ...
Metabolic engineering of Saccharomyces cerevisiae to produce 1-hexadecanol from xylose
Background An advantageous but challenging approach to overcome the limited supply of petroleum and relieve the greenhouse effect is to produce bulk chemicals from renewable materials. Fatty alcohols, with a billion-dollar ...
Applications of High-Resolution Imaging for Open Field Container Nursery Counting
Frequent inventory data of container nurseries is needed by growers to ensure proper management and marketing strategies. In this paper, inventory data are estimated from aerial images. Since there are thousands of nursery ...
Mapping foliage damage index and monitoring of Pieris brassicae by using GIS-GPS technology in cole crops
Experiments were conducted from 2012-2014 to develop the georefrenced maps on cole crops for observing foliage damage index (FDI) and hot spots for cabbage butterfly in Ganderbal, Budgam, Anantnag, Srinagar, Kulgam, Baramulla ...
A Machine Learning Approach to Predict Gene Regulatory Networks in Seed Development in Arabidopsis
(Frontiers Media, 2016-12-23)
Gene regulatory networks (GRNs) provide a representation of relationships between regulators and their target genes. Several methods for GRN inference, both unsupervised and supervised, have been developed to date Because ...

Pedogenic Carbonates and Radiocarbon Isotopes of Organic Carbon at Depth in the Russian Chernozem
Conversion of native grasslands to agricultural sites has resulted in remarkable changes in soil carbon at depth, but its impact on soil diagnostic horizons is unknown. This study was conducted to radiocarbon date the soil ...
Evaluation of Quality Parameters in Gluten-Free Bread Formulated with Breadfruit (Artocarpus altilis) Flour
Flour from the fruit of breadfruit trees (Artocarpus altilis) holds the potential to serve as a wheat flour replacement in gluten-free product formulations. This study evaluated the impact of breadfruit flour and leavening ...
Genome Landscape and Evolutionary Plasticity of Chromosomes in Malaria Mosquitoes
Background: Nonrandom distribution of rearrangements is a common feature of eukaryotic chromosomes that is not well understood in terms of genome organization and evolution. In the major African malaria vector Anopheles ...
