    • A candidate gene survey of quantitative trait loci affecting chemical composition in tomato fruit 

      Bermúdez, Luisa; Urias, Ursula; Milstein, D.; Kamenetzky, Laura; Asís, Ramón; Fernie, Alisdair R.; Van Sluys, M.A.; Carrari, Fernando; Rossi, Magdalena (Society for Experimental Biology, 2008-07)
      In tomato, numerous wild-related species have been demonstrated to be untapped sources of valuable genetic variability, including pathogen-resistance genes, nutritional, and industrial quality traits. From a collection of ...
    • Genetic dissection of vitamin E biosynthesis in tomato 

      Almeida de Souza, Juliana Beatriz; Quadrana, Leandro Daniel; Asis, Ramón; Setta, Nathalia; Godoy, Fabiana de; Bermúdez, Luisa; Otaiza, Santiago N.; Silva, Junia V. Corrêa da; Fernie, Alisdair R.; Carrari, Fernando; Rossi, Magdalena (Society for Experimental Biology, 2011-07)
      Vegetables are critical for human health as they are a source of multiple vitamins including vitamin E (VTE). In plants, the synthesis of VTE compounds, tocopherol and tocotrienol, derives from precursors of the shikimate ...
    • Identification and validation of QTL for spike fertile floret and fruiting efficiencies in hexaploid wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) 

      Pretini, Nicole; Vanzetti, Leonardo Sebastian; Terrile, Ignacio Ismael; Börner, Andreas; Plieske, Jörg; Ganal, Martin; Röder, Marion; Gonzalez, Fernanda Gabriela (Springer, 2020-06)
      The spike fruiting efficiency (FE—grains per unit spike dry weight at anthesis, GN/SDW) is a promising trait to improve wheat yield potential. It depends on fertile floret efficiency (fertile florets per unit SDW—FFE, ...
    • Mapping QTL for spike fertility and related traits in two doubled haploid wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) populations 

      Pretini, Nicole; Vanzetti, Leonardo Sebastian; Terrile, Ignacio Ismael; Donaire, Guillermo Manuel; Gonzalez, Fernanda Gabriela (BMC, 2021-07)
      Background: In breeding programs, the selection of cultivars with the highest yield potential consisted in the selection of the yield per se, which resulted in cultivars with higher grains per spike (GN) and occasionally ...
    • Phenotyping and QTL mapping for cold tolerance at the germination and seedling stages in Argentine temperate rice 

      Bonell, Martha Lucrecia; Arguissain, Gustavo Gabriel; Crepy, Maria Andrea; Fernandez, Paula Del Carmen; Heinz, Ruth Amelia (Springer, 2020-07)
      In Argentina, the yield potential of rice (Oryza sativa L.) under suboptimal temperatures of temperate regions and during early sowing in tropical regions depends on its low-temperature germinability (LTG) and subsequent ...
