    • 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, ...
    • 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 ...
