Large sequence insertion (LSI) is one of the structural variations (SVs) that may cause phenotypic differences in plants. To identify the LSIs using medium-coverage sequencing data of four wild soybean (<i>Glycine soja</i>) genotypes, we designed a hybrid approach combining <i>de novo </i>assembly and read mapping. Total reads and reads with both ends unmapped were independently assembled into "ordinary contigs" and "orphan contigs", respectively, and subjected to pairwise alignment and stringent filtering...

Reductions in growth and quality due to powdery mildew (PM) disease cause significant economic losses in tomato production. Oidium neolycopersici was identified as the fungal species responsible for tomato PM disease in South Korea in the present study, based on morphological and internal transcribed spacer DNA sequence analyses of PM samples collected from two remote regions (Muju and Miryang). The genes involved in resistance to this pathogen in the tomato accession 'KNU-12' (Solanum lycopersicum var. cerasiforme) were evaluated, and the inheritance of PM resistance in 'KNU-12' was found to be conferred via simple Mendelian inheritance of a mutant allele of the PM susceptibility locus Ol-2 (SlMlo1)...

Here, we identified 20 K+ transporter genes in pear (P. bretschneideri) using genome-wide analysis. Their gene structure, chromosomal distribution, conserved motifs, phylogenetics, duplication events, and expression patterns were also examined. The results of phylogenetic analysis showed that PbrKT/HAK/KUP genes were clustered into three major groups (Groups I-III). Among the 20 PbrKT/HAK/KUP genes, 18 were mapped to nine chromosomes and two to scaffolds. Four WGD/segmental gene pairs have been identified, indicating that WGD/segmental duplicationmay have contributed to the expansion of KT/HAK/KUP family in pear...

Aizoaceae is the largest succulent plant family in the world, including in excess of 1800 species. Despite its richness, a large proportion of its taxa are listed as data deficient and it has been identified as the top priority for taxonomic research in South Africa. Limitations to accurate identification of taxa in the family may be partly attributed to the degree of technical knowledge required to identify taxa in the Aizoaceae. DNA barcoding may provide an alternative method of identification; however, the suitability of commonly-used gene regions has not been tested in the family...

SQUAMOSA promoter-binding protein-like (SPL) is a class of plant-specific transcription factors that play critical roles in regulating plant growth and development. However, little systematic research on SPL genes has been conducted in strawberry. In this study, 14 SPL genes were identified in the genome of woodland strawberry (Fragaria vesca), one of the model plants of the family Rosaceae. Chromosome localization analysis indicated that the 14 FvSPL genes were unevenly distributed on six chromosomes. Phylogenetic analysis indicated that the FvSPL proteins could be clustered into six groups (G1 to G6)...

High-resolution mitogenomics of within-species relationships can answer such phylogeographic questions as how species survived the most recent glaciation, as well as identify contemporary factors such as physical barriers, isolation, and gene flow. We examined the mitogenomic population structure of three at-risk species of wolffish: Atlantic (Anarhichas lupus), spotted (A. minor), and northern (A. denticulatus). These species are extensively sympatric across the North Atlantic but exhibit very different life history strategies, a combination that results in concordant and discordant patterns of genetic variation and structure...

Seedlessness is a highly desirable trait in citrus varieties. Sterility is the key determination for seedlessness formation. However, the molecular basis for female sterility in seedless mandarin remains unclear. Thus, a seedless Ponkan mandarin (Citrus reticulata Blanco 'Lipeng No.2'), considered the bud mutation of normal seedy Ponkan, was collected to identify candidate genes involved in seedless variation. Suppression subtractive hybridization (SSH) screened 1091 uniESTs related to seedy and seedless Ponkan (727 singlets and 364 contigs), which mainly governed catalytic activity, transferase activity, and oxygen binding...
