    Abstract: Grape berries metabolites determine wine grape and wine quality. The aim of this work was to determine the metabolite profiles of fruit of mature berries of ‘Cabernet Sauvignon’ of grapes in relation to their growing conditions in high alititude Shangeri-La wine-growing region. Last decade, Proton nuclear magnetic resonance (1H NMR) used to quantif... Show More

    Abstract: Maize breeding programmes exploit inbred lines with superior combining ability for grain yield and other agronomic traits to create competitive hybrids. Therefore, the objectives of this study were to determine heterotic groups of locally developed maize inbred lines, their heterotic relationships, with exotic testers as well as the gene action con...

    Abstract: The genus Begonia is greatly affected by abiotic stresses, which lead to losses in greenhouse production and flower longevity. Obtaining more-tolerant plants is a very important breeding goal in ornamentals. To achieve abiotic tolerant Begonia×tuberhybrida, OsmiR393a, a miRNA involved in the tolerance of plants to abiotic stresses, was introduced u... Show More

    Abstract: Water deficiency is the major limiting factor for potato yield promotion. Increasing tuber yield and decreasing consumption of water at the same time are a challenge in development of new potato cultivar. Deficit irrigation is regarded as one of the promising approaches to solve this problem, however no practical technique has been proposed in pota... Show More

    Abstract: Carnation (Dianthus caryophylinus) is one of the most popular ornamental flowers worldwide. Carnation etched ring virus (CERV), belonging to the Caulimovirus genus, is the second most significant virus on carnation crops around the world. CERV particles are isometric, with a diameter of 47 nm, which contains one double-stranded, circular DNA at the... Show More
