QTL mapping for downy mildew resistance in cucumber inbred line WI7120 (PI 330628)

Host resistance in WI7120 cucumber to prevailing downy mildew pathogen field populations is conferred by two major-effect, one moderate-effect and two minor-effect QTL.

Fine mapping of a major locus controlling plant height using a high-density single-nucleotide polymorphism map in Brassica napus

A saturated map was constructed using SNP markers to fine-map a Brassica napus dominant locus for dwarf mutant onto a 152-kb interval of chromosome A09 containing 14 genes.

Cytochrome P450 associated with insecticide resistance catalyzes cuticular hydrocarbon production in Anopheles gambiae

This study provides of a cuticular mechanism that slow the uptake pyrethroids, contributing to the resistance phenotype and potentially broadening resistance management.

Training on data validation, processing and analysis

In the framework of the Project Plantwise- Plant Clinics in Vietnam, a training course on validation, processing and analysis of data was co-organized by Vietnam Academy of Agricultural Sciences (VAAS) and the Centre for Agriculture and Bioscience International (CABI) from 12-14/7/2016 at VAAS headquarter. The training provided the participants with capacity and knowledge at international qualification in order to operate Plant clinics, to manage and to use data on pests in Vietnam.

Cambodian officials to review impact of farmers` adoption of climate-smart rice

Researchers Identify Characteristics Improving Bean`s Resistance to Drought

Researchers from Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona in Spain and the International Center for Tropical Agriculture (CIAT) in Colombia have identified drought-resistant genotypes and the morpho-physiological characteristics that make beans resistant to drought.

Development of High-Lysine Rice via Expression of a LYSINE RICH PROTEIN Transgene

Lysine (Lys) is an essential amino acid in rice. There have been efforts on improving Lys content in rice, but no products have been developed to date.

Researchers Prove that Nicotine Ruins Appetite of Insects and Herbivorous Mammals
