    Cherry fruit developmental analysis

    Evaluating genetic and environmental effects upon sweet cherry cultivars differing in seasonal duration and fruit size, Gibeau et al. employ photographic measurements to apply a framework of biological time indices demarcated by the degrees of growth of reproductive buds, ovarian volume and pits from dormancy to maturation. The initial growth phase is defined by the […] More

    Tomato responses to resistance inducers and a biotrophic pathogen

    Strategies for protecting tomato plants against pathogens include treatment with synthetic chemicals or pathogen-derived compounds and transfer of resistance genes from wild species. Satkova et al. analysed expression of 45 genes involved in defence mechanisms in wild and cultivated tomatoes contrasting in resistance to the biotrophic pathogen Oidium neolycopersici. Differences in gene basal expression were […] More
