Assessing Status of and Resistance to Phytophthora Root Rot on True Fir (Abies spp.)
Many fir species (Abies) are susceptible to Phytophthora Root Rot (PRR). Poor drainage and standing water facilitate pathogen survival, proliferation, and spore dispersal. Disease is caused by numerous Phytophthora spp. ...
LIPID PRODUCTION, PHOTOSYNTHESIS ADJUSTMENT AND CARBON PARTITIONING OF MICROALGA CHLORELLA SOROKINIANA CULTURED UNDER MIXOTROPHIC AND HETEROTROPHIC CONDITIONS
Microalgae have attracted growing attention for renewable biofuel production. In this work, microalga Chlorella sorokiniana was explored for its potential for lipid production. The results showed that C. sorokiniana could ...
Varietal differences in water relations of wine grapes
Wine grape varieties are classified by their water stress response in two groups: Isohydric varieties showing high and constant water status under drought due to highly sensitive stomata and anisohydric varieties showing ...
EFFICACY TESTING OF FOOD INDUSTRY CLEANING AGENTS ON THE REMOVAL OF ENGINEERED NANOPARTICLES FROM THE SKINS OF GRAPE TOMATOES (SOLANUM LYCOPERSICUM) USING ATTENUATED TOTAL REFLECTION FOURIER TRANSFORM INFRARED SPECTROSCOPY (ATR FT-IR) AND SUPPORT VECTOR MACHINE (SVM) LEARNING
This study used regulatory-approved food industry cleaning agents to test removal efficiency of engineered nanoparticles from the surfaces of ready-to-eat produce. Grape tomatoes (Solanum lycopersicum) provided the food ...
RECTAL MICROBIOTA DYNAMICS IN PRE-WEANED DAIRY CALVES DEPENDING ON COLOSTRUM INTAKE, PRESENCE OF DIARRHEA AND ANTIBIOTIC TREATMENT
The mammalian intestine microbial community carries out many functions contributing to host's defense from infectious diseases, nutrition, growth, immunodevelopment and immunomodulation. Several factors such as diet, age, ...
Development, Optimization and Validation of Targeted and Global Metabolite Profiling Strategies for Probing Plant Metabolism
Metabolomics is the attempt to comprehensibly identify and quantify all metabolites in a cell, tissue or organism, which is a tremendous challengedue to the enormous chemical diversity found in living systems, particularly ...
IDENTIFICATION OF QUANTITATIVE TRAIT LOCI (QTL) FOR RESISTANCE TO SOIL- BORNE PATHOGENS FUSARIUM CULMORUM AND HETERODERA FILIPJEVI IN WHEAT (TRITICUM AESTIVUM L.)
Wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) is one of the world’s staple crops essential to global food security; however, its profitable production can be threatened by soil-borne diseases. The fungus, Fusarium culmorum, and cereal cyst ...
