Character-State Reconstruction to Infer Ancestral Protein-Protein Interaction Patterns
Authors:  Florian Rümpler, Günter Theißen and Rainer Melzer, date: 08/20/2015, view: 3005, Q&A: 0
Protein-protein interactions are at the core of a plethora of developmental, physiological and biochemical processes. Consequently, insights into the origin and evolutionary dynamics of protein-protein interactions may provide information on the ...

Chromosome Dosage Analysis in Plants Using Whole Genome Sequencing
Authors:  Ek Han Tan, Luca Comai and Isabelle M. Henry, date: 07/05/2016, view: 2453, Q&A: 0
Relative chromosome dosage, i.e., increases or decreases in the number of copies of specific chromosome regions in one sample versus another, can be determined using aligned read-counts from Illumina sequencing (Henry et al. ...

Comprehensive Methods for Leaf Geometric Morphometric Analyses
Authors:  Laura L. Klein and Harlan T. Svoboda, date: 05/05/2017, view: 1219, Q&A: 0
Leaf morphometrics are used frequently by several disciplines, including taxonomists, systematists, developmental biologists, morphologists, agronomists, and plant breeders to name just a few. Leaf shape is highly variable and can be used for ...

Use of Geminivirus for Delivery of CRISPR/Cas9 Components to Tobacco by Agro-infiltration
Authors:  Kangquan Yin, Ting Han and Yule Liu, date: 04/05/2017, view: 1352, Q&A: 0
CRISPR/Cas9 system is a recently developed genome editing tool, and its power has been demonstrated in many organisms, including some plant species (Wang et al., 2016). In eukaryotes, the Cas9/gRNA complexes target genome sites specifically ...
