Beany flavor of soybean (Glycine max (L.) Merr.) is caused by oxidation of polyunsaturated fatty acids by the action of three lipoxygenases (LOX1, LOX2 and LOX3) present in mature seeds. The unpleasant flavor restricts human consumption of soybean products. This problem could be solved through genetic elimination of alleles that code these enzymes. Parental cultivars and two hybrid population were selected and analyzed using genetic markers for alleles locus, encoding Lox1, Lox2 and Lox3 free. The SSR marker Satt212 confirmed the presence of the homozygous null-allele Lx3 in the cultivar BRS 213, which were used for hybridization with BR 36. Heterozygote F1 hybrid plants and homozygous Lx3 lines in F2 segregating populations were successfully identified. The SSR markers Sat090 and Sat417 was the most effective diagnostic marker among the all SSR markers tested. Satt090 and Satt417 confirmed the presence of the homozygous Lx2 null-allele in the parental cultivar BRS 213 by flanking Lx2 loci at 3,00 and 2,77 cM, respectively. The presence of Lx2 null allele in The F2 segregating populations between BRS 213 and BRS 155 were successfully identified with a selection efficiency of 98% and have great potential for further application in the Brazilian breeding program aimed at improving soybean seed quality.

Green gram (Vigna radiata (L.) wilczek,) commonly known as moong or mung bean or golden gram was introduced to Eritrea as a pulse crop by Ministry of Agriculture at its National Agricultural Research Institute (NARI) in collaboration with Association for Strengthening Agricultural Research in Eastern and Central Africa (ASARECA) in 2012. But its agronomic practices for semi-arid conditions of Eritrea are not yet standardised. Therefore , to find the optimum inter row spacing and phosphorus dose for its higher productivity ,a field experiment was conducted at the experimental farm of Hamelmalo Agricultural College, Keren, Eritrea during summer 2015 and 2016. The experiment was conducted in randomised complete block design (RCBD) with 12 treatment combinations of two factors consisting of four inter row spacing (Broadcast, 18cm, 30cm, and 45cm) and three phosphorus levels (0, 20 and 40 kg P2O5 ha-1) each replicated thrice. The results of the study revealed that sowing of K-26 bold seeded variety either by broadcast method or at 18cm inter row spacing at10cm plant to plant spacing fertilized with 40kg P2O5 ha-1 through DAP fertilizer drilled at the time of sowing proved significantly superior to increase growth, yield attributes and seed yield of green gram.

We evaluated a novel and non-destructive method of the electrical impedance spectroscopy (EIS) to elucidatethe genetic and evolutionary relationship of homoploid hybrid conifer of Pinus densata (P.d) and its parental species Pinus tabuliformis (P.t) and Pinus yunnanensis(P.y), as well as the artificial hybrids of the P.t and P.y. Field common garden tests of96 trees sampled from 760 seedlings and 480 EIS records of 1,440 needles assessed the interspecific variation of the P.d, P.t, P.y and the artificial hybrids. We found that (1) EIS at different frequencies diverged significantly among germplasms; P.ywasthe highest, P.t was the lowest, and their artificial hybrids were within the range of P.t and P.y; (2) maternal species effect of EIS magnitudes inthe hybrids and P.d was stronger than the paternal species characteristics; (3)EIS of the artificial hybrid confirmed the mid-parent and partial maternal species characteristics;(4) unified exponential modelof EIS for the interspecific and hybrids canbe constructedas; (5) cluster analysis for species and hybrid combinationsin total corroborated with the previous hybrid model ofPinus densata. Our non-destructive EIS method complemented the previous finding that Pinus densata was originated from P.t and P.y. We conclude that the impedance would be a viable indicator to investigate the interspecific genetic variations of conifers.

Members of the ERF Family of Transcription Factors play an important role in plant development and gene expression that regulates responses to biotic and abiotic stress. This work identified 36 ERF family genes in Coffea arabica within the AP2/ERF full domain, using the EST-based genomic resource of the Brazilian Coffee Genome Project. The ERF family genes were classified into nine of the ten existing groups through phylogenetic analysis of the deduced amino acid sequences and comparison with the sequences of the ERF family genes in Arabidopsis. In addition to the AP2 domain, other conserved domains were identified, typical of members of each group. The in silico analysis and expression profiling showed high levels of expression for libraries derived from tissues of fruits, leaves and flowers as well as for libraries subjected to water stress. These results suggest the participation of the ERF family genes of C. arabica in distinct biological functions, such as control of development, maturation and responses to water stress. The results of this work imply in the selection of promising genes for further functional characterizations that will provide a better understanding of the complex regulatory networks related to plant development and responses to stress, opening up opportunities for coffee breeding programs.

Our study consists of a careful literature review carried out with the aim of better understanding the models developed in the field of biocontrol of post-harvest fungal rot in apples (PHFRA) over the past two decades. It aims, more specifically, to shed light on the progress made by examining the products developed, their nature, their target pathogens, their effectiveness, theirs modes of action and the stage of their development.The post-harvest biocontrol of apples has made remarkable progress during the last twenty years of research. Several products (yeasts, bacteria, filamentous fungi and actinomycetes) have been selected. Some, are already marketed, others are at different stages of development.However, several points limit the optimal use of microbial antagonists in the bio-management of post-harvest apple rots as an alternative to chemicals. It is, in fact, still necessary to develop appropriate formulations of these microbial biocontrolagents, to better study their mechanisms of action, to test them under commercial conditions and against a broad spectrum of pathogens and hosts.However, although sometimes considered less effective than chemical treatments, biocontrol products based on microorganisms have major advantages for an application in an integrated post-harvest apple protection strategy.

The establishment and development of artificial seed technology is to quickly reproduce excellent varieties or hybrids, which can be applied to hybrid generation seeds produced by the three-two line method. For some varieties that are difficult to propagate with seeds or plant species with unstable genetic traits and poor fertility, artificial seed technology can also be used for mass reproduction. In particular, some new plants created through genetic engineering, such as somatic hybrids or transgenic plants, can be propagated or maintained by artificial seed technology. In addition, artificial seed technology can be used for the maintenance and rapid propagation of virus-free seedlings. Compared with ordinary test tube seedlings, artificial seeds have low cost, convenient transportation, and to a certain extent reduce vitrified seedlings. In particular, the production of artificial seeds does not occupy a large amount of soil. It can be produced all year round. Therefore, the research on artificial seeds has developed rapidly in the world.
