Biplot analysis of strawberry genotypes recommended for the State of Espírito Santo

A. F. Costa, Teodoro, P. E., Bhering, L. L., Leal, N. R., Tardin, F. D., Daher, R. F., Costa, A. F., Teodoro, P. E., Bhering, L. L., Leal, N. R., Tardin, F. D., and Daher, R. F., Biplot analysis of strawberry genotypes recommended for the State of Espírito Santo, vol. 15, p. -, 2016.

Most strawberry genotypes grown commercially in Brazil originate from breeding programs in the United States, and are therefore not adapted to the various soil and climatic conditions found in Brazil. Thus, quantifying the magnitude of genotype x environment (GE) interactions serves as a primary means for increasing average Brazilian strawberry yields, and helps provide specific recommendations for farmers on which genotypes meet high yield and phenotypic stability thresholds.

Real-time PCR evaluation of cell-free DNA subjected to various storage and shipping conditions

Q. Wang, Cai, Y., Brady, P., and Vermeesch, J. R., Real-time PCR evaluation of cell-free DNA subjected to various storage and shipping conditions, vol. 14, pp. 12797-12804, 2015.

In this study, we attempted to explore the factors affecting the yield of cell-free fetal DNA (cffDNA) obtained from maternal blood samples, including the use of different types of collection tubes, the interval between sample processing, and sample shipping under extreme weather conditions. Blood samples were drawn into K3EDTA tubes and cell-stabilizing tubes (Streck blood collection tube, BCT) from women pregnant with male fetuses.

Genetic variability in agronomic traits of a germplasm collection of hulless barley

X. Q. Zeng, Genetic variability in agronomic traits of a germplasm collection of hulless barley, vol. 14, pp. 18356-18369, 2015.

Germplasm collections represent an important genetic source for crop improvements. In this study, 220 accessions of hulless barley were collected worldwide and their genetic diversity was investigated. Sixteen agronomic traits, including yield and yield components, grain morphology, leaf size, plant height, and lodging resistance, were assessed under field conditions. All studied traits exhibited large variation. Thousand seed weight determined yield, and was strongly affected by spike length and spike number.
