Signaling crosstalk in the Ve-resistance locus of tomato

Influence of Ve1 gene on tomato root size

Verticillium is a fungal pathogen that causes vascular wilt disease in over 200 species of plants, including many crops. The fungus invades through the root and enters the water conducting xylem where it proliferates and rapidly becomes

Getting health allies from agriculture enemies

In recent years, research in nanotechnologies has demonstrated that nanometer-sized particles constructed using a wide array of materials (e.g. metals, lipids, polymers, proteins) can offer answers to unmet questions concerning drug/vaccine delivery. Ideally, these systems should prevent

How plant virus hides from the host cellular degradation machinery

The main goal of obligatory viral parasites is to create the perfect environment for its multiplication. Therefore, the first step is to avoid degradation by the host cellular degradation. Tomato yellow leaf curl virus (TYLCV) is not

Surface-enhanced Raman spectroscopy of genomic DNA from in vitro grown tomato

Conservation of plant genetic resources is necessary for food security and to safeguard biodiversity which is essential for genetic engineering and plant breeding programmes. Conservation of plant resources can be achieved either in their natural habitats (in
