16-18 August 2013

  1. Proceedings

    Genetic control of juvenile growth and botanical architecture in an ornamental woody plant, Prunus mumeSieb. et Zucc. as revealed by a high-density linkage map

    Mei, Prunus mume Sieb. et Zucc., is an ornamental plant popular in East Asia and, as an important member of genus Prunus, has played a pivotal role in systematic studies of the Rosaceae. However, the genetic arch...

  2. Proceedings

    Association mapping for morphological and physiological traits in Populus simonii

    To optimize marker-assisted selection programs, knowledge of the genetic architecture of phenotypic traits is very important for breeders. Generally, most phenotypes, e.g. morphological and physiological trait...

  3. Proceedings

    Allelic variation within the S-adenosyl-L-homocysteine hydrolase gene family is associated with wood properties in Chinese white poplar (Populus tomentosa)

    S-adenosyl-l-homocysteine hydrolase (SAHH) is the only eukaryotic enzyme capable of S-adenosyl-l-homocysteine (SAH) catabolism for the maintenance of cellular transmethylation potential. Recently, biochemical ...

    Analysis of the leaf methylomes of parents and their hybrids provides new insight into hybrid vigor in Populus deltoides

    Plants with heterosis/hybrid vigor perform better than their parents in many traits. However, the biological mechanisms underlying heterosis remain unclear. To investigate the significance of DNA methylation t...
