A Multi-Trait, Meta-analysis for Detecting Pleiotropic Polymorphisms for Stature, Fatness and Reproduction in Beef Cattle (PUBLIC LIBRARY SCIENCE, 2014-03-01)Polymorphisms that affect complex traits or quantitative trait loci (QTL) often affect multiple traits. We describe two novel methods (1) for finding single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) significantly associated with one ...
Transcriptome-wide profiling and expression analysis of transcription factor families in a liverwort, Marchantia polymorpha (BMC, 2013-12-23)BACKGROUND: Transcription factors (TFs) are vital elements that regulate transcription and the spatio-temporal expression of genes, thereby ensuring the accurate development and functioning of an organism. The identification ...
Spatial expression of CLAVATA3 in the shoot apical meristem suggests it is not a stem cell marker in soybean (OXFORD UNIV PRESS, 2013-12-01)CLAVATA3 (CLV3), a stem cell marker in Arabidopsis thaliana, encodes a secreted peptide that maintains the stem cell population within the shoot apical meristem. This work investigated the CLV3 orthologue in a major legume ...
