  1. 1. A molecular analysis of the interaction between the biocontrol fungus Clonostachys rosea and the cereal pathogen F. graminearum

    University essay from SLU/Dept. of Forest Mycology and Plant Pathology

    Author : Esther Kuper; [2021]
    Keywords : Agrobacterium- mediated transformation; Biocontrol; Clonostachys rosea;

    Abstract : Modern agriculture is increasingly challenged by newly emerging crop diseases- many of them caused by fungal pathogens. At the same time, excessive application of chemical fungicides accelerates the development of resistant pathogen strains and may cause harmful effects on non-target organisms. READ MORE

  2. 2. Evaluation of two transformation protocols for Crambe hispanica subsp. abyssinica

    University essay from SLU/Department of Plant Breeding (from 130101)

    Author : Simon Jeppsson; [2015]
    Keywords : Crambe; transformation; CaDGAT1; floral dip; industrial oil crop; tailored oil quality;

    Abstract : BACKGROUND: Crambe is an oil-crop suitable for industrial purposes and breeding aiming at producing novel oil-qualities may be achieved by genetransformation. Understanding the synthesis of fatty acids and an efficient transformation protocol is of pivotal role in this context. READ MORE

  3. 3. Effector vector design in the Phytophthora infestans-potato pathosystem

    University essay from SLU/Dept. of Plant Biology and Forest Genetics (until 131231)

    Author : Abu Sayeed Tareq; [2012]
    Keywords : Phytophthora infestans; potato genome; effectors; potato pathosystem; effector vector design;

    Abstract : The oomycete pathogen Phytophthora infestans is the causal agent of the devastating plant disease late blight on potato. Diverse type of transposons and many gene families are present in the genome which encodes the effector proteins involved in causing the pathogenicity. READ MORE

  4. 4. In vitro regeneration of four Hypoxis species and transformation of Camelina sativa and Crambe abyssinica

    University essay from SLU/MOVIUM

    Author : Busie Esther Nsibande; [2012]
    Keywords : Agrobacterium; biotechnology; Camelina sativa; Crambe abyssinica; Hypoxis; In vitro propagation; regeneration; transformation; vacuum infiltration;

    Abstract : The advance of science and biotechnology has made it possible to prevent the complete loss of plant species by providing propagation methods that are fast and can result in the mass production of exact copies of the targeted plant species. Genetic transformation has become a useful instrument in the introduction of new traits to plants such as increased yield and disease resistance. READ MORE

  5. 5. Factors affecting Agrobacterium transformation in oat

    University essay from SLU/Plant Breeding and Biotechnology (until 121231)

    Author : Emelie Ivarson; [2011]
    Keywords : Factors; Transformation; Oat; Agrobacterium; Avena sativa;

    Abstract : Oat (Avena sativa L.) is one of the crops that have been cultivated by mankind for the longest time (Lásztity, 1998) and today it is an important and traditional agricultural crop in Northern Europe (Bräutigam et al., 2005). In Sweden, most of the oat is used as feed (Bräutigam et al. READ MORE
