  1. 1. Screening of early root growth characteristics in seedlings of Nordic spring barley : utilization of hydroponics and GWAS for identification of QTLs and candidate genes for root traits

    University essay from SLU/Dept. Of Plant Breeding

    Author : Karl-Johan Fabo; [2021]
    Keywords : spring barley; plant breeding; root growth; early vigor; seminor roots; GWAS; QTL; quantitative traits; quantitative genetics; marker-assisted breeding; hydroponics;

    Abstract : In the Nordic countries, the cultivation of barley (Hordeum vulgare L.) has a long history, and as one of the major cereals in the world, barley is of global importance for food security. The world population is growing, which naturally will increase demands for agricultural outputs. READ MORE

  2. 2. Identification of Mutations in Genes Regulating Culm Length in Malting Barley

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Examensarbeten i molekylärbiologi

    Author : Emma Thorell; [2016]
    Keywords : Biology and Life Sciences;

    Abstract : Lodging, the tendency in barley to lie down on the ground when exposed to hail and heavy fertilising, is one of the most important traits that barley breeding is trying to remove from the barley cultivars. This may be an even greater challenge when future climate changes may lead to more extreme weather leading to more severe storms with heavy rain and hail. READ MORE

  3. 3. Genome wide association study of milk composition traits in Swedish Red cows

    University essay from SLU/Dept. of Animal Breeding and Genetics

    Author : Yohannes Goitom Tesfayonas; [2014]
    Keywords : Milk composition; single nucleotide polymorphism SNP ; GWAS;

    Abstract : The aim of this study was to detect QTLs that affect milk composition traits such as fat yield, fat percent, citric acid, free fatty acids as well as milk properties like fat globule size, and determine the phenotypic variation explained by the QTLs. These traits play a crucial role in nutritional and technological properties of milk and its products. READ MORE

  4. 4. Analysis of oil content in the transgenic lines and wild-type of Lepidium campestre

    University essay from SLU/Department of Biosystems and Technology (from 130101)

    Author : Philip Berg; [2014]
    Keywords : Lepidium campestre; Oljeanalys; Gaskromathografi; Vitrioscilla; Hemoglobingen;

    Abstract : The world's population is increasing and will be reaching up to 9 billion by 2050. More food needs to be produced in order to satisfy the growing demand in the future. Meanwhile there are increased focuses on the food we produce, which are healthier and have less negative impact on the environment. READ MORE

  5. 5. Fine mapping of resistance against root aphids in sugar beet

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

    Author : Emma Leijman; [2011]
    Keywords : Resistance; Sequencing; Mapping; Molecular marker; Single-nucleotide polymorphism; SNP; Genome sequence; Breeding; Root aphids; Pemphigus betae; Sugar beet;

    Abstract : Sugar beet, Beta vulgaris, is an important crop for the global sugar industry being one of the two major crops cultivated for sugar production. In the USA, the sugar beet root aphid, Pemphigus betae, is a regionally occurring pest which damages sugar beets by feeding on their secondary roots which results in reduced biomass and hence a lower yield.
