    Keywords : Protoplast; Sweetpotato; Isolation; Transformation; Regeneration; Callus; Propagation; In-vitro; Solanales; Celluase; Cell; Plant; Leaf; Petiole; Biotechnology; Biology and Life Sciences;

    Abstract : Med målet att utvärdera en mindre restriktiv teknik för genmodifiering i sötpotatis (Ipomoea batatas), både gällande ekonomiska begränsningar såväl som det tid och energi bemödande som ett sådant projekt oundvikligen påbrår, har vi arbetat flitigt med att etablera optimerade parameters för protoplast isolation och fortsättningsvis också utforskat lovande protokoll för transformation och regeneration av dessa protoplaster, för att slutligen framställa nya genotyper. Således har en extensiv litteraturundersökning av tidigare publicerade protokoll, varav explantor från sötpotatis men också relaterade arter inom Solanales ordningen har diskuterats, utfärdades varefter datan analyserades via diverse avancerade statistiska modeller.

  3. 3. 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

  4. 4. Effects of Vacuum Impregnation with Various Substances in Combination with Pulsed Electric Field to Improve the Freezing Tolerance of Arugula Leaves

    Abstract : As of 2020 an estimated number of 821 million people across the world are undernourished and that figure is expected to grow by 2 billion before the end of 2050 (United Nations Sustainable Development 2020). Despite this, every year over 1/3 of food produced globally is disposed of without consumption (Global Panel on Agriculture and Food Systems for Nutrition 2018), and the actual number might be much higher.
