    Rapid Induction of Water Stress in Wheat
    Authors:  Harish Manmathan and Nora L.V. Lapitan, date: 08/20/2013, view: 7897, Q&A: 0
    [Abstract] Traditional water stress evaluation studies in wheat are time consuming and can take up to several months to finish. A rapid phenotypic screening for water stress is important for accommodating time-bound water stress studies such as transient gene silencing studies in wheat. This method explains a procedure to induce water stress in young wheat ...
    Detection of DNA Methylation Changes Surrounding Transposable Elements
    Authors:  Beery Yaakov and Khalil Kashkush, date: 06/05/2013, view: 7675, Q&A: 0
    [Abstract] Transposable elements (TEs) are a major component of all genomes, thus the epigenetic mechanisms controlling their activity is an important field of study. Cytosine methylation is one of the factors regulating the transcription and transposition of TEs, alongside Histone modifications and small RNAs. Adapter PCR-based methods [such as Amplified ...
    High Resolution Detection of Genetic Changes Associated with Transposons
    Authors:  Beery Yaakov and Khalil Kashkush, date: 06/05/2013, view: 6439, Q&A: 0
    [Abstract] Transposable elements (TEs) are repetitive sequences, capable of inducing genetic mutations through their transpositional activity, or by non-homologous or illegitimate recombination. Because of their similarity and often high copy numbers, examining the effects of mutations caused by TEs in different samples (tissues, individuals, species, etc.) ...
