Small-scale DNA Extraction Method for Maize and Other Plants
Author:  China Lunde, date: 03/20/2018, view: 794, Q&A: 0
Corn, or maize, is a major cereal crop and model monocot. Two of its benefits are ease of pollination and tractable genetics. For a comparison of development between maize and the dicot model, Arabidopsis, see Lunde and Hake, 2005. For an ...

Extraction and 16S rRNA Sequence Analysis of Microbiomes Associated with Rice Roots
Authors:  Joseph Edwards, Christian Santos-Medellín and Venkatesan Sundaresan, date: 06/20/2018, view: 1022, Q&A: 0
Plant roots associate with a wide diversity of bacteria and archaea across the root-soil spectrum. The rhizosphere microbiota, the communities of microbes in the soil adjacent to the root, can contain up to 10 billion bacterial cells per gram of ...
