Identification of Insertion Site by RESDA-PCR in Chlamydomonas Mutants Generated by AphVIII Random Insertional Mutagenesis
Authors:  Fantao Kong and Yonghua Li-Beisson, date: 02/05/2018, view: 435, Q&A: 0
Chlamydomonas reinhardtii is frequently used as a model organism to study fundamental processes in photosynthesis, metabolism, and flagellar biology. Versatile tool boxes have been developed for this alga (Fuhrmann et al., 1999; ...

Automatic Leaf Epidermis Assessment Using Fourier Descriptors in Texture Images
The identification of plant species is not a trivial task, since it is carried out by experts and depends on the presence of fruits, flowers and leaves. However, fruits and flowers are not available throughout the year, while leaves are accessible ...
