    A Simple Protocol for Informative Visualization of Enriched Gene Ontology Terms
    Authors:  Titouan Bonnot, Morgane B. Gillard and Dawn H. Nagel, date: 11/20/2019, view: 3765, Q&A: 1
    In genome-scale datasets, Gene Ontology (GO) enrichment is a common analysis to highlight functions over-represented or under-represented in a subset of differentially expressed genes to elucidate the biological significance of the results. However, ...
    Fluorescence Immunolocalization in Mitotic Chromosome Spreads from Maize Embryos
    Authors:  Jing-Han Liu, Ya-zhong Wang, Lin Chen and Yan He, date: 06/20/2019, view: 1455, Q&A: 0
    Immunolocalization is a necessary technique in the study of chromosome structure and function. It can provide important information for better understanding the relation between epigenetic modifications and chromosome condensation. In this protocol, ...
    A Simplified Hydroponic Culture of Arabidopsis
    Authors:  Houqing Zeng, Chao Xia, Cankui Zhang and Li-Qing Chen, date: 12/20/2018, view: 5374, Q&A: 0
    Hydroponic culture systems are widely used in research due to their intrinsic properties, such as easily altering nutrient composition, applying chemical treatments like metal, salt and hormones in the growth media, and collecting the root sample. ...
    Quantification of Root Colonizing Bacteria
    Authors:  Maged M. Saad, Axel de Zélicourt, Eleonora Rolli , Lukas Synek and Heribert Hirt , date: 07/20/2018, view: 2882, Q&A: 0
    Here we describe a simple method to quantify the number of viable bacteria (e.g., Enterobacter sp. SA187) that colonize the root system of Arabidopsis thaliana.
    RNA Immunoprecipitation (RIP) Sequencing of Pri-miRNAs Associated with the Dicing Complex in Arabidopsis
    Authors:  Ziwei Li, Songxiao Zhong, Wenye Wu and Binglian Zheng, date: 07/05/2018, view: 4133, Q&A: 0
    RNA immunoprecipitation (RIP) is an antibody-based technique used to map in vivo RNA-protein interactions. DBR1, an RNA debranching enzyme, is responsible for the debranching of lariat RNA, for the degradation and turnover of lariat RNAs. ...
    Root Gall Formation, Resting Spore Isolation and High Molecular Weight DNA Extraction of Plasmodiophora brassicae
    Authors:  Sara Mehrabi, Suzana Stjelja and Christina Dixelius, date: 06/05/2018, view: 3777, Q&A: 0
    Isolation of DNA from obligate biotrophic soil-borne plant pathogens is challenging. This is because of their strict requirement of living plant tissue for their growth and propagation. A soil habitat further imposes risk of contamination from other ...
    Leaf Clearing Protocol to Observe Stomata and Other Cells on Leaf Surface
    Author:  Nidhi Sharma, date: 09/05/2017, view: 12673, Q&A: 1
    In this protocol, leaves are cleared and fixed in an ethanol and acetic acid solution, and mounted in Hoyer’s solution. The cleared leaves are imaged under differential interference contrast (DIC) microscope. This protocol is beneficial for studying ...
    Extraction of Root Apoplastic Wall Fluid for Apoplastic Peroxidase Activity Assay
    Author:  Xiyan Li, date: 09/05/2011, view: 14348, Q&A: 0
    Plant roots secret a lot of peroxidases to counteract environmental influences. This protocol describes a way to extract root apoplastic wall fluid from Arabidopsis plants and to determine the peroxidase activity using guaiacol as substrate.
    Arabidopsis Growing Protocol – A General Guide
    Author:  Xiyan Li, date: 09/05/2011, view: 31342, Q&A: 1
    Arabidopsis as the model organism for higher plants is widely studied among plant biology labs around the world. However, taking care of this tiny plant may not be trivial. Here is a general guide used for the Heven Sze lab at the University of ...
    Extract Genomic DNA from Arabidopsis Leaves (Can be Used for Other Tissues as Well)
    Author:  Yongxian Lu, date: 07/05/2011, view: 26947, Q&A: 1
    This is a simple protocol for isolating genomic DNA from fresh plant tissues. DNA from this experiment can be used for all kinds of genetics studies, including genotyping and mapping. This protocol uses Edward’s extraction buffer to isolate DNA.
