Natural variation in resistance gene signaling networks of a crop plant
It is common knowledge among plant breeders and also several reports are available which show that disease resistance (R) genes from wild sources, lose their effectivity upon introgression into crops. Apparently, R genes depend on ...

Selection of complementary late blight R gene pairs for cisgenic and organic farming in potato
Late blight, caused by Phytophthora infestans, is the most devastating disease for potato cultivation. Recent restrictions in the use of copper fertilisation as a crop protectant have urged organic farmers to seek their resort in  ...

Tuber formation in diverse Brassica species: cytological observations and gene expression
Brassica’s are characterized by their huge diversity in crop types. Like the cabbages, cauliflowers, turnips and oilseed crops. Several diploid and allopolyploid Brassica species include crops cultivated for their tuber (turnips  ...

Bioinformatics for polyploid crops
Genetic analysis of polyploid crops is much more complex than of diploid species. Software for diploids is available, but for polyploid crops much of the analysis methodology and software still needs to be developed. In addition t ...

Novel CRISPR-Cas systems for Phytophthora resistance in potato
Late blight, caused by the oomycete Phytophthora infestans, is the most devastating disease in potato. Moreover, most of the currently used elite potato varieties are susceptible to late blight. In many wild potato relatives, resi ...

Breeding miscanthus for biofuel production
Biofuels, produced from plant biomass, are a promising and sustainable alternative to fossil fuels. The production of 2nd generation biofuels comprises the release of the structural sugars present in the cell wall and the fermenta ...

Influence of abiotic stresses on miscanthus biomass quality for biofuel production
Biofuels, produced from plant biomass, are a promising and sustainable alternative to fossil fuels. The plant cell wall is the main component of all plant biomass and consists mainly of polymeric sugars. The production of 2nd gen ...

Field experiment to monitor phenotypic development of cabbage plants
Brassica oleracea displays enormous phenotypic variation, including leafy vegetables (cabbage, kale, Brussels sprouts), tuber crops (kohlrabi) and inflorescences (cauliflower, broccoli). Brassica genomes all have undergone a whole ...

Breeding faba bean for plant-based food applications: genetic architecture of off-flavours
Pulses, the dried edible seeds of certain legumes, are increasingly desired by companies as ingredients for plant-based meat/dairy alternatives. Among pulses, faba bean (Vicia Faba L.) is particularly appreciated for its high prot ...

Domestication of diploid potato (in close collaboration with Solynta)
Introduction Diploid hybrid potato breeding is a new paradigm. Already for many decades diploid potato germplasm has been generated, partially by producing di-haploids from tetraploid cultivars and partially by crosses with cro ...
