Unrevealing the cytological mechanisms and genetic basis underlying the production of unreduced pollen grain in diploid potato
This project aims to unreveal the cytological mechanisms and genetic basis underlying the production of male unreduced gametes (2nG) in potato. The production of 2nG is known to facilitate polyploidization thus playing an impor ...

Metabolic and molecular description of sugar pathway in post-harvested onions (Allium cepa L.)
Onion is one of the most valuable horticultural crops worldwide. Onion is a biennial species that forms a bulb during the first year, which serves as overwintering structure. The shoot apical meristem of the bulb remains dormant f ...

Study possibilities to overcome crossing barriers between leek and thrips resistant wild relatives.
Thrips, Thrips tabaci, is a small insect that causes serious problems in leek, Allium porrum, cultivation. The adults and larvae of this insect feed by sucking the content of the cells, resulting in the appearance of silver grey s ...

Resistance to Colorado Potato Beetle in wild potatoes
Cultivated potato (Solanum tuberosum) is attacked by the Colorado Potato Beetle (CPB). Especially in organic cultivation, where no pesticides can be used, larval feeding causes a lot of damage to plants. Resistance against CPB is  ...

Can we increase the potato yield by extending the life cycle?
Potato is an important world food crop. Despite the efforts of plant breeders and researchers, little progress has been made in improvement of yield. Hybrid breeding is a clear avenue in that it promises to provide new opportuniti ...

Linkage mapping in polyploids using multi-allelic markers
Polyploid crops are species that have more than two copies of the genome. Many important commercial crops are polyploids, including wheat, potato, persimmon, kiwifruit, leek, rose, and chrysanthemum. Compared to the more common di ...

Haplotyping in polyploids
With the development of next generation sequencing, marker-assisted selection is becoming a standard tool in breeding. In diploid crops, molecular markers have been applied widely for genetic mapping and discovery of genomic regio ...

Plant cell walls: from evolutionary genomics to novel breeding tools
The cultivation of locally-adapted orphan crops on marginal lands can be a reliable option to sustainably produce biomass for bio-based applications. However, orphan crops typically lack of breeding tools and genetic resources to  ...

Unravelling traits of spinach (seeds) that improve damping-off tolerance
Worldwide, spinach has to cope with damping-off causing pathogens. For instance, the soil-borne oomycete Pythium ultimum can infect seeds and seedlings before emergence from the soil. Damping-off is most severe under high soil moi ...
