Unraveling the molecular plumbing for yield in potato
Potato plants form tubers at the tips of underground specialized stems called stolons. The transition to tuberisation is led by an FT-like protein (StSP6A) that is produced in the leaves on specific environmental cues and then mov ...

Set up transformation and regeneration of B. oleracea
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 ...

(Fine-) Mapping Tuber Number and Size distribution in diploid potato
Potato is the most important non-cereal crop. It is mainly vegetatively propagated from seed tuber. Tuber number and size distribution are economically vital traits since they determine the marketable yield and market niche. A gre ...

Optimization transformation protocols for cabbage (Brassica oleracea)
Brassica species display enormous phenotypic variation: B. oleracea for example includes cauliflowers, cabbages, kales and kohlrabi. Brassica genomes all have undergone a whole genome triplication (WGT) which facilitated this phe ...

Reviewing scientific knowledge on the genetics of plant cell walls
Biomass from diverse plant species can be used to produce a range of novel bio-based products, as biofuels, textiles, bioplastics, or constructing materials. The feasibility of using biomass for producing bio-based goods depends l ...

Next Generation Cultivation
For sustainable production, growers follow the trend of "Next Generation Growing” (“Het Nieuwe Telen”) and keep windows in greenhouses more closed, to prevent loss of heat and CO2 and thus save energy. However, closed windows caus ...

Factors affecting water loss (transpiration)
Climate changes might lead to extreme wet or dry circumstances. In dry circumstances, excessive water loss is the main cause of quality loss. Products become wilted, have less nutritive value and may become more susceptible to pa ...

Effect of cuticula/wax layer on wilting (water loss)
Climate changes might lead to extreme wet or dry circumstances. In dry circumstances, excessive water loss is the main cause of quality loss. Products become wilted, have less nutritive value and may become more susceptible to pa ...

Postharvest diseases
Breeders most of the times select for resistance to diseases visible during cultivation (pre-harvest). However, during storage quality of products declines and vegetables/fruits/flowers become more susceptible for pathogen attack. ...

Potential health effects of the consumption of mushrooms
Edible mushrooms may have beneficial effects on human health upon consumption. Especially in East Asian countries there is a firm believe in the health promoting effects of mushrooms and traditional Chinese medicine uses mushrooms ...
