Reviewing candidate genes for aliphatic glucosinolate biosynthesis
Crambe abyssinica is a specialty crop that produces an industrial type of seed-oil. This oil is composed of around 60% of a specific fatty acid, erucic acid (C22:1), and can be used as an industrial lubricant or as raw material fo ...

Breeding for attraction of natural enemies
Many plants release herbivore-induced plant volatiles (HIPVs) upon attack by a pest insect. These HIPVs can be used by natural enemies of the herbivores, both parasitoids and predators, as cues to locate their prey. The attraction ...

Study of break of dormancy in diploid potato
Potato is the most important non-cereal crop in the world. It is vegetatively propagated from seed tubers. After the onset of tuberization, the tubers undergo a period of dormancy. During this stage, bud growth is suppressed. Seve ...

Initiation of fruiting body formation in Oyster mushroom on a commercial farm
WUR Plant Breeding has developed non-sporulating varieties of Oyster mushroom. This has meant a huge improvement of the working conditions in this industry, as inhaling basidiospores of this mushroom on a daily basis can cause lun ...
