Comparision of two promoters driving transgene expression in water-stressed sugarcane.
For the expression of transgenes in plant cells, appropriate promoter sequences have to be introduced upstream of the gene to ensure efficient transcription. Tissue- or signal-responsive promoters are in high demand in ...
The development of in vitro rooting systems for cold-tolerant Eucalyptus grandis x nitens clones and the assessment of the hydraulic efficiency of roots produced by in vitro vs. cutting propagation.
Hybrid clones of the fast-growing Eucalyptus grandis and cold-tolerant E. nitens (GN clones) have been identified by the South African Forestry Industry as being highly suitable for plantations in cold-dry marginal areas. ...
