Selection and hybridization shaped the rapid spread of African honey bee ancestry in the Americas

2020-10-19 17:50:50 UTC

Selection and hybridization shaped the rapid spread of African honey bee ancestry in the AmericasAuthor summary Crop pollination around the world relies on native and introduced honey bee populations, which vary in their behaviors and climatic ranges. Scutellata-European hybrid honey bees (also known as Africanized honey bees) have been some of the mos Read more at Plos.org


Mosaic fungal individuals have the potential to evolve within a single generation

2020-10-19 00:00:00 UTC

Mosaic fungal individuals have the potential to evolve within a single generationAlthough cells of mushroom-producing fungi typically contain paired haploid nuclei (n+n), most Armillaria gallica vegetative cells are uninucleate. As vegetative nuclei are produced by fusions of paired haploid nuclei, they are thought to be diploid (2n). H Read more at Nature.com


Epigenetic regulation of gene expression improves Fusarium head blight resistance in durum wheat

2020-10-19 00:00:00 UTC

Epigenetic regulation of gene expression improves Fusarium head blight resistance in durum wheatEight advanced durum-breeding lines were treated with 5-methyl-azacytidine to test the feasibility of generating sources of Fusarium head blight (FHB) resistance. Of the 800 treated seeds, 415 germinated and were advanced up to four (M4) generations by selfin Read more at Nature.com
