Obtaining functional data is an essential component in understanding mechanisms underlying morphological variation. Virus-induced gene silencing (VIGS) is a reverse genetic technique for identifying the function of target loci through viral mediated transcript knockdown. Here we introduce this...
Genetic Analysis of Lignification and Secondary Wall Development in Bast Fibers of Industrial Hemp (Cannabis sativa)Download
Industrial hemp (Cannabis sativa) is a highly productive crop that is well suited to cultivation in Canada. To better understand the development of bast (phloem) fiber secondary walls and to facilitate reverse genetics screening for improved germplasm, I undertook two sets of microarray...
Pollination biology and transcriptomics of Cleomaceae species exhibiting different pollination systemsDownload
Pollinator mediated-selection is responsible for much of the phenotypic diversity exhibited by flowers. Flowering plants or angiosperms that attract a diverse range of pollinators represent a generalist pollination system in which selection is exerted by many different pollinators. However,...
