Background Novel strategies for improvement of ornamental plants and their properties relay on miRNA control of differential plant gene expression modulation. Still, in response to the same abiotic stresses, some conserved miRNA families show different expression patterns in different plant species. In parallel, the use of deep sequencing technolog...

This study was endeavoured to contribute in furthering our understanding of the molecular epidemiology of severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) by sequencing and analysing the first full-length genome sequences obtained from 48 coronavirus disease-2019 (COVID-19) patients in five districts in Western Serbia in the period Apri...

Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) analysis has become a widely used method for studying the structure of DNA and RNA, but complexity of the procedure leads to obtaining error-prone datasets which need to be cleansed in order to avoid misinterpretation of data. We address the usage and proper interpretations of characteristic metrics for RNA sequenci...

Bacterial nanocellulose (BNC) stands out among polymers as a promising biomaterial due to its mechanical strength, hydrophilicity, biocompatibility, biodegradability, low toxicity and renewability. The use of scaffolds based on BNC for 3D cell culture has been previously demonstrated. The study exploited excellent properties of the BNC to develop a...

Novel strategies for improvement of plants’ ornamental and other properties relay on miRNA control of differential plant gene expression modulation. Still, in response to the same abiotic stresses, some conserved miRNA families show different expression patterns in different plant species. In parallel, the use of deep sequencing technologies reveal...
Article
One of the strategies for overcoming global climate change threatening to decrease maize yield is early sowing. To contribute to the development of cold‐tolerant hybrids this research focused on the genetic background's comparative analysis in maize inbreds with good combining ability. Leaf whole‐transcriptome sequencing of 46 maize genotypes revea...

In this study the artificial microRNAs (amiRNAs) technology targeting HOS1 gene was tested for its applicability for the improvement of cold stress tolerance in Landsberg-0 (Ler-0) ecotype of Arabidopsis thaliana . The chosen approach was designed to suppress AtHOS1 gene expression through the overexpression of amiRNA-HOS1 . The effect of AtHOS1-am...
Article
Genus Prunus is of great importance for cultivation, mainly because its main species provide fruits and seeds, valuable ornamental qualities and timber. However, stone fruit trees and almonds, major cultivars of genus Prunus, are sensitive to salt stress. Such sensitivity causes losses in stone fruit and almond production (ca. 50% of regular yield...
Article
Crown imperial (CI) has been used in traditional medicine. Today it is known that such beneficial effects are due to its richness in steroidal alkaloids (SA). Using de novo transcriptomics, orthologues/paralogues finder, phylogenetic analysis and tissue- and developmental stage-specific expression analysis, we identified ten genes and several TFs i...
Article
Primary goals of 21st century science involve eco-friendly solutions for detection, control and suppression of plant viruses. Even though we are accumulating knowledge and data on plant viruses’ nucleotide sequences, we are still using a minimum of information available from the collected data. Applying bioinformatics tools and data mining approach...

The genetic alphabet consists of the four letters: C, A, G, and T in DNA and C,A,G, and U in RNA. Triplets of these four letters jointly encode 20 different amino acids out of which proteins of all organisms are built. This system is universal and is found in all kingdoms of life. However, bases in DNA and RNA can be chemically modified. In DNA, ar...

Although more than 400 microsatellite loci are currently available for Vicia faba L. (faba bean), an important food and feed grain crop legume, they have not yet been used for comprehensive molecular characterization of this crop. We report a three-step procedure for rapid and cost-effective delineation and utilization of informative genomic nuclea...
Article
Full-text available
We performed in silico PCR analyses utilizing complete mitochondrial (mtDNA) genome sequences of faba bean (Vicia faba) and two related species, Vigna angularis and Vigna radiata, currently available in GenBank, to infer whether 15 published universal primer pairs for amplification of all 14 cis-spliced introns in genes of NADH subunits (nad genes)...
Article
Resistance to the non-selective herbicide DL-phosphinothricin (PPT) was introduced into commercial Lotus corniculatus cv. Bokor by co-cultivation of cotyledons with Agrobacterium tumefaciens AGL1 harbouring the binary vector pDM805 which contains the bialaphos resistance gene (bar) from Streptomyces hygroscopicus encoding phosphinothricin acetyltra...

Invited Mini-Review: Buckwheat (Fagopyrum esculentum Moench) is a pseudocereal crop, mostly grown in the Northern Hemisphere. It is desirable for human consumption because buckwheat seeds have a high content of proteins (with high concentrations of essential amino acids) and minerals (e.g. iron, zinc and selenium). Concerning their high nutritive v...

We report an efficient, simple, and cost-effective protocol for the isolation of genomic DNA from an aromatic medicinal plant, common sage (Salvia officinalis L.). Our modification of the standard CTAB protocol includes two polyphenol adsorbents (PVP 10 and activated charcoal), high NaCl concentrations (4 M) for removing polysaccharides, and repeat...

The two main objectives of this research were to identify new S-RNase alleles in Iranian almond cultivars and to characterize naturally occurring mutations in these alleles that may cause self-compatibility. We investigated S genotypes of 22 Iranian almond cultivars using stylar RNase electrophoresis, PCR and DNA sequencing. We report six previousl...

Today, faba bean (Vicia faba L.) in Serbia is almost completely replaced with Phaseolus beans and has become a neglected crop with no official data. A recently launched action of the Institute of Field and Vegetable Crops and the Faculty of Agriculture in Novi Sad is aimed at the identification of the regions in Serbia where faba bean, known in Ser...
Article
Progress in biotechnology and genetic engineering enabled production of genetically modified (GM) plants, with novel characteristics due to bacterial or unrelated plants genes introduced into their genomes, like tolerance to herbicides and resistance to various diseases. Yields from GM crops yearly rise around the world, but the public concerns on...

Self-incompatibility (SI) systems, gamethophytic (GSI) and sporophytic (SSI), prevent self-pollination in angiosperms. Buckwheat displays heteromorphic SSI, with pollination allowed only between different flower morphs - thrum and pin. The physiology of thrum and pin morph SI responses are entirely different, resembling homomorphic Brassica SSI and...
Article
In order to investigate the S-RNase allele structure of a Prunus webbii population from the Montenegrin region of the Balkans, we analyzed 10 Prunus webbii accessions. We detected 10 different S-RNase allelic variants and obtained the nucleotide sequences for six S-RNases. The BLAST analysis showed that these six sequences were new Prunus webbii S-...
