Article
Full-text available
A comprehensive approach using phenomics and global transcriptomics for dissecting plant response to biostimulants is illustrated with tomato (Solanum lycopersicum cv. Micro-Tom and Rio Grande) plants cultivated in the laboratory, greenhouse, and open field conditions. Biostimulant treatment based on an Ascophyllum nodosum extract (ANE) was applied...
Article
Full-text available
The microbial diversity is, among soil key factors, responsible for soil fertility and nutrient biogeochemical cycles, and can be modified upon changes in main soil physicochemical properties and soil pollution. Over the years, many restoration techniques have been applied to restore degraded soils. However, the effect of these approaches on soil m...
Article
Full-text available
The worldwide demand for vegetable oils is rising. Oilseed rape (Brassica napus) diversifies cereal dominated crop rotations but requires important nitrogen input. Yet, the root organ is offering an untapped opportunity to improve the nitrogen capture in soil. This study evaluates three culture systems in controlled environment, to observe root mor...

Sugar beet (Beta vulgaris ssp. vulgaris L.) is mainly grown in temperate countries of the Northern Hemisphere and supplies around 20% of the world sugar consumption. Cultivated in the past as a vegetable or fodder crop, selection of sugar beet began at the end of 1700s. The first objective was to improve sugar content in the taproot and a number of...
Article
Full-text available
The identification of efficient molecular markers related to low bolting tendency is a priority in sugar beet (Beta vulgaris L.) breeding. This study aimed to identify SNP markers associated with low bolting tendency by establishing a genome-wide association study. An elaborate 3-year field trial comprising 13 sugar beet lines identified L14 as the...
Article
Full-text available
Rhizomania is a grave disease affecting sugar beet (Beta vulgaris L.). It is caused by the Beet Necrotic Yellow Vein Virus (BNYVV), an RNA virus transmitted by the plasmodiophorid vector Polymyxa betae. Genetic resistance to the virus has been accomplished mostly using phenotype-genotype association studies. As yet, the most convenient method to as...

Full-text available
DNA-based technologies have become widespread tools for soil microbiological analyses in recent years. DNA extraction from the soil is a key step for these approaches: it is a challenge for researchers as it is still both expensive and time-consuming when large surveys are planned. The aim of this study was to develop a high-throughput automated pr...
Article
Full-text available
Edible/non-toxic varieties of Jatropha curcas L. are gaining increasing attention, providing both oil as biofuel feedstock or even as edible oil and the seed kernel meal as animal feed ingredient. They are a viable alternative to the limitation posed by the presence of phorbol esters in toxic varieties. Accurate genotyping of toxic/non-toxic access...
Article
Full-text available
The sustainability of modern sugar beet growing has been proved considerably high. Its improvement has been gradual, streamlined with relevant progresses in crop breeding and husbandry. However, opportunities still exist for a much better required sustainable intensification of sugar beet production. For this purpose, one of the most important prer...
Chapter
Full-text available
Jatropha curcas L. is currently attracting much attention as an oilseed crop, which can be used as biofuel and feasible feedstock for animals. In order to improve conventional breeding strategies, DNA variants are currently being exploited. The last few years have witnessed the development of molecular markers (SSRs, SNPs, AFLPs, RTNs, etc.) that c...
Article
Full-text available
Background PCR allelic discrimination technologies have broad applications in the detection of single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in genetics and genomics. The use of fluorescence-tagged probes is the leading method for targeted SNP detection, but assay costs and error rates could be improved to increase genotyping efficiency. A new assay, rhAm...
Article
Full-text available
Rhizomania is one of the most devastating biotic stresses affecting sugar beet (Beta vulgaris L.). It is caused by Beet necrotic yellow vein virus (BNYVV) vectored by the plasmodiophorid Polymyxa betae K. The only means available to control the disease is the use of genetically resistant varieties. “Rizor” or “Holly” (Rz1) and WB42 (Rz2) have been...
Article
Full-text available
Resistance gene analogs (RGAs) were searched bioinformatically in the sugar beet (Beta vulgaris L.) genome as potential candidates for improving resistance against different diseases. In the present study, Ion Torrent sequencing technology was used to identify mutations in 21 RGAs. The DNA samples of ninety-six individuals from six sea beets (Beta...
