Background Open air markets hold an important position for ethnobiologists. In Southeast Asia, they are seriously understudied, in spite of their incredible biocultural diversity. In order to fill this gap we recorded plants and fungi sold in the open air markets of Luang Prabang, Lao PDR. Methods The markets were visited 38 times in four seasons:...

Chromosomal 22q11.2 deletion syndrome (22q11.2DS) (ORPHA: 567) caused by microdeletion in chromosome 22 is the most common chromosomal microdeletion disorder in humans. Despite the same change on the genome level, like in the case of monozygotic twins, phenotypes are expressed differently in 22q11.2 deletion individuals. The rest of the genome, as...
Article
Powdery mildew (PM) is a common disease caused by Blumeria graminis , which affects cereals and has recently adapted to triticale. Adult‐plant resistance (APR) genes provide durable protection of crops from the disease. Quantitative trait loci corresponding to the APR effects were mapped in an F2 population of “Lamberto” (susceptible) × “Moderato”...
Article
Natural products and traditional medicines are of great importance. Recent studies have demonstrated, that cereal grass juice improves wound healing, however the cellular and molecular mechanisms underlying these processes have not been fully characterized. Also, the full phytochemical characteristics of freshly squeezed juices obtained from cereal...
Chapter
Prenatal and preimplantation genetic diagnosis have become widely acceptable for couples at a high risk of transmitting an inherited disease. The feasibility of diagnosis was facilitated by developments in reproductive genetics and biotechnology methods. While diagnoses are currently more accurate and more refined, they are still not without techni...
Chapter
The adoption of regulations concerning transgenic food is expected to ensure consumers that authorized products have been deemed safe. The majority of scientists agree on the safety of genetically modified organisms (GMOs); however, contradictory reports on health risks associated with GMOs have appeared in the scientific literature, supporting the...

Relatively little is known of the genetic control of chlorophyll fluorescence (CF) and pigment traits important in determining efficiency of photosynthesis in wheat and its association with biomass productivity. A doubled haploid population of 94 lines from the wheat cross Chinese Spring × SQ1 was trialled under optimum glasshouse conditions for 4...
Article
Full-text available
The QTLs controlling germination and early seedling growth were mapped using seeds acquired from mapping population and parental lines of Chinese Spring and SQ1 grown under water-limited conditions, severe drought (SDr) and well-watered plants (C). Germination ability was determined by performing a standard germination test based on the quantificat...

We present an overview of the research and achievements of applications of molecular tools based on gene transfer and gene modulation (gene knock-down and knock-out), aimed at enhancing food production, improving food properties and producing various valuable compounds for human nutrition. Selected cases of genetically manipulated plants (biofortif...
Article
Full-text available
Genetically modified (GM) food is discussed as an example of the controversial relation between the intrinsic uncertainty of the scientific approach and the demand of citizen-consumers to use products of science innovation that are known to be safe. On the whole, peer-reviewed studies on GM food safety do not note significant health risks, with a f...
