The article presents information on BRAD, the Brassica database, a web-based resource which offers genome scale genetic and genomic data for important Brassica crops. Brassica species include both vegetable and oilseed crops, and these are excellent systems for studying different aspects of plant biology.

    An introgression derived from the B genome of Brassica juncea in spring-type oilseed rape ( B. napus) conferring recessively inherited cotyledon resistance against several pathotypes of the blackleg fungus Leptosphaeria maculans was mapped using PCR-based molecular markers. Resistance-associated...

    Brassica rapa is the most widely distributed and has the longest history of domestication of the agricultural Brassica species. Molecular genetic diversity, based on 51 simple sequence repeat primer pairs and 715 alleles at polymorphic loci, was used to predict the center of origin and centers...

C. // Journal of Experimental Botany;Jul2009, Vol. 60 Issue 11, p3239 

    The impact of sulphur limitation on the remobilization of endogenous S compounds during the rosette stage of oilseed rape, and the interactions with N availability on these processes, were examined using a long-term 34SO42− labelling method combined with a study of leaf senescence...

    Cultivated peanut, Arachis hypogaea L., is a tetraploid (2n = 4x = 40) species thought to be of allopolyploid origin. Its closest relatives are the diploid (2n = 2x = 20) annual and perennial species included with it in Arachis sect. Arachis. Species in section Arachis represent an important...

    We have determined the parameters of oil expression process for non-typical seeds of oil-producing plants, such as quince tree, safflower, fennel-flower, cuckoo-flower, tarweed, lallemantia, sea-buckthorn, borage, evening primrose, mustard, and others. The relative moisture of most of the seeds...

    Abstract  Centromeres and telomeres are obvious markers on chromosomes but their location on genetic maps is difficult to determine, which hampers many basic and applied research programmes. In this study, we used the characteristic distribution of five Brassica repeated sequences to...
