Genetic structure and molecular diversity of Brazilian grapevine germplasm: management and use in the breeding programs

The management of germplasm banks is complex, especially when many accessions are involved. Microsatellite markers are an efficient tool for assessing the genetic diversity of germplasm collections, optimizing their use in breeding programs. This study genetically characterizes a large collection of 420 grapevine accessions maintained at the Agronomic Institute of Campinas (IAC) (Brazil). The accessions were genotyped with 17 highly polymorphic microsatellite markers. Genetic data were analyzed to determine the genetic structure of the germplasm, quantify its allelic diversity, suggest the composition of a core collection and discover cases of synonymy, duplication and misnaming. A total of 304 alleles were obtained, and 334 unique genotypes were identified. The molecular profiles of 145 accessions were confirmed according to the literature and databases, and the molecular profiles of more than 100 genotypes were reported for the first time. The analysis of the genetic structure revealed different levels of stratification. The primary division was between accessions related to Vitis vinifera and V. labrusca, followed by their separation from wild grapevine. A core collection of 120 genotypes captured 100% of all detected allele...Continue Reading

Alzheimer's Disease: Transcription

Transcription involves copying (transcribing) the gene's DNA sequence into RNA. Impaired transcription is associated with the pathogenesis and progression of conditions such as Alzheimer's disease (AD). Here are the latest discoveries pertaining to transcription and this disease.

Alzheimer's Disease: Microglia (Preprints)

Microglial proliferation and activation, as well as its concentration around amyloid plaques, is a prominent feature of Alzheimer’s disease. Here is the latest research on microglia and Alzheimer’s disease.
