Introgression of a Drought Tolerant Festuca Mairie Genome Into an Agronomically Desirable Lolium perenne

IntroductionPerennial ryegrass (Lolium perenne L.) is a diploid cool-season bunch-type grass that is widely used for turf purposes. It germinates rapidly and is quick to establish—characteristics that have led to its frequent use in turfgrass mixtures in both the temperate and transition climatic zones. Perennial ryegrass is used in lawn, golf...

An Arabidopsis Gene Involved in the Conversion of Aldehydes to Alkanes in Arabidopsis Leaf Wax

IntroductionEpicuticular wax layers of plants mainly consist of long straight-chain aliphatic hydrocarbons with a variety of substituted groups. Plant waxes have many functions, including increasing plant resistance to biotic stress (e.g., pathogens) and abiotic stress (e.g., temperature changes, drought). Additionally, since wax components have a high...
