Mohamad Amin Neycee; Motahhareh Mohsenpour; Hassan Rahnama

Volume 12, Issue 39 , November 2023, Pages 69-83

  Safflower with low oleic acid content is one of the native plants of Iran. Generally,, high oleic acid oils have more oxidative stability than the oils with high linoleic acids . Genome editing technology enable us to obtain oilseeds with high oleic acid. In this research, two guide RNA sequences ...  Read More

Comparative bioinformatics analyses of the chloroplast genome of a diploid Cotton (G. herbaceum) with two allotetraploid species

Hajar Nasrollahi; Farshid Talat; Iraj Bernousi; Mehdi Badri Anarjan

Volume 7, Issue 20 , March 2018, , Pages 1-12

  Diploid genome contains 8 genomes designated as A, B, C, D, E, F, G and K which have been identified in the genus Gossypium. The genome of A is limited only in two species as G. herbaceum and G.arboreum, and it is transferred from G. herbaceum to other species. The chloroplast genome (CP) of G. herbaceum ...  Read More
