In Vitro Plant Regeneration of Tomato (Lycopersiconesculentum)

Zaman MRU, Bhuiyan MSU, Ahmed T, Haque MK3 and Uddin M*
The experiment was carried out at the Genetic Engineering Laboratory of the Department of Genetics and Plant Breeding, Sylhet Agricultural University, Sylhet to develop a suitable protocol for high frequency plant regeneration of tomato (Lycopersicon esculentum). An efficient system for high frequency plant regeneration system of L. esculentum was developed through investigating various factors such as combination of plant growth regulators; explant type, age and ethylene biosynthesis inhibitor AgNO3. To observe the suitable medium for callus initiation and shoot...

Agronomic Performance and Essential Oil Yield of Greek Oregano Under Different Irrigation Management

Fournomiti M*, Koutroubas S, Damalas C, Kimbaris A, Sinapidou E, Mantzourani I, Plessas S, Bezirtzoglou E and Alexopoulos A
The effects of two treatments of irrigation and non-irrigation on dry weight yield, oil yield and composition of Greek oregano (Origanum vulgare ssp. hirtum (Link) Ietswaart) during the second and third seasons from its field establishment (first year) for two harvest each year on the first full blooming on June and the second on September were examined....


Next Generation Sequencing: Prospects in Plant Breeding and Crop Improvement

Aryadeep Roychoudhury*
The world population is expected to reach around nine billion by 2050 [1] so that increased yield and productivity of crops is of paramount importance to mitigate world hunger, malnourishment and also protect crops against abiotic and biotic stresses in the face of global climate change. For a long time, crop improvement programs mostly relied on breeding techniques to incorporate...

Agronomic and Genetic Biofortification of Rice Grains with Microelements to Assure Human Nutritional Security

Aryadeep Roychoudhury*
‘Hidden hunger’ or micronutrient deficiency due to malnutrition among underprivileged and economically-challenged people, including pre-school children and women, has emerged as a major health-related issue, mostly in the developing nations like Africa, South Asia and Latin America. Globally, micronutrient malnutrition alone affects more than two billion people, mostly...
