    • Analysis of Transformation Effectiveness in Brassica rapa 

      Yusko, Kevin; Zeng, Peiyu, Dr.; McMaster-Schuyler, Lynda, Dr. (2018-05)
      Brassica rapa is an organism favored for its use as a model in plant biotechnology. Researchers at the University of Wisconsin-Madison selectively bred a cultivar of B. rapa that specifically serves this purpose, known as ...
    • Development of high yield Switchgrass Cultivar by Agrobacterium-Mediated transformation with InsP-5-Ptase Gene 

      Chang, Chen; Snare, Melissa; McMaster-Schuyler, Lynda, Dr.; Zeng, Peiyu, Dr. (2018-05)
      InsP-5-Ptase gene is involved in the phosphoinostide pathway which functions as a mechanism of drought response. The protein products of this gene hydrolyze soluble inositol phosphates terminating the signal of InsP3 ...
    • Development of Tissue Culture System for Transformation System in Hops (Humulus lupulus) 

      Lu, Hanwang; Cao, Lei; Zhao, Yifeng; Zeng, Peiyu, Dr.; McMaster-Schuyler, Lynda, Dr. (2018-05)
      Hop (Humulus lupulus) is widely used in the brewing industry because the female flower improves the aroma and flavor of beer. It is challenging to cultivate hops in New York state since the hop is very sensitive to fungi ...
    • The Improvement of Coffee Beans to Simulate Kopi Luwak 

      Chen, Jiayu.; Dong, Hao.; LaRochelle, Sophie.; Ouyang, Honglin.; Tang, Hanyue.; Zhou, Xin.; Wells, Sean.; McMaster-Schuyler, Lynda, Dr. (2015-04)
      The Civet Cat of family Viverridae is used to produce a rare coffee product called Kopi Luwak. As a result of Kopi Luwak’s increasing popularity, Civet Cat abuse is prevalent. Our research aims to recreate Kopi Luwak by ...
    • Inducing RNAi of dpy11 and bli-1 genes in C. elegans 

      Jiang, Yunru.; Yang, Siyuan.; Guan, Jinming.; McMaster-Schuyler, Lynda, Dr. (2015-04)
      RNA interference (RNAi) is a biological process in which RNA molecules block gene expression, typically by causing the destruction of specific mRNA molecules. C. elegans is an excellent model system to study because many ...
    • Soybean Transformation with Cysteine Protease Inhibitor (CPI1) Gene for Resistance and Tolerance 

      Snare, Melissa; Cross, Janel; Zhou, Yeying; McMaster-Schuyler, Lynda, Dr.; Zeng, Peiyu, Dr. (2018-05)
      Soybeans (Glycine max) are one of the major agricultural important crops in the United States. These legumes have a variety of uses, including food and industrial applications. Soybean growth is susceptible to drought, ...
