Generating a Novel Soybean (Glycine max) Cultivar with Resistance to Nematode Infection and High Performance in Adverse Conditions through Overexpression of Cysteine Protease Inhibitor 1
In this project, we are attempting to develop novel soybean cultivars that overexpress soybean cysteineprotease inhibitor 1 (GmCPI1) by using Agrobacterium mediated plant transformation method. Such cultivars will potentially ...
Inducing RNAi of dpy11 and bli-1 genes in C. elegans
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 ...
Transformation of Soy (Glycine max) for Heightened Expression of the SIZ1 Gene
SIZ1 is a member of the PIAS family of proteins. One of this enzyme’s functions is to act as an E3 ligase, conjugating small ubiquitin-related modifiers (SUMOs) to various substrate proteins as part of the process called ...
Effects of Target Training and Enrichment on Swine Behavior
The mission of this study was to introduce pigs to target training in order to see if the they would benefit from the enrichment as well as if it would create easier farm management techniques for the producer. Target ...
Effects of Supplemental Probiotics and Prebiotics on Growth and Carcass Quality in Meat Rabbits
Due to the public dissatisfaction of growth hormones to produce meat, farmers are forced to look for other methods of growing animals. Probiotics and prebiotics are said to increase digestion and feed efficiency in animals. ...
The Improvement of Coffee Beans to Simulate Kopi Luwak
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 ...
