Introduction. Rapeseed, Brassica napus L., (2n = 4× = 36, genome AACC) is grown mainly for the production of edible oil for human consumption and is the most important member of the Brassicaceae family, which consists of more than species. It originated as a result of interspecific hybridization between Brassica rapa (AA genome, 2n = 2× = 20) and Brassica Cited by:   The Brassica napus (oilseed rape) accession shows a disturbed germination phenotype that was thought to be associated with its lack of testa pigmentation and thin seed coat. Here, we demonstrate that the disturbed germination and seedling development are actually due to independent mutations that disrupt the balance of hormone metabolites Cited by:

  Abstract. Flowering time adaptation is a major breeding goal in the allopolyploid species Brassica investigate the genetic architecture of flowering time, a genome-wide association study (GWAS) of flowering time was conducted with a diversity panel comprising B. napus cultivars and inbred lines grown in eight different environments.. Genotyping was Cited by:   Brassica species have an economic and medicinal importance. Estimation of the amount and distribution of genetic diversity within Brassica species is essential for establishing efficient management, conservation and breeding practices. This review discusses the taxonomy, gene pool, and Brassica-derived phytochemicals and their nutraceutical importance.

Canola (Brassica napus L.) is an improved variety of colza (Brassica oleracea L., and Brassica campestris L.), developed by Canadian researchers in the sixties (Dias,). In Brazil, canola is cultivated mainly in the states of Paraná and Rio Grande do Sul, with the concern of minimizing problems with the use and conservation of the soil.   Brassica napus (oilseed rape, canola) is one of the world’s most important sources of vegetable oil for human nutrition and biofuel, and also a model species for studies Cited by:

Shepherd, in Metabolomics in Food and Nutrition, Oilseed rape (Brassica napus L.)Oilseed rape (Brassica napus L.), or Canola, is used in the production of oil and livestock oil is extracted from the seed, and is used as both a foodstuff and in products such as candles, lipsticks, industrial lubricants, etc.

Among Brassica crops, oilseeds have the highest economic value, reflected in the fatty acid composition of the oil. Resistance to fungal pathogens and insect pests is frequently investigated in the selection of ars resistant to Sclerotinia would be desirable for both ecological and Author: Natalija Burbulis, Natalija Burbulis, Laima S.

Kott, Laima S. Kott. Abstract. Cabbage (Brassica oleracea var. capitata L.) belongs to the family Brassicaceae, mainly spread on the northern extratropical region of the globe, and originated from wild types growing on the European coasts of the Atlantic and the ly the leaves of these headless plants were used for food by the population of the Stone by: 5.

The allopolyploid crop species Brassica napus has the most highly duplicated plant genome to be assembled to date, with the largest number of annotated genes. Examples are provided for use of the genome sequence to identify and capture diversity for important agronomic traits, including seed quality and disease resistance.

Rapeseed (Brassica napus subsp. napus) is a bright-yellow flowering member of the family Brassicaceae (mustard or cabbage family), cultivated mainly for its oil-rich seed, which naturally contains appreciable amounts of toxic erucic acid.

Canola are a group of rapeseed cultivars which were bred to have very low levels of erucic acid and are especially prized for use for human Clade: Angiosperms. The Biology of Brassica napus L. (canola) Version 2: February This document provides an overview of baseline biological information relevant to risk assessment of genetically modified forms of the species that may be released into the Australian environment.

The genus Brassica belongs to the family Brassicaceae, which comprises some species, including rapeseed (Brassica napus L.), mustard (Brassica juncea L.), cabbage (Brassica oleracea L.) and turnip rape (Brassica rapa L.) that are mainly grown for oil, condiments, vegetables or fodder (Ashraf and McNeilly ).Cited by: Guerche P, Jouanin L, Tepfer D, Pelletier G () Genetic transformation of oilseed rape (Brassica napus) by the Ri T-DNA of Agrobacterium rhizogenes and analysis of inheritance of the transformed phenotype.

Oilseed rape (Brassica napus L.) is one of the most important oil crops worldwide and provides high‐quality edible vegetable oil for human edibility and processing quality of rapeseed oil are mainly determined by the fatty acid composition of the seeds, particularly the proportions of the three major unsaturated fatty Cited by: 2.

One of the most important goals in the breeding of oilseed crops, including Brassica napus, is to improve the quality of edible vegetable oil, which is mainly determined by the seed fatty acid composition, particularly the C us studies have indicated that the C content is a polygenic trait, and no stable quantitative trait loci (QTL s) except for FAD 2 have Cited by: 2.

Abstract. We developed Diversity Array Technology (DArT) markers for application in genetic studies of Brassica napus and other Brassica species with A or C genomes.

Genomic representation from diverse genotypes of B. napus L. var. oleifera (rapeseed, AACC genomes) and B. rapa (AA genome) was used to develop a DArT array comprising 11 Cited by:   Rapeseed (Brassica napus) is an important oilseed and energy allotetraploid genome fully comprises the two genomes of the species Brassica rapa (A genome) and Brassica oleracea (C genome), and the estimated genome size of B.

Brassica napus is self pollinated, presenting however, many resources for the allogamy accomplishment, e.g., abundant pollen, nectar and scent production.

Rapeseed (Brassica napus L., genome AACC, 2n = 38) is a relatively young species that originated in a limited geographic region through spontaneous hybridisations between turnip rape (B. rapa L., AA, 2n = 20) and cabbage (B.

Main variety grown in Canada and Western Australia, including 'Target', 'Turret', 'Oro', and 'Zaphyr', the last two being free of erucic acid. Leading rape cvs for oilseeds in Minnesota are: 'Golden', 'Nugget', and.

Rapeseed (Brassica napus L., AACC, 2n = 38) is one of the most important oil crops originated from a spontaneous hybridization between B. rapa (AA, 2n = 20) and B. oleracea (CC, 2n Cited by: Further, the book focuses on the development of tools to facilitate the transfer of our rich knowledge on Arabidopsis to a cultivated Brassica crop.

Key topics covered include genomic resources, assembly tools, annotation of the genome, transposable elements, comparative genomics, evolution of Brassica genomes, and advances in the application. genotypes have been created by different biotechnology methods, the best of which have been involved in spring rapeseed breeding programs.

Oilseed rape (Brassica napus) was formed ~7, years ago by hybridisation between B. rapa and B. oleracea, followed by chromosome doubling, a process known as er with more ancient polyploidsations, this conferred an aggregate fold genome multiplication since the origin of angiosperms and high gene ca napus: Arabidopsis .
