  • Patent number: 10240164
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a method of modulating the density of lignin in a test plant compared to the corresponding lignin density in a wild-type plant cultured under the same conditions, the method comprising modulating the concentration and/or activity of a polypeptide encoded by a core circadian clock gene, wherein modulation of the concentration and/or activity of the polypeptide modulates lignin density in the test plant. The present invention further relates to the use of a genetic construct which is capable of modulating the concentration and/or activity of a polypeptide encoded by a core circadian clock gene, for modulating the density of lignin in a plant, wherein the genetic construct encodes a polypeptide comprising the amino acid sequence substantially as set out in SEQ ID No's: 2 or 4, or a functional variant or fragment thereof.

  • Patent number: 9988639
    Abstract: The problem of providing a technology that converts a Brassica rapa plant having self-incompatibility to having self-compatibility is addressed. The problem is solved by causing a pollen factor (SP11) to be inactive at a self-incompatibility gene locus for a Brassica rapa plant, while maintaining the inverted repeat sequence (SMI) on a class I dominant S haplotype.

  • Patent number: 9029629
    Abstract: The present invention provides methods of marker-assisted selection for high oleic/low linolenic traits in canola and in other oil seed crop species, as well as isolated nucleic acids for use as molecular markers in such methods. In particular, molecular markers and Brassica nucleic acid corresponding to fad2 and fad3 gene mutations are disclosed. The markers of the present invention are highly useful for the direct selection of desirable fad2 and fad3 alleles during marker-assisted trait introgression and breeding. In one aspect of the embodiment, two single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) markers are provided that correspond to the alleles. Thus, the present invention advantageously permits one of skill in the art to breed for the molecular markers described herein, or derivatives thereof, rather than breeding for a high oleic/low linolenic phenotype.
