Volume 9, Issue 2 , December 2021, Pages 12-23

  Rice is the world’s most important staple food and will continue to be so in the coming decades. Ferrous iron is essential for rice growth. A mapping population of 96 rice inbred lines derived by Neda (NAD) and Ahlemitarom (ATM) cross, was used to detect quantitative trait loci (QTLs) for fresh ...  Read More

Volume 9, Issue 2 , December 2021, Pages 35-42

  Plants are important parts of our diet; which, in addition to the primary metabolites, also produce a wide range of secondary metabolites. Endophytic fungi are among these microorganisms that not only do not cause infection and disease in the host plant but also play a role in the production or increase ...  Read More

Effect of Sodium Nitroprusside and Some Plant Growth Regulators on Shoot Regeneration and Plantlet Development in Lycopersicon esculentum Mill.

Vahideh Gougerdchi; Ebrahim Dorani; Mostafa Valizadeh; Rustam Agazadeh

Volume 9, Issue 2 , December 2021, Pages 43-51

  Improving plant regeneration skills in tissue culture studies is critical not only for the efficient genetic transformation of commercial crops but also for scientific reports. SNP (Sodium nitroprusside) as a Nitric oxide (NO) donor, plays an important role in the growth and development of plants. In ...  Read More
