Katsuhisa Futagami is an MS student in the Graduate School of Bioresource and Bioenvironmental Sciences at Kyushu University, Fukuoka, Japan. He has been studying the theme during undergraduate and postgraduate courses in Kyushu University, under the supervision of Professor Yukio Ozaki and Assistant Professor Yuki Mizunoe. He attended the III Asian Horticultural Congress with the research entitled “Post-zygotic arrest of embryo development induces seedless fruits in kabosu (Citrus sphaerocarpa hort. ex. Tanaka)”.

A candidate mechanism controlling floral repression in hardly flowering cabbage mutant
3 weeks 6 days ago

Yu Kinoshita is a PhD student in the Graduate School of Agriculture at Kyoto University, Japan. She has studied a “hardly” flowering cabbage mutant under the supervision of Professor Munetaka Hosokawa. This cabbage mutant was found among the open-pollinated line ‘T15’ in an open field by Professor Susumu Yazawa 42 years ago and was named as ‘nfc’ (non-flowering cabbage). ‘nfc’ hardly flowers in the spring season even after plenty of low-temperature periods. Therefore, ‘nfc’ has been continually propagated vegetatively by cuttings.

Night temperature controlling for flowering in Chrysanthemum morifolium under high day temperature condition
3 weeks 6 days ago

I’m a PhD student in the Department of Horticulture, Biotechnology and Landscape Architecture at Seoul Women’s University, Republic of Korea. I finished my BSc in 2016 and completed my MSc in 2018 at Seoul Women’s University. My dissertation research project is focused on growth and flowering of orchid plants in response to elevated CO2. My objective was to study carbon reduction by controlling night temperature (NT) to save cooling expense during high daytime temperature (DT). I selected Chrysanthemum morifolium as the plant to be studied.

Dissecting the genome-wide evolution and functions of NUDX1 in rose monoterpene biosynthesis
3 weeks 6 days ago

Yu Han holds a PhD in Agriculture and works as an associate professor at Beijing Forestry University, Beijing, China. The objective of her studies is to analyze the genetic variation molecular basis and regulation mechanism in rose functional aroma components. Rosa chinensis is the most popular ornamental plant species worldwide. The flowers of this species have diverse colors and fragrances. Geraniol is an acyclic monoterpene compound with a mild, sweet rose fragrance. In rose, the biosynthesis of geraniol is not catalyzed by geraniol synthase, but the nudix hydrolases 1 (NUDX1).

Combined effect of heat treatment and moringa leaf extract (MLE) on colour development, quality and postharvest life of tomatoes
10 months 3 days ago

Bonga Ngcobo is a PhD student in the Discipline of Horticultural Science at the University of KwaZulu-Natal, Pietermaritzburg, South Africa. He graduated with a BSc Agric and Masters (cum laude) from the same University and continued his studies under the supervision of Professor Isa Bertling, from the same Discipline, and Dr. Alistair Clulow, from the Discipline of Agrometeorology. His research focuses on improving the quality and yield of solanaceous (nightshade) crops using innovative, potential horticultural practices, such as application of moringa leaf extract and heat treatments.

Pomological, quality and organoleptic traits of some autochthonous apple cultivars in Prespa region, North Macedonia

Nikola Saraginovski is pursuing a PhD degree at Saints Cyril and Methodius University, while working as a Teaching Assistant at the Department of Fruit Growing at the Faculty of Agricultural Sciences and Food, in Skopje, North Macedonia. He participated in the IV Balkan Symposium on Fruit Growing in Istanbul, Turkey, with the research entitled: “Pomological, quality and organoleptic traits of some autochthonous apple cultivars in Prespa Region, North Macedonia”. In the most important apple (Malus × domestica) growing region in the country, Prespa, apples have been grown for centuries.

Improving the storage quality of mulberry fruit (Morus nigra L.) by different bio-materials
10 months 3 days ago

İbrahim Kahramanoğlu holds a PhD in Postharvest Biology and Technology and works as a lecturer at the European University of Lefke (Northern Cyprus). The objective of his studies is to test the effects of eco-friendly and edible bio-materials on the postharvest storability of fresh products. The human population on earth is increasing tremendously while available resources (i.e., water and soil) are continuously being regionally depleted. Therefore, postharvest storage of fresh products is as important as their production.

Small RNA deep sequencing for plant virus discovery in cultivated Rubus and Ribes in Finland
10 months 3 days ago

Small RNA (sRNA) sequences are precisely 21, 22 and 24 nt (nucleotide) in length. Deep sequencing of sRNAs generates sRNA datasets. This procedure allows for the discovery of novel viruses and the identification of viral genomes for use in reference databases. RNA samples from Rubus and Ribes germplasm in Finland were combined for a large-scale virus diagnosis. The collection included ten red raspberry (Rubus idaeus L.) mother plants and one accession each from blackcurrant (Ribes nigrum L.) and redcurrant (Ribes rubrum L.) cultivars.
