Plant and crop metabolomic analyses may be used to study metabolism across genetic and environmental diversity. Complementary analytical strategies are useful for investigating metabolic changes and searching for biomarkers of response or performance.

Domesticated plants and animals often display dramatic responses to selection, but the origins of the genetic diversity underlying these responses remain poorly understood. Despite domestication and i...
Limited evidence indicates that moderate leaf hyponasty can be induced by high temperatures or un-naturally-high CO . Here we report that the combination of warming plus elevated CO (eCO ) induces sev...
Dwarf mutants are useful to elucidate regulatory mechanisms of plant growth and development. A brachytic mutant, named lingering hope (linho), was recently isolated from sunﬂower (Helianthus annuus)...
Plant enemies that attack chemically similar host species are thought to mediate competitive exclusion of chemically similar plants and select for chemical divergence among closely related species. Th...
To date, most studies of natural variation and metabolite quantitative trait loci (mQTL) in tomato have focused on fruit metabolism, leaving aside the identification of genomic regions involved in the...
This study explores the feasibility of applying an intervention using vegetable oils (coconut and sunflower oils) on individuals diagnosed with Mild Cognitive Impairment. Participants will...
Mulberry leaf teas or extracts are used as a natural remedy for diabetes in some countries. Animal studies have shown some effect of mulberry leaf extract on blood glucose. The purpose of ...
The goal of the proposed intervention, called LEAF (Life Enhancing Activities for Family Caregivers) is to reduce burden and increase well-being in Alzheimer's Disease caregivers through t...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate whether mulberry leaf extract will help control blood sugar in patients with type 2 diabetes. We also want to look at the safety of mulberry leaf ...
The hypothesis is that silver leaf nylon dressing reduces the percentage of patients developing brisk erythema and moist desquamation while undergoing whole breast radiotherapy. The secon...
The genetic constitution of the individual; the characterization of the genes.
Oil derived from the seeds of SUNFLOWER plant, Helianthus.
The audibility limit of discriminating sound intensity and pitch.
The third stomach of ruminants, situated on the right side of the abdomen at a higher level than the fourth stomach and between this latter and the second stomach, with both of which it communicates. From its inner surface project large numbers of leaves or folia, each of which possesses roughened surfaces. In the center of each folium is a band of muscle fibers which produces a rasping movement of the leaf when it contracts. One leaf rubs against those on either side of it, and large particles of food material are ground down between the rough surfaces, preparatory to further digestion in the succeeding parts of the alimentary canal.

The encapsulated embryos of flowering plants. They are used as is or for animal feed because of the high content of concentrated nutrients like starches, proteins, and fats. Rapeseed, cottonseed, and sunflower seed are also produced for the oils (fats) they yield.
Stress is caused by your perception of situations around you and then the reaction of your body to them. The automatic stress response to unexpected events is known as 'fight or flight'. Discovered by Walter Cannon in 1932, it is the release of h...
Complementary and Alternative Medicine
Alternative medicine are whole medical systems that did not fit with conventional medicine as they have completely different philosophies and ideas on the causes of disease, methods of diagnosis and approaches to treatment. Although often overlapping, co...
