Use of genotyping by sequencing to determine the genetic structure in the medicinal plant chamomile, and to identify flowering time and alpha bisabolol associated SNP loci by genome wide association mapping

BMC Genomics
PMCID: 5553732
PMID: 28797221
DOI: 10.1186/s12864-017-3991-0

[…] nnotation of the BLAST-results were performed using Blast2GO 4.0.2 and default settings [–]. Additionally, blastn against the Helianthus annuus (sunflower) XRQ genome assembly was done at https://www.heliagene.org/HanXRQ-SUNRISE/ [], since sunflower is the closest related species with a sequenced genome available, belonging together with chamomile in the Asteraceae. Local BLAST analysis was done w […]


Low Agrobacterium tumefaciens inoculum levels and a long co culture period lead to reduced plant defense responses and increase transgenic shoot production of sunflower (Helianthus annuus L.)

PMCID: 5042984
PMID: 27746666
DOI: 10.1007/s11627-016-9774-5

[…] es (Veena et al.), and wheat embryogenic calluses (Zhou et al.). Orthologs of the selected genes were identified in the sunflower genome by running basic local alignment search tool (BLAST) using the HeliaGene database (www.heliagene.org/HA412.v1.1.bronze.20141015) with the amino acid sequences of the selected A. thaliana genes (Table ), and the best hit with the highest percentage of identity and […]


Genetic Control of Water Use Efficiency and Leaf Carbon Isotope Discrimination in Sunflower (Helianthus annuus L.) Subjected to Two Drought Scenarios

PLoS One
PMCID: 4081578
PMID: 24992022

[…] for each group. The genetic map consisted of 2610 markers located on the 17 LG for a total genetic distance of 1863.1 cM and grouped on 999 different loci. All data will be available through the www.heliagene.org portal. […]


A Gene Phenotype Network Based on Genetic Variability for Drought Responses Reveals Key Physiological Processes in Controlled and Natural Environments

PLoS One
PMCID: 3466295
PMID: 23056196
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0045249

[…] The HELIAGENE database (http://www.heliagene.org) hosts and curates the information concerning the assembly of 284 340 ESTs from seven different Helianthus species, mainly produced in frame of Compositae […]


Transcriptomic analysis of the interaction between Helianthus annuus and its obligate parasite Plasmopara halstedii shows single nucleotide polymorphisms in CRN sequences

BMC Genomics
PMCID: 3204308
PMID: 21988821
DOI: 10.1186/1471-2164-12-498

[…] Using a TBLASTX analysis with a cut-off E-value of 1e-30 against the PUT and Heliagene databases and no match to the OOM database, 12,000 HP clusters were predicted to be of plant origin. Among these, searches were carried out using the keywords "defense", "disease" and "patho […]
