Evaluation of hematology instrument shows shortages

Erroneous neutrophil and lymphocyte counts from analysis of feline blood samples were transferred directly into the hospital information system from the ProCyte Dx hematology instrument in our after-hours laboratory. Errors usually were not detected ...


Solution to plant breeding barrier coming closer

Pollen in anthers. Photo: Germán Martínez A major obstacle for plant breeders around the world is that the endosperm does not develop normally in seeds from crosses of plants that differ in chromosome number. Claudia Köhler"s lab at SLU has investigated ...


Genotype and environment interplay in crop production

Major research activities focus on the production ecology and resource use efficiency of agricultural crops and the genetic basis of the underlying crop traits. Projects - Optimized Utilisation of Salix - OPTUS - Alternative uses of Salix wood as raw ...


The genetics behind starch and dietary fibre storage in barley seeds is revealed

Barley plant. Photo: Chuanxin Sun How much of photosynthetic products that are channelled into starch and fructan (a type of dietary fibre) in a barley seed is controlled by a single gene. An international research team, with its base at SLU, has now ...


The growth of puzzle piece-shaped leaf cells gets an explanation
