Nóra Faragó1,2, Ágnes K. Kocsis3, Sándor Lovas3, Gábor Molnár3, Márton Rózsa3, Viktor Szemenyei3, Ágnes Zvara2, Gábor Tamás3, László G Puskás1,2

Whole-cell patch-clamp recording enables detecting electrophysiological signals from neurons, and RNA can be harvested into the patch pipette from the cells.We have optimized a dPCR protocol for determining exact transcript numbers in single neurons after patch-clamp recording by using dPCR based on high-density nanocapillary PCR.

NMR mixtures analysis can be used to determine the concentration of key components in wine. Here we show the analysis using SMA from Mestrelab.

A Novel Approach Toward Microfluidic Drug Metabolite Synthesis – Electrosynthetic Methodology Simulating Cytochrome (CYP450) Oxidation
Romain Stalder, Gregory P. Roth and Philip Podmore

A novel microfluidic technology and electrochemical synthesis method is demonstrated for the efficient generation of known drug metabolites. These metabolites are typically generated on first pass hepatic oxidation in vivo. The FLUX Module, a new microfluidic electrochemical cell manufactured by Syrris Ltd., has been employed to generate the metabolites of five commercial drugs: Tolbutamide, Chlorpromazine, Diclofenac, Primidone and Albendazole.

Christian Le Cocq, Kyeong Soo Jeong, Arjun Vadapalli, Joseph Ong, Elin Agne, Filip Karlsson, Ashutosh Ashutosh, Francisco Useche, Jayati Ghosh, Henrik Johansson, Scott Happe, Douglas Roberts, and Holly Hogrefe

Agilent’s SureSelect Target Enrichment for the Ion Proton Platform provides a comprehensive, efficient, robust, and cost-effective means to sequence subsets of the human genome.

Mutation Induction in Sucrose Synthase 1 to Study Cold Acclimation in Winter Wheat
Rita Armoniene, Gintaras Brazauskas

Sucrose synthase (Ss) catalyzes the reversible conversion of sucrose and a nucleoside diphosphate into the corresponding nucleoside diphosphate-glucose and fructose being one of the main enzymes of carbohydrate metabolism. The objectives of this study were: to create a TILLING population in winter wheat; to identify new alleles of Ss1 gene; to compare relative expression of Ss1 in leaves and crowns of mutant versus wild type plants during cold acclimation.

Characterization of the prehaustorial resistance against leaf rust (Puccinia triticina f. sp. tritici) in Einkorn (Triticum monococcum) by massive analysis of cDNA ends (MACE)
Albrecht Serfling1,2, Sven Templer1,3, Dragan Perovic1, Frank Ordon1

Triticum monococcum, a valuable source for horizontal resistance against P. triticina was analyzed microscopically and by transcriptional profiling. MACE showed the increased expression of chitinases, kinases, peroxidases and pathogenesis related genes in the first 8 hai. The high number of differentially expressd tags and the knowledge about SNPs facilitates in silico mapping and the development of polymorphic markers which may accelerate the transfer of this prehaustorial resistance

Genetic progress in the Romanian triticale breeding program
Ittu Gheorghe*, Saulescu Nicolae, Ittu Mariana, Mustatea Pompiliu and Marinciu Cristina

Since 1984 yield raised up to 43 kg / ha¹ and year¹ or 0.74 % /year¹ this progress being achieved mainly by improving fertility of spikes, plumpness of kernel, the test weight and introduction of short straw RhtB1b (Rht1) and Ddw1 (Hl) genes. In order to improve the yield stability, under predictions of global climatic changes, improvement of genetic diversity to powdery mildew, leaf and yellow rusts, virus and spike diseases and also for pre-harvest sprouting are still demanded.
