Accurate detection of inflorescences can lead to an inflorescence count to provide an early yield estimation in viticulture. The task here is to detect inflorescences in RGB images using image process... moreing, computer vision, and machine learning techniques. The purpose of this dataset is to provide a common platform for researchers to develop methods for inflorescence detection and compare their research.less

Vegetation Fractional Cover represents the exposed proportion of Photosynthetic Vegetation (PV), Non-Photosynthetic Vegetation (NPV) and Bare Soil (BS) within each pixel. The sum of the three fraction... mores is 100% (+/- 3%) and shown in Red/Green/Blue colors. In forested canopies the photosynthetic or non-photosynthetic portions of trees may obscure those of the grass layer and/or bare soil. This product is derived from the MODIS Nadir BRDF-Adjusted Reflectance product (MCD43A4) collection 6 and has 500 meters spatial resolution.
A suite of derivative products are also produced including monthly fractional cover, total vegetation cover (PV+NPV), and anomaly of total cover against the time series.
Monthly: The monthly product is aggregated from the 8-day composites using the medoid method.
Anomaly: represents the difference between total vegetation cover (PV+NPV) in a given month and the mean total vegetation cover for that month in all years available, expressed in units of cover. For example, if the mean vegetation cover in January (2001-current year) was 40% and the vegetation cover for the pixel in January 2018 was 30%, the anomaly for the pixel in Jan 2018 would be -10%.
Decile: represents the ranking (in ten value intervals) for the total vegetation cover in a given month in relation to the vegetation cover in that month for all years in the time-series.
MODIS fractional cover has been validated for Australia. less

X chromosome variants were associated to heritable fertility traits, in two bovine populations.
Fortes, Porto-Neto et al. 2019.
Background: Targeting phenotypes related to bull fertility, such as spe... morerm morphology and sperm DNA fragmentation can help identify mutations that limit reproduction capacity. Twenty-five fertility-related phenotypes were measured as indicators of bull fertility (1,099 Brahman bulls and 1,719 Tropical Composite bulls). Measurements included standard bull breeding soundness measures (e.g. sperm motility), scrotal circumference, sperm DNA fragmentation and sperm protamine deficiency. These phenotypes were used in a genome-wide association studies that aimed to detect quantitative trait loci (QTL).
Results: Genomic analyses confirmed some QTL in both breeds (Brahman and Tropical Composites) while others were breed specific. For example, only in Brahman cattle, we identified polymorphisms associated (P < 10-16) with sperm midpiece morphological abnormalities. The QTL identified and mutations occurring only in Bos indicus suggest that the gene A-kinase anchoring protein (AKAP)14 might be related to midpiece abnormalities in Brahman. Associated mutations described herein corroborate with known genes affecting spermatogenesis, including those in the AKAP and testis-expressed gene (TEX) families. Polymorphism associations suggest that AKAP14 and TEX11 are positional and functional candidate genes in chromosome X affecting bull fertility. Most significant variants and QTLs mapped to chromosome X. These results add evidence to a mammalian specialization of X that evolved to harbor genes linked to spermatogenesis, as similarly observed in mice and humans. Some variants in X may affect more than one genetically correlated trait (r2 ~ 0.33–0.51), such as sperm morphology and sperm DNA fragmentation. Correlations and shared QTL support the hypothesis that these phenotypes have the same underlying cause: faulty spermatogenesis. In addition, heritabilities for sperm DNA fragmentation and sperm protamine deficiency were moderate (h2 ~ 0.21–0.47), being the first reported estimates.
Conclusions: Genetic improvement for bull fertility is possible through selective breeding. Genomic selection for bull fertility might be more accurate if the X chromosome mutations that underlie the discovered QTL are included in the analyses. Variants associated with bull fertility accumulate in the X chromosome, as they do in humans and mice, thus, suggesting specialization of this chromosome.

Scientific reference collection of physical samples of Australian soils. There are over 100,000 soil specimens in the collection: 70,000 fully archived and 30,000 stored specimens (still to be archive... mored). The specimen collection reflects the changes in research focus over the last 70 years and expects to continue this into the future.
The starting collection, which was received at the founding of the Soil Archive in 2003, has been complemented by more recent submissions from other agencies and current CSIRO projects from a range of Business Units (predominantly Agriculture & Food, Land & Water). Researchers can submit their soil specimens to the Soil Archive. These soil specimens will need to be accompanied by the collected soil data. For more information, see our website.
The sub sample collection of the Soil Archive holds 43,000 specimens of fine earth (< 2 mm) (10 gram duplicates of the larger specimens) that are suitable to near-infrared spectroscopic analysis. less

Data related to Naval-Sanchez et al. 2019 "Selection Signatures in heat-resistant cattle reveal missense mutations in damage response gene HELB".
Whole genome sequences from the 1000 Bull Gen... moreomes Project (Run6, Bos taurus, and Bos indicus) for breeds chosen as a reference for imputation were retrieved (Daetwyler et al. 2014; Hayes and Daetwyler 2018). This results in 440 whole-genome sequences across 18 cattle breeds.
Breeds were grouped in accordance to their phenotypes and reported genomic crosses as taurine (humpless), indicine (with hump), admixed or African sanga, the two latter being stabilized composite breeds (Rege J 1999; Hanotte et al. 2002; Rege J et al. 2007; Mwai et al. 2015; Felius, Marleen et al. 2016).
The dataset contains 186 European Taurine, 102 Asiatic indicine and 80 cross-bred genomes as well as a set of African samples composed of 12 taurine, 41 sanga and 19 indicine.

Abstract: The temporal pattern of accumulation of hordein storage proteins in developing barley gr... moreains was studied by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA), western blot and liquid chromatography tandem mass spectrometry (LC-MS/MS). Hordein accumulation was compared to the pattern seen for two abundant control proteins, serpin Z4 (an early accumulator) and lipid transferase protein (LTP1, a late accumulator). Hordeins were detected from six days post-anthesis (DPA) and peaked at 30 DPA. Changes in fresh weight indicate that desiccation begins at 20 DPA and by 37 DPA fresh weight had decreased by 35%. ELISA analysis of hordein content, expressed on a protein basis, increased to a maximum at 30 DPA followed by a 17% decrease by 37 DPA. The accumulation of 39 tryptic and 29 chymotryptic hordein peptides representing all classes of hordein was studied by LC-MS/MS. Most peptides increased to a maximum at 30 DPA, and either remained at the maximum or did not decrease significantly. Only five tryptic peptides, members of the related B1- and γ1-hordeins decreased significantly by 21-51% at 37 DPA. Thus, the concentration of some specific peptides was reduced while remaining members of the same family were not affected. The N-terminal signal region was removed by proteolysis during co-translation. In addition to a suite of previously characterised hordeins, two novel barley B-hordein isoforms mapping to wheat low molecular weight glutenins (LMW-GS-like B-hordeins), and two avenin-like proteins (ALPs) sharing homology with wheat ALPs, were identified. These identified isoforms have not previously been mapped in the barley genome. Cereal storage proteins provide significant nutritional content for human consumption and seed germination. In barley, the bulk of the storage proteins comprise the hordein family and the final hordein concentration affects the quality of baked and brewed products. It is therefore important to study the accumulation of hordeins as this knowledge may assist plant breeding for improved health outcomes (by minimizing triggering of detrimental immune responses), nutrition and food processing properties. less
