Alterations in Growth Habit to Channel End-of-Season Perennial Reserves towards Increased Yield and Reduced Regrowth after Defoliation in Upland Cotton (<i>Gossypium hirsutum</i> L.)

INTERNATIONAL JOURNAL OF MOLECULAR SCIENCES, 24(18).

By: S. Naveed*, N. Gandhi*, G. Billings n, Z. Jones*, B. Campbell*, M. Jones*, S. Rustgi*

author keywords: cotton; determinate/indeterminate growth; floral induction; meristem identity genes; annual/perennial growth habit; expression QTL (eQTL)
TL;DR: This effort identified genotypes with high-expression alleles of five floral induction and meristem identity genes from an Upland cotton mini-core collection and crossed them in various combinations to develop cotton lines with annual growth habit, optimal flowering time, and enhanced productivity.

Woodsmoke particle exposure prior to SARS-CoV-2 infection alters antiviral response gene expression in human nasal epithelial cells in a sex-dependent manner

AMERICAN JOURNAL OF PHYSIOLOGY-LUNG CELLULAR AND MOLECULAR PHYSIOLOGY, 322(3), L479–L494.

author keywords: nasal epithelium; particulate matter; SARS-CoV-2 host response; sex difference; woodsmoke
TL;DR: Exposure to suspensions of woodsmoke particles or diesel exhaust particles prior to SARS-CoV-2 infection would alter host immune gene expression at the transcript level, and data indicate that WSPs alter epithelial immune responses in a sex-dependent manner, potentially suppressing host defense to Sars-CoVs infection.

Population structure and genetic diversity of the Pee Dee cotton breeding program

G3-GENES GENOMES GENETICS, 11(7).

By: G. Billings n, M. Jones*, S. Rustgi*, A. Hulse-Kemp n & B. Campbell*

Contributors: G. Billings n, M. Jones*, S. Rustgi*, A. Hulse-Kemp n & B. Campbell*

MeSH headings : Gossypium; Phylogeny; Plant Breeding; Alleles; Genetic Variation
TL;DR: Evaluating genetic diversity across and within breeding groups, examine population structure, and contextualize these findings relative to the global upland cotton gene pool will steer future utilization of the Pee Dee cotton germplasm resources and aid in combining program-specific beneficial alleles and maintaining genetic diversity.

Woodsmoke particulates alter expression of antiviral host response genes in human nasal epithelial cells infected with SARS-CoV-2 in a sex-dependent manner

Brocke, S. A., Billings, G. T., Taft-Benz, S., Alexis, N. E., Heise, M. T., & Jaspers, I. (2021, August 25). BioRxiv, Vol. 8.

By: S. Brocke, G. Billings n, S. Taft-Benz, N. Alexis, M. Heise* & I. Jaspers

Contributors: S. Brocke, G. Billings n, S. Taft-Benz, N. Alexis, M. Heise* & I. Jaspers

TL;DR: Exposure to woodsmoke particulate particulate (WSP) prior to SARS-CoV-2 infection downregulated anti-viral gene expression in hNECs from females more so than males, indicating that WSP, specifically from red oak, alter virus-induced gene Expression in a sex-dependent manner and potentially suppress antiviral host defense responses following SARS.
