The first objective will be achieved by (i) focusing on the sequenced, diploid Fragaria vesca, a wild relative of the cultivated strawberry that will serve as a model, (ii) identifying key transcription factors (TFs) regulating fruit ripening by generating a stage- and tissue-specific gene expression map, (iii) using a candidate gene approach and reverse genetics based on gene silencing and TILLING to verify the role of these TFs, and (iv) defining the gene regulatory networks controlling the ripening process via integration of transcriptomic, metabolomic and ChIP-Seq data obtained from the stably silenced and/or TILLED lines.
Although those two green snacks are perceived as most characteristic 'wild edible plants', the rest of the taxa presented at the top of the list are the so-called berries (marjad), all fruits growing in the forest (except Fragaria vesca that, in addition to forest, grows also on the edges of forest, meadows and wooden meadows); Vaccinium oxycoccos, grows in bogs and swamps, which can, on the popular level, be also considered as 'forest' if there is not explicit need for specification.
Throughout the yard, Van Atta chose low-water natives, including Fragaria vesca (woodland strawberries) and Santa Barbara honeysuckle, which benefit birds and pollinating insects The lawn is watered by below-ground irrigation to minimize evaporation.
