Summary: Camelina sativa, a largely relict crop, has recently returned to interest due to its potential as an industrial oilseed. Molecular markers are key tools that will allow C. sativa to benefit from modern breeding approaches. Two complementary methodologies, capture of 3′ cDNA tags and genomic reduced-representation libraries, both of which exploited second generation sequencing platforms, were used to develop …

Camelina mutants resistant to acetolactate synthase inhibitor herbicides – D.T. Walsh, E.M. Babiker, I.C. Burke, and S.H. Hulbert – Molecular Breeding – 2011

Summary: Camelina is a low-input oilseed crop of recent interest for sustainable biofuel production. As a relatively new crop in modern agriculture, considerable agronomic and regulatory problems need to be overcome. A common and troublesome problem is sensitivity to residues of acetolactate synthase (ALS) inhibitor herbicides in soils. An allele associated with the highest levels of resistance was created by …

Improvement of Camelina sativa, an Underexploited Oilseed – J. Vollmann, A. Damboeck, A. Eckl, H. Schrems, and P. Ruckenbauer – In: Progress in New Crops (ed.: J. Janick), ASHS Press, Alexandria, VA -1996

    Summary: Camelina [Camelina sativa (L.) Crtz., Brassicaceae], known as false flax or gold-of-pleasure is a spring-planted crop species. Although camelina has been cultivated in Europe since the Bronze Age, it is an underexploited oilseed crop at present. In the present investigation, results from an agronomic evaluation of new lines of camelina are reported. The genotypes tested were derived …

Genetic diversity in camelina germplasm as revealed by seed quality characteristics and RAPD polymorphism – J. Vollmann, H. Grausgruber, G. Stift, V. Dryzhyruk, and T. Lelley – Plant Breeding – 2005

Summary: A set of 130 camelina accessions from a world collection was evaluated for oil content, protein content and 1000-seed weight in field experiments grown in three macro-environments in Austria. In addition, a representative set of 41 accessions was subjected to random amplified polymorphic DNA analysis. Link: http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1111/j.1439-0523.2005.01134.x/abstract

Camelina seed transcriptome: a tool for meal and oil improvement and translational research – H.T. Nguyen, J.E. Silva, R. Podicheti, J. Macrander, W. Yang, T.J. Nazarenus, Jeong-Wong Nam, J.G. Jaworski, C. Lu, B.E. Scheffler, K. Mockaitis, and E.B. Cahoon

Summary: To identify candidate genes for meal and oil quality improvement, a transcriptome reference was built from 2047 Sanger ESTs and more than 2 million 454-derived sequence reads, representing genes expressed in developing camelina seeds. These transcriptomic data will be useful for breeding and engineering of additional camelina seed traits and for translating findings from the model Arabidopsis to an …

De novo assembly and characterization of Camelina sativa transcriptome by paired-end sequencing – C. Liang, X. Liu, S.-M. Yiu, and B. L. Lim – BMC Genomics – 2013

Summary: This is the first report of a transcriptome database for Camelina sativa. We showed that C. savita is closely related to Arabidopsis spp. and more distantly related to Brassica spp. Although the majority of annotated genes had high sequence identity to those of A. thaliana, a substantial proportion of disease-resistance genes  were instead more closely similar to the genes …

The emerging biofuel crop Camelina sativa retains a highly undifferentiated hexaploid genome structure – S. Kagale, C. Koh, J. Nixon, V. Bollina, W.E. Clarke, R. Tuteja, C. Spillane, S.J. Robinson, M. G. Links, C. Clarke, E. E. Higgins, T. Huebert, A.G. S

Summary: We generated the first chromosome-scale high-quality reference genome sequence for C. sativa and annotated 89,418 protein-coding genes, representing a whole-genome triplication event relative to the crucifer model Arabidopsis thaliana. C. sativa represents the first crop species to be sequenced from lineage I of the Brassicaceae. The well-preserved hexaploid genome structure of C. sativa surprisingly mirrors those of economically important …

Polyploid genome of Camelina sativa revealed by isolation of fatty acid synthesis genes – C. Hutcheon, R.F. Ditt, M. Beilstein, L. Comai, J. Schroeder, E. Goldstein, C.K. Shewmaker, T. Nguyen, J. De Rocher, and J. Kiser – BMC Plant Biology – 2010

Summary: There is compelling evidence for triplication of the C. sativa genome, including a larger chromosome number and three-fold larger measured genome size than other Camelina relatives, three isolated copies of FAD2, FAE1, and the KCS17-FAE1 intergenic region, and three expressed haplotypes observed for six predicted single-copy genes. Based on these results, we propose that C. sativa be considered an …

Camelina as an alternative oilseed: molecular and ecogeographic analyses – K. Ghamkhar, J. Croser, N. Aryamanesh, M. Campbell, N. Konkova, and C. Francis – Genome – 2010

David Roberts Camelina Breeding 0 Comments

Summary: We investigated the role of geographical origin in genetic variation and fatty acid content, expecting to find significant variability among 53 accessions and a link between ecogeography and both origin and key oil traits. Although sampling was relatively biased towards the Russian–Ukrainian area, this region was identified as a genetic diversity hotspot and possible centre of origin for camelina. …
