Welcome to the AgShare.Today Resource Centre
The AgShare.Today Resource Centre brings together a collection of resources related to agriculture. These include open access scientific journals and best practice guides that can be used for background reading and to support research initiatives. The AgShare Featured Resource showcases a new document each month that the AgShare team recommends to all members.
This PowerPoint presentation on molecular work relates to post-harvest physiological deterioration (PPD) of cassava. The presentation covers a range of topics: genes involved, changes during PPD, approaches to controlling PPD and next steps in this work.

Post-harvest deterioration of cassava occurs rapidly and renders the crop unpalatable and unmarketable. This is attributable to oxidative burst, altered regulation of genes and accumulation of secondary metabolites. Interactions between these enzymes and compounds, together with other data, are used to develop a model of some the principal events involved in the deterioration process.

Post-harvest physiological deterioration (PPD) involves changes in gene expression and the synthesis of novel proteins. Reactive oxygen species (ROS) and the enzymes and compounds that modulate them play central roles in PPD. This work reports on the identification and characterisation of key genes involved in several functions relevant to PPD.
