Polygenes

Numerous genes contributing equally toward a given phenotypic effect as found in the continuous variation of many quantitative traits, each having small and equal effects; mainly additive and subject to environmental influence.

Microbiota

Microflora and microfauna.

Polyembryonic

Multiple embryos are present in one caryopsis.

Jul

Microbe

Synonymous with microorganism. Very small living organism.

Micro climate

The climatic condition of a small area, such as a ricefield, resulting from the modification of the general climatic conditions by local differences in elevation or exposure. Also the environmental conditions below the crop canopy.

Jul

Polycyclic

Completes many cycles in one year.

11
Jul

Polycross nursery

Plants specifically arranged to facilitate random outcrossing to develop an improved line or variety.

11
Jul

Methylation

Enzymatic addition of Methyl (CH3) group to DNA which causes inactivation of that region. Usually CPG nucleotide pairs are target for this addition.

11
Jul

Polycross

Intercrossing of a group of cultivars or clones in isolation so as to allow random pollination.

Jul

Metering device (seed)

The part of a seeder or planter that controls the amount (volume or number) of seeds to be deposited along the row or in a hill.

Jul

Polycloning site

A short segment in a DNA vector that has been engineered to contain a number of cleavage sites for different restriction enzymes to enhance the versatility of the vector.

Jul

Metabolism

The physical, chemical or biochemical processes in living organisms for maintaining growth, development, and reproduction. A collective term for all chemical changes in living cells.

Jul

Polycaryoptic

Several pistils with multiple ovaries are present in the spikelet.

Jul

Messenger RNA (m-RNA)

A chain of single-stranded ribonucleotides that codes for a specific protein. Product from DNA by transcription which serves as the information carrier for translation into proteins in the ribosomes.

Jul

Mesophytes

The plants that grow in an environment having a moderate supply of water. Mesophytes tend to have root systems and vascular tissues that are well-developed, and many species can grow to great heights as a result. These plants adapt to quite diverse environments. These include practically all of the economically important agricultural plants.

Jul

Poly Ethylene Glycol (PEG)

A chemical which promotes the fusion between protoplasts and plasmid.

11
Jul

Mesophyll tissues

The soft tissue of a leaf between the top and bottom epidermis (outermost layer of cells or protective covering of a plant or plant part).

11
Jul

Pollination

The transfer of pollen from the anther to stigma (the female organs) of a flower.

11
Jul

Mesocotyl

The internode between the coleoptile node and the point of union of the culm and the root in the young seedling. The mesocotyl pushes the coleoptile above the soil surface.

11
Jul

Pollen shedding

The falling of pollen grains from the anthers to the pistil.
