  • Developing Article Horizontal gene transfer (History): Chronology of horizontal gene transfer. [e]
  • Developed Article Horizontal gene transfer in plants: Any process in which an organism transfers genetic material (i.e. DNA) to another cell that is not its cellular offspring, as distinct from vertical gene transfer where genes are inherited from parents or ancestors in a lineage of cellular organisms. [e]
  • Developed Article Horizontal gene transfer in prokaryotes: Horizontal gene transfer (HGT; also called lateral gene transfer, LGT) is defined as movement of genes between different species, or across broad taxonomic categories. Prokaryotes are cells, such as bacteria, that do not have a nucleus enclosed by a nuclear membrae. Their DNA is in a region of the cell called the nucleiod, or nucleus-like material. [e]
  • Approved Article Horizontal gene transfer: Transfer of genetic material to a being other than one of the donor's offspring. [e]
  • External Article Maize: Cereal grain domesticated in Mesoamerica and subsequently spread throughout the world, and one of the most widely grown crops in the Americas. [e]
  • Developed Article Mobile DNA: Blocks of DNA that are able to move and insert into new locations throughout the genome without needing DNA sequence similarity or requiring the process of homologous recombination to enable movement. [e]
  • Developed Article Plant breeding: The purposeful manipulation of plant species in order to create desired genotypes and phenotypes for specific purposes, such as food production, forestry, and horticulture. [e]
  • Developed Article Transposon: Blocks of conserved DNA that can occasionally move to different positions within the chromosomes of a cell. [e]
