In total, 6. Together with these new markers, a high-density intra-specific genetic map was developed that comprised 1, marker loci spanning a distance of Electronic supplementary material The online version of this article doi Globally, chickpea is cultivated on However, chickpea production is affected by various biotic stresses including Fusarium wilt, Ascochyta blight, Helicoverpa and abiotic stresses such as drought, heat and salinity. As chickpea is predominantly cultivated on residual soil moisture, terminal drought is a serious problem and will become more prevalent due to climate change and global warming Tuberosa ; Dodig et al. During the past three decades, there has been a shift in cultivation of chickpea from cooler to warmer regions both in Asia and Africa Kimurto et al.
Marker-assisted selection MAS has already proved its importance in accelerating the process of variety development Varshney et al. However, breeding efforts towards developing drought-tolerant chickpea varieties have remained slow, mainly because of precision issues in phenotyping for drought tolerance, narrow genetic base and the limited availability of genomic resources.
Nevertheless, in recent years, the availability of large-scale genomic resources Varshney et al. With the increasing efforts, QTLs for drought-related traits have been identified in several studies Rehman et al.
Recently, Varshney et al. Enriching this region with additional markers will facilitate fine mapping and precision breeding for drought tolerance. Single-nucleotide polymorphism SNP markers have become the markers of choice due to their high abundance and cost efficiency, primarily due to advances in sequencing technologies and their application to genotyping crop species Silvar et al.
For instance, the genotyping-by-sequencing GBS approach proposed by Elshire et al. This approach is now being used in several crops for diversity assessment, trait mapping, genome-wide association studies and genomic selection Deschamps et al. Detailed account on parental lines and mapping population are provided in Varshney et al.
Adapters with unique multiplex sequence index barcodes were ligated to the sticky ends using ligase buffer with ATP and T4 ligase. PCR was performed to increase the restriction fragments from each library using primers complementary to the corresponding adapters. Libraries without adapter dimers were subjected to sequencing. SNP calling The reads obtained were first de-multiplexed according to the sample barcodes and adapter sequences were removed using custom perl script.
The filtered, high-quality data from each sample was aligned to the draft genome sequence CaGAv1. The nucleotide with highest probability at each position under a Bayesian model was identified for individual RILs and the consensus sequences were saved in FASTA format. Consensus sequences from all samples were compared to detect polymorphic loci. Linkage mapping Genotyping data generated in this and previous studies See Online Resource 1 were compiled for linkage analysis using JoinMap V4.
Marker order was assigned using the regression mapping algorithm with maximum recombination frequency of 0. Caliphate gives an incredible insight into what makes organisations like the Islamic State tick.
From interviews with former members of ISIS sitting in Iraqi prisons to foreign fighters who ultimately regretted their choice and fled back home, this podcast provides an incredibly fresh take on what is important to understand about terrorist groups like ISIS. Rukmini details how the strict bureaucracy of the Islamic State meant that, in many ways, it governed more effectively than the Iraqi government.
Put simply, people care more that their bins are being collected than they do about big issues of democracy, human rights and secularism. The work done in producing this podcast is at times hard to appreciate. Rukmini casually talks of her deep connections in the Yazidi community when unravelling the horrors of sex slavery, and the incredibly detailed verification work put in to shedding light on fuzzy details in the story of an ex-foreign fighter would make anyone want to be a journalist.
You can jump into it without any knowledge of Middle Eastern politics, as important tensions are consistently explained throughout. In saying that, it still gets at the heart of serious radicalisation issues that plague governments and experts around the world.
The episode series finishes up not with a ready-made solution to these issues, but rather a seriously challenging conclusion that points to the true complexity of the challenge that ISIS and their ilk pose. One to finetune my hearing aid and re-map the frequencies and volume if needed, and one to finetune and check my cochlear implant.
Hearing aids, personal loops, extra loud phones, and more. The reality is that deaf people are socialised from a very young age to be raised hearing, and actively penalised in a variety of ways if they choose not to do so.
Furthermore, those who are born deaf often have their autonomy and agency about their personal medical decisions stripped in a paternalistic fashion, and are pressured to get cochlear implants. This kind of audiology perpetuates the notion that the deaf person must put in all the effort and resources on their end to enable communication with the hearing world.
Hearing people including audiologists , are very often not willing to learn sign language for their loved ones purely for reasons of convenience. And another: deaf people are not given full access to sign language from birth, as the only language that is wholly accessible to them. Interpreting costs are very high, and difficult to organise. Hearies, you gotta do better. When we read these texts, our bodies absorb them.
Our bodies find strength and love in connection to other bodies. Our bodies teach us about desire, about imperfection, and most importantly, about difference. QE: Absolutely.
I am imagining spaces where we speak let our bodies speak to each other. Photo taken by Amanda James 20 One of the privileges of growing up in the seventies and eighties with queers — I had a single lesbian mother and many other queer carers and friends around me — was that I learnt how to connect with my body to other bodies. My body remembers this.
It knows what a utopic queer space can feel like, and it wants more. We are at a flashpoint in culture where gender is on the agenda, constantly. Digital platforms like YouTube and online TV streaming services have changed the game.
We have Transparent and Sense8, Laverne Cox smashing it out of the park on Orange is the New Black, a thriving online community of trans and gender diverse YouTubers, and a sudden and very focussed interest in trans memoirs.
And of course the MeToo movement, ongoing conversations about toxic masculinity, institutions putting up signs for all-gender bathrooms, and language continuously morphing to meet the changing needs of trans, non-binary, and gender diverse folk. The new fab five went to visit a trans guy named Skyler, who lives in a little house with walls covered in queer memorabilia. But then I read an interview with Skyler, who talked about how hard the cast and crew worked to learn this place, and turned on the TV.
So I watched with my lover, arms around myself, late on a Saturday night. I sobbed at the end, for all of the resonances.
I sobbed for the way Skyler looked at himself in his first suit, I remember the day my partner took me to buy a suit. I had been too frightened to go alone — I have hovered outside menswear shops and not been able to step through their doors for most of my adult life.
We spent two hot hours in a dressing room at Myers while a very lovely salesperson ferried ties and shirts and shoes to us. The feeling of filling the shoulder width of a blue pin striped suit. A beautiful greenblue tie. Such bliss. I had never seen anything like this on a screen before.
PM: What does it mean to you to win the Mary Gilmore prize? QE: There is a famous quote from Don Marquis about poetry books: Publishing a volume of verse is like dropping a rose petal down the Grand Canyon and waiting for the echo. This is what I decided would happen with Rallying. I had no sense of whether it was good work or not. I was worried it was too simple, or too abject, or too dark, or just TOO much, open, wanting, aching, desiring, raw….
Since winning the award I have had a sense that Rallying is being read, which is what poetry loves: to be read, to be held, to be imbibed and savoured and carried. This book might still be a rose petal waiting for an echo, but it joins many other falling petals, and winning this prize tells me it has found a home. I say this because your writing has always seemed to me to involve a considered leap of faith that certain things are worth saying, and saying well.
QE: I love meeting readers, and I am meeting them more and more often. I think that when people read lyrical text, that text is absorbed, and it becomes part of the embodied self. It lives on in tissue and blood and grey matter, in the hands that hold the book, in the thick chambers of the heart. So when Rallying was rejected six times there was one acceptance in there but the publisher lost the funding necessary to go ahead , I almost gave up.
They told me to keep going, read my drafts, and Pam Brown wrote me a letter of commendation and told me to send it to Terri-ann White at UWA Publishing.
I had waited sometimes for nine months between publishers to get a response. We are being read. Push your texts out in whatever way you can. There is room. We need you. PM: How has your experience of parenting changed since you transitioned? This collection presents a challenge to the different narratives of motherhood.
Why is it important to challenge these narratives? QE: Everything and nothing changes about parenting when a body is in-transition.
You wrote a lot about this in your columns for The Lifted Brow in the lead up to the postal survey on Equal Marriage. What are legacies of the public debate that led up to that vote in your mind?
Yes, there are many people who are thrilled to have their partnerships recognised in Australian law as a marriage, and I will always support those who choose this path my partner asks me to marry them often and I always say yes, because it titillates and delights me , but many of us are wounded by the ways that homophobia and transphobia came to us in our homes. Our ability to parent our children was attacked. We were told we were sick and dangerous.
This is significant because often but of course not always queer homes are the one place where we can build a strong sense of safety. Friends had hand-delivered letters in their mailboxes telling them they were not welcome in the street they lived on. My response to this was to write, and write, and write, and The Lifted Brow were with me every step of the way.
These pieces will be published by Brow Books in November this year in an anthology I am co-editing with writer and academic Son Vivienne titled Going Postal. A collection of conversations from voices that fall between the cracks of YES and NO, the book includes digital art, cartoons, letters to the editor, tweets, blog posts, and opinion pieces. In many ways it is an ethnography of a community wound, a way of remembering, and a document that we can carry forwards into ongoing work for social change.
From down the road Maddison Howard Does a cherry tomato bought from Coles, taste as sweet as one home grown? How does a sprig of rosemary plucked from a windowsill garden, compare to that snatched off a supermarket shelf and hurriedly crossed off a shopping list? As a food-lover and amateur cook, eating is a popular pastime of mine. Whilst admittedly not a successful home veggie grower, I have watched a sufficient number of MasterChef episodes to know that using flavoursome, fresh ingredients is half the journey in creating a tasty ten-out-of-ten dish.
The idea of only eating what was in season, and only buying what was needed, became an old school of thought. The local milkman became redundant as major dairy factories began supplying sterilised supermarkets in bulk. Redundancy also struck the local butcher, baker, and fisherman who were outcompeted by produce imported from all over the place and made available in shopping centres for lower cost.
Food shopping became a mechanical and lonely experience, with people disconnected from not only their local producers, but also the enjoyment of picking out fresh and flavourful food.
Food shopping was once a social experience, an opportunity to interact with your local farmers and barter with your neighbours. Could we combat these feelings by upping our face-to-face time and developing real relationships? Maybe the food shop could once again become an experience, rather than a chore. Perhaps we could talk to the local farmers at the weekend markets about starting our own backyard veggie gardens and the tips and tricks to grow seasonal produce with patience, rather than fertiliser.
Maybe a community garden or a barter system for swapping homemade goods for fresh home-grown produce could result from such a conversation? Certainly, a local shopping experience is more rewarding than one that concludes with you being beeped at by a hostile self-serve machine when weighing your bag of trans-continental apples. Stand tall with your pincers outstretched. This is how you assert dominance in lobster culture.
Pursue pseudo-science that affirms your political beliefs, not what is intellectually challenging and shatters your fragile dogma. Helping others is difficult. Take care of yourself, and if someone else really needs your help, picture them having your face. Tell the truth — have you been harassing female journalists on the Internet again?
Pseudo intellectualism acts like lubricant in a circle-jerk. Do not let your larvae do anything that makes you dislike them. When speaking, ensure that you use the fewest number of words to convey what you are saying, albeit, not at the expense of your articulateness, nor the sanctity of your speech, but rather to deliver your thoughts to the listening audience in a way that is both profound and expedient. Pet a cat when you encounter one on the street.
This is how you establish dominance hierarchies and assert your role as the alpha lobster man lobster amidst a sea of cucks. I sat down with Clayton to talk crowd-pleasing pizzas, perfectionism and working in a fake police station. Finn: Australian movies have a rough trot when competing with big studio films.
What would you say about Brothers Nest stands out compared to, say, Jurassic World? But yes, it is hard to compete. But for Brothers Nest, what would you say about it that stands out?
And we went to a lot of trouble to make sure the film had production value. That nothing on screen would give you a sense of its budget. I think it looks great. The location we made absolutely sure that it was as big a character as any other character in the film. What you say about story is like what you did with Kenny. That film had a tiny budget, relied on story and an iPhone now would have better quality than whatever you shot it on then.
Scorsese is a pretty interesting sort of fella. And we make great pizzas, a lot of the time. But I often feel we shave off the rough edges, and the things that make a film personable and unique are what could make someone upset or throw someone off. What will make a film successful or not…. I just know what I like. So along with that comes the mandates, the ticking of boxes.
And that was eleven years ago. I even had a Hollywood producer ask me, after South By Southwest the indie film festival where Brothers Nest premiered , something really interesting.
He used the word comfortable. I thought that was really interesting, because it implies a safe bet. So I think we just have to encourage greater risks. That was a particular set of ingredients and circumstances that made that particular film unique. I am a perfectionist and I push myself to the brink, every time.
The negativity about that is you can set the bar too high for yourself. As a result, I hung back in the shadows for a good ten years. What was the most memorable part of that experience? It was really interesting to be a player in her world. Human beings are kind of pathetic and funny creatures, and a lot of what we do is very silly and comic, but can also be incredibly tragic and alarming and tragic.
So a lot of the lessons I learnt were more structure and story. But the biggest lesson I learnt would be the joy of how you prep a set for actors to express themselves and give them the freedom to show off. Jane went to a lot of trouble for this and we spent an entire day with the cast in a police station roleplaying with actual constables.
She was sending in different constables to bitch and bemoan about the other characters and to talk to me about their personable problems. It was so interesting to me, giving me all this back story and juice about the role of running a police station. I loved it. It was a great experience.
Party alliances, political intrigue and preference deals will be on the table for the second half of STAR and Launch will be duking it out across campus, to see who can get the most out of their Uniprint budget. But given that he was almost disqualified by a rigged court ruling, I think him being a candidate at all is a win for Maldivian democracy.
Hugh: I got confused and looked up the Moldovan election instead. My demonyms are getting very rusty. There are apparently parliamentary elections being held in Moldova this year, how exciting! Does anyone even know where the fuck Moldova is? Is it an island? For just two dollars a month you can help Moldova stop sinking.
In , the then Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif was disqualified on charges of corruption, and was recently sentenced to ten years in prison. Crazy times. His party, the Pakistan Muslim League, has nominated his brother, Shehbaz Sharif, as its candidate and is surprisingly currently leading the polls. Surprising because his brother literally just got put in prison for being corrupt. The investigation into just how corrupt Shehbaz was threatens to undermine their chances of returning to power.
This whole election is a bit of a mess to be honest. He was reading the Wikipedia page for the film Slumdog Millionaire. Make of that what you will. The current president, who is not contesting this time around, vetoed the constitutional changes set to scrap the direct presidential system, but they passed regardless.
The former Prime Minister Ivanishvili might pick up the nomination if he gets back into politics but all remains to be seen.
Cormac: The guy in charge of Cameroon has been in power since To give some context, after Mugabe went down this guy Biya is now the longest serving leader in Africa.
They predominantly vote for the opposition party. The predominantly English-speaking south of Cameroon is so disenfranchised that they tried to split off and create their own state of Ambazoni. Biya has capitalised on this violence to try delay the election.
Hugh: We were in Georgia last week, and we played a game of beer pong with this massive Georgian dude who may as well have been Robert Patrick in fucking Terminator 2. The man hardly missed a shot.
Later we caught a taxi to the Turkish border and our driver got pulled over for talking on his phone while driving. This was the clearest show of support we saw for the Black Lives Matter movement while we were in Georgia, indicative of massive political polarisation between the left and right.
Look Joshua Osih up and you will see what I mean, the resemblance is fucking uncanny. Do Osih supporters know that their presidential favourite has collaborated with artists like Justin Bieber, Jay Z and Drake? Do 11 million people follow DJ Khaled on Instagram because of his outspoken support for free and fair elections in Cameroon and a return to rule of law? With his name being mentioned more times than God in Oscar acceptance speeches, one could easily regard Weinstein as the Hollywood mogul.
However, today the name Weinstein is synonymous with sexual assault and predatory behaviour. He has been fired from his company; his wife has filed for divorce; his brother and Miramax cofounder - Bob Weinstein- has abandoned him; and he has been expelled from the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences. For all intents and purposes, the former kingpin of Hollywood has been permanently exiled.
From a distance, this seems like a victory for not only the women involved, but also for women and the way they are treated in the film industry as a whole. Perhaps this has set a precedent for future cases involving powerful men abusing women in the film industry- or possibly any other industry for that matter. Extensive and completely career damaging, yes- but how many decades has it taken to reach this point?
In other words, people knew, but nothing was done about it. Skepticism in how much Hollywood will change moving forward is deepened by the fact that women in the industry have been speaking out against their sexual abusers for years, but no such Weinstein-esque reaction has ever been afforded to them.
So how exactly has Harvey Weinstein managed to avoid drowning in a sea of allegations, for the past twenty odd years? A culture that refuses to listen The women speaking out against Weinstein are not the first wave of people to accuse powerful figures of sexual assault in the film industry.
