Application of identified QTL-marker associations in rice quality improvement through a design-breeding approach
A permanent mapping population of rice consisting of 65 non-idealized chromosome segment substitution lines (denoted as CSSL1 to CSSL65) and 82 donor parent chromosome segments (denoted as M1 to M82) was used to identify ...
Development, characterization and utilization of microsatellite markers in pigeonpea
Pigeonpea is a major legume of the semi-arid tropics that has been neglected in terms of molecular breeding. The objectives of this study were to develop microsatellite markers and evaluate their potential for use in ...
Structural equation modelling for studying genotype x environment interactions of physiological traits affecting yield in wheat
In plant physiology and breeding, it is important to understand the causes of genotyperenvironment interactions (GEIs) of complex traits such as grain yield. It is difficult to study the underlying sequential biological ...
The molecularization of public sector crop breeding: Progress, problems, and prospects
Molecular markers and genetic maps are available for most important food crops. Marker-trait associations have been established for a diverse array of traits in these crops, and research on marker/quantitative trait loci ...
