Genetic basis of 17 traits and viscosity parameters characterizing the eating and cooking quality of rice grain
A recombinant inbred line population derived from a cross between Zhenshan 97 and Delong 208 was used to analyze the genetic basis of the cooking and eating quality of rice as reflected by 17 traits (or parameters). These ...
Simulation approach and its applications in plant breeding
Conventional plant breeding largely depends on phenotypic selection and breeding experience, therefore breeding efficiency is low and predictions are inaccurate. Along with the fast development in molecular biology and ...
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 ...
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 ...
A modified algorithm for the improvement of composite interval mapping
Composite interval mapping (CIM) is the most commonly used method for mapping quantitative trait loci (QTL) with populations derived from biparental crosses. However, the algorithm implemented in the popular QTL Cartographer ...
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 ...
Simulation modeling in plant breeding: Principles and applications
Conventional plant breeding largely depends on phenotypic selection and breeder's experience, therefore the breeding efficiency is low and the predictions are inaccurate. Along with the fast development in molecular biology ...
Development of a West African yam Dioscorea spp. core collection
Yams (Dioscorea spp.) are important crops in some West African locations. The West African yam collections held at the IITA were characterized using the standard descriptor list for this crop (IPGRI/IITA. 1997. Descriptors ...
