The role of CIMMYT to the progress of maize in Indonesia
(CIMMYT; Department of Agriculture Republic of Indonesia, 2008)
Inclusive composite interval mapping (ICIM) for digenic epistasis of quantitative traits in biparental populations
It has long been recognized that epistasis or interactions between non-allelic genes plays an important role in the genetic control and evolution of quantitative traits. However, the detection of epistasis and estimation ...
The QTL controlling amino acid content in grains of rice ( Oryza sativa ) are co-localized with the regions involved in the amino acid metabolism pathway
The improvement of grain quality, such as protein content (PC) and amino acid composition, has been a major concern of rice breeders. We constructed a population of 190 recombinant inbred lines (RILs) from a cross between ...
Towards molecular breeding of reproductive traits in cereal crops
The transition from vegetative to reproductive phase, flowering per se, floral organ development, panicle structure and morphology, meiosis, pollination and fertilization, cytoplasmic male sterility (CMS) and fertility ...
Marker-assisted selection in plant breeding: From publications to practice
The volume of publications on the development and to a lesser extent the application of molecular markers in plant breeding has increased dramatically during the last decade. However, most of the publications result from ...
Using factor analytic models for joining environments and genotypes without crossover genotype x environment interaction
Genotype x environment interaction variability can be due to crossover interaction (COI) or to non-COI. Statistical methods for detecting and quantifying COI and for forming subsets of environments and/or genotypes with ...
