Maize protein determination
This methodology is for estimating the percent protein in maize flour by determining the amount of ammoniacal nitrogen in the sample.
Use of genomic estimated breeding values results in rapid genetic gains for drought tolerance in maize
More than 80% of the 19 million ha of maize (Zea mays L.) in tropical Asia is rainfed and prone to drought. The breeding methods for improving drought tolerance (DT), including genomic selection (GS), are geared to ...

Genetic diversity and population structure of native maize populations in Latin America and the Caribbean
(Public Library of Science, 2017)
This study describes the genetic diversity and population structure of 194 native maize populations from 23 countries of Latin America and the Caribbean. The germplasm, representing 131 distinct landraces, was genetically ...
Development of a maize 55 K SNP array with improved genome coverage for molecular breeding
With the decrease of cost in genotyping, single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) have gained wide acceptance because of their abundance, even distribution throughout the maize (Zea mays L.) genome, and suitability for ...
Manual de producción de semilla de maíz híbrido
La semilla de maíz híbrido proporciona a los agricultores variedades que poseen características genéticas mejoradas, como el alto potencial de rendimiento y combinaciones de caracteres únicas para combatir las enfermedades ...

Genetic gains in yield and yield related traits under drought stress and favorable environments in a maize population improved using marker assisted recurrent selection
The objective of marker assisted recurrent selection (MARS) is to increase the frequency of favorable marker alleles in a population before inbred line extraction. This approach was used to improve drought tolerance and ...
Development of a multiple-hybrid population for genome-wide association studies : theoretical consideration and genetic mapping of flowering traits in maize
(Nature Publishing Group, 2017)
Various types of populations have been used in genetics, genomics and crop improvement, including bi- and multi-parental populations and natural ones. The latter has been widely used in genome-wide association study (GWAS). ...
