Genetic characterization of a core set of a tropical maize race Tuxpeño for further use in maize improvement
The tropical maize race Tuxpeño is a well-known race of Mexican dent germplasm which has greatly contributed to the development of tropical and subtropical maize gene pools. In order to investigate how it could be exploited ...
Three new teosintes (Zea spp., Poaceae) from Mexico
Premise of the study : Teosinte species are the closest relatives of maize and represent an important but increasingly rare genetic resource for maize improvement and the study of evolution by domestication. Three ...
Latin American maize germplasm regeneration and conservation
During 1992-96, a collaborative project involving genebanks of 14 countries in Latin America, with economic and/or technical support from USDA under project Noah, the USDA-ARS National Seed Storage Laboratory (NSSL), and ...
Maize genetic resources
The strategy and potential utilization of temperate germplasm for tropical germplasm improvement: a case study of maize (Zea mays L.)
The organization of maize (Zea mays L.) germplasm into genetically divergent heterotic groups is the foundation of a successful hybrid maize breeding program. In this study, 94 CIMMYT maize lines (CMLs) and 54 United States ...
