Global strategy for the Ex situ conservation and utilization of maize germplasm
(Global Crop Diversity Trust; CIMMYT, 2007)
A complete listing of improved maize germplasm from CIMMYT
Targeted to maize breeders and other research partners, this compilation features tabular listings of the genetic pools, populations, inbred lines, and special purpose germplasm developed by the CIMMYT Maize Program through ...
High-provitamin A carotenoid (orange) maize increases hepatic vitamin A reserves of offspring in a vitamin A-depleted sow-piglet model during lactation 1–4
(American Society for Nutrition, 2013)
The relationship of dietary vitamin A transfer from mother to fetus is not well understood. The difference in swine offspring liver reserves was investigated between single-dose vitamin A provided to the mother post-conception ...
Independent introductions and admixtures have contributed to adaptation of European maize and its American counterparts
(Public Library of Science, 2017)
Through the local selection of landraces, humans have guided the adaptation of crops to a vast range of climatic and ecological conditions. This is particularly true of maize, which was domesticated in a restricted area ...
A genome-wide survey of maize lipid-related genes: Candidate genes mining, digital gene expression profiling and co-location with QTL for maize kernel oil
Lipids play an important role in plants due to their abundance and their extensive participation in many metabolic processes. Genes involved in lipid metabolism have been extensively studied in Arabidopsis and other plant ...
Research and field monitoring on transgenic crops by the Centro Internacional de Mejoramiento de Maiz y Trigo (CIMMYT)
The International Maize and Wheat Improvement Center (CIMMYT) aims to genetically enhance both crops and generate public sector-provided products for the resource poor, e.g., drought tolerant wheat and insect resistant ...
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 ...
