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 ...
The genetics and exploitation of heterosis in crops
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 ...
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 ...
Effectiveness of selection at CIMMYT's main maize breeding sites in Mexico for performance at sites in Africa and vice versa
The exchange of elite breeding materials across regions is an important way in which multinational maize breeding programmes access new genetic variation, improve efficiency and reduce costs. Our objectives were to examine ...
In situ conservation of crops and their relatives: A review of current status and prospects for wheat and maize
This paper reviews the current status and prospects for in situ conservation of maize and wheat and their relatives. The caricature of in situ conservation-that it imposes cultural stasis and isolation on marginal ...
