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 new stress-resistant maize genetic resources (UNDP Project GLO/90/003). Final Report 1990-1996
A synthesis of results of research under the UNDP-supported Project "Development of New Stress-Resistant Maize Genetic Resources" (UNDP Project GLO/90/003), executed by the International Maize and Wheat Improvement Center ...
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 ...
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 ...
