MLN pathogen diagnosis, MLN-free seed production and safe exchange to non-endemic countries
Maize Lethal Necrosis (MLN) is a viral disease caused by a synergistic interaction of Maize Chlorotic Mottle Virus (MCMV) and Sugarcane Mosaic Virus (SCMV) or other viruses such as Maize Dwarf Mosaic Virus (MDMV) or Wheat ...
Variety identification number (VIN)
Gene flow among different teosinte taxa and into the domesticated maize gene pool
Maize (Zea mays L. ssp. mays) was domesticated from one wild species ancestor, the Balsas teosinte (Zea mays ssp. parviglumis) about 9000 years ago. Higher levels of gene diversity are found in teosinte taxa compared to ...
Characterization of a global germplasm collection and its potential utilization for analysis of complex quantitative traits in maize
Association mapping is a powerful approach for exploring the molecular basis of phenotypic variations in plants. A maize (Zea mays L.) association mapping panel including 527 inbred lines with tropical, subtropical and ...
Genetic structure and diversity of India hybrid tea
The most important evolutionary event in the success of commercial tea cultivation outside China in ~30 countries came about by the origin of India hybrid tea in India, derived from the extensive spontaneous hybridization ...
Whole-genome strategies for marker-assisted plant breeding
Molecular breeding for complex traits in crop plants requires understanding and manipulation of many factors influencing plant growth, development and responses to an array of biotic and abiotic stresses. Molecular ...
Maize HapMap2 identifies extant variation from a genome in flux
Whereas breeders have exploited diversity in maize for yield improvements, there has been limited progress in using beneficial alleles in undomesticated varieties. Characterizing standing variation in this complex genome ...
