Analysis of genetic diversity in the North Eastern Himalayan (NEH) maize landraces of India using microsatellite markers
Population DNA fingerprinting of 48 selected North Eastern Himalayan (NEH) landrace accessions was undertaken using 41 polymorphic fluorescent dye-labelled microsatellite/Simple Sequence Repeat (SSR) markers, using a DNA ...
Molecular marker-assisted breeding options for maize improvement in Asia
Maize is one of the most important food and feed crops in Asia, and is a source of income for several million farmers. Despite impressive progress made in the last few decades through conventional breeding in the ?Asia-7? ...
