Marker assisted introgression of opaque2 gene into herbicide resistant elite maize inbred lines
(Academic Journals, 2006)
Marker assisted selection in combination with conventional breeding can greatly accelerate the introgression of modified opaque2 genotype into herbicide resistant maize. By combining these two approaches, time and costs ...
Genomic selection in wheat breeding using genotyping-by-sequencing
(Crop Science Society of America, 2012)
Genomic selection (GS) uses genome-wide molecular markers to predict breeding values and make selections of individuals or breeding lines prior to phenotyping. Here we show that genotyping-by-sequencing (GBS) can be used ...
Molecular breeding for maize improvement: An overview
(The Council of Scientific & Industrial Research, 2003)
The maize genome is one of the most extensively analyzed among the plant genomes. Consequently, maize has been at the forefront in development and evaluation of an array of molecular markers for varied purposes in genetics ...
Genomic-enabled prediction based on molecular markers and pedigree using the Bayesian linear regression package in R
(Crop Science Society of America, 2010)
The availability of dense molecular markers has made possible the use of genomic selection in plant and animal breeding. However, models for genomic selection pose several computational and statistical challenges and require ...
The genetic dissection of quantitative traits in crops
(Pontificia Universidad Católica de Valparaíso, 2010)
Most traits of interest in plant breeding show quantitative inheritance, which complicate the breeding process since phenotypic performances only partially reflects the genetic values of individuals. The genetic variation ...
Allelic variation at the TaZds-A1 locus on wheat chromosome 2A and development of a functional marker in common wheat
Ζ (zeta)-carotene desaturase (ZDS) is a key enzyme for carotenoid biosynthesis, demonstrating high association with the yellow pigment (YP) content in wheat grain. Cloning ZDS gene and developing functional markers are ...
Mapping of wheat stripe rust resistance gene YrZH84 with RGAP markers and its application
(Institute of Crop Sciences, 2009)
Zhou 8425B, with an effective stripe rust resistance gene YrZH84, is a hall-mark parent line of wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) in the Yellow-Huai Rivers wheat growing region. An F2 population derived from the cross Zhou ...
Characterization of mandarin (Citrus spp.) using morphological and AFLP markers
Sixty-three mandarin (Citrus spp.) cultivars from the collection of the Campo Citrícola Experimental Francisco Villa, Tamaulipas, Mexico, were evaluated using morphological and Amplified Fragment Length Polymorphism (AFLP) ...
Molecular mapping of powdery mildew resistance gene in wheat cultivar Jimai 22
(Institute of Crop Sciences, 2009)
Wheat powdery mildew, caused by Blumeria graminis f. sp. tritici, is one of the most important diseases of wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) worldwide. Breeding resistant wheat cultivars is the most economical and effective ...
Mapping QTLs for polyphenol oxidase activity in a DH population from common wheat
(Institute of Crop Sciences, 2005)
The polyphenol oxidase ( PPO) activity is a major factor to cause an undesirable brown discoloration of wheat based end products during processing or storage. A double haploid (DH) population with 71 lines derived from ...
