Genetic analysis of tropical maize inbred lines for resistance to maize lethal necrosis disease
Maize lethal necrosis (MLN) disease is a recent outbreak in eastern Africa and has emerged as a significant threat to maize production in the region. The disease is caused by the co-infection of Maize chlorotic mottle virus ...
Grain yield performance and flowering synchrony of CIMMYT’s tropical maize (Zea mays L.) parental inbred lines and single crosses
Maize production constraints in sub-Saharan Africa (SSA) are being addressed by CIMMYT and partners through an array of projects, focusing on developing and evaluating parental inbred lines and single-crosses as well as ...
Genomic prediction enhanced sparse testing for multi-environment trials
(Genetics Society of America, 2020)
AGG-Maize PO2 year 1 progress and achievements
Genomic prediction in biparental tropical maize populations in water-stressed and well-watered environments using low-density and GBS SNPs
(Springer Nature, 2015)
One of the most important applications of genomic selection in maize breeding is to predict and identify the best untested lines from biparental populations, when the training and validation sets are derived from the same ...
Discovery and validation of genomic regions associated with resistance to maize lethal necrosis in four biparental populations
(Springer Verlag, 2018)
In sub-Saharan Africa, maize is the key determinant of food security for smallholder farmers. The sudden outbreak of maize lethal necrosis (MLN) disease is seriously threatening the maize production in the region. Understanding ...
