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 ...
Crop breeding chips and genotyping platforms: progress, challenges, and perspectives
There is a rapidly rising trend in the development and application of molecular marker assays for gene mapping and discovery in field crops and trees. Thus far, more than 50 SNP arrays and 15 different types of ...
Introgression of the crtRB1 gene into quality protein maize inbred lines using molecular markers
(Springer; Springer Nature, 2015)
Quality protein maize (QPM; Zea mays L.) has effectively enhanced levels of the amino acids, lysine, and tryptophan, over normal maize and provided balanced dietary protein for the health and development of monogastric ...
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 ...
QTL Analysis and nested association mapping for adult plant resistance to Powdery Mildew in two bread wheat populations
CIMMYT wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) lines Francolin#1 and Quaiu#3 displayed effective and stable adult plant resistance (APR) to Chinese Blumeria graminis f. sp. tritici isolates in the field. To elucidate their genetic ...
Molecular mapping of reduced plant height gene Rht24 in bread wheat
Height is an important trait related to plant architecture and yield potential in bread wheat (Triticum aestivum L.). We previously identified a major quantitative trait locus QPH.caas-6A flanked by simple sequence repeat ...
Molecular characterization of tropical maize inbred lines using microsatellite DNA markers
(Consiglio per la Ricerca e la sperimentazione in Agricoltura, Unità di Ricerca per la Maiscoltura, 2014)
An insight on diversity and relationships among germplasm is important in any breeding program for crop improvement. The main objectives of our study were to: (i) determine the level of genetic diversity within mid altitude ...
Characterization of cereal cyst nematodes (Heterodera spp.) in Morocco based on morphology, morphometrics and rDNA-ITS sequence analysis
(Managing Editors, 2017)
Morphological and molecular diversity among 11 populations of cereal cyst nematodes from different wheat production areas in Morocco was investigated using light microscopy, species-specific primers, complemented by the ...
Utilization of 1BL/1RS translocation in wheat breeding in China
(Institute of Crop Sciences, 2004)
In total , 179 predominant cultivars in recent 30 years and new breeder’s lines from main ecological zones of China were examined by SDS2PAGE and SCAR for the presence of 1BL/ 1RS. On average , 38 % of Chinese wheats ...
