Molecular Assisted Breeding in Maize
Single nucleotide polymorphism genotyping using Kompetitive Allele Specific PCR (KASP): overview of the technology and its application in crop improvement
Single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) data can be obtained using one of the numerous uniplex or multiplex SNP genotyping platforms that combine a variety of chemistries, detection methods, and reaction formats. Kompetitive ...
Genome-wide analysis of tar spot complex resistance in maize using genotyping-by-sequencing SNPs and whole-genome prediction
(Crop Science Society of America, 2017)
Tar spot complex (TSC) is one of the most destructive foliar diseases of maize (Zea mays L.) in tropical and subtropical areas of Central and South America, causing significant grain yield losses when weather conditions ...
Genome-wide association for plant height and flowering time across 15 tropical maize populations under managed drought stress and well-watered conditions in Sub-Saharan Africa
(Crop Science Society of America, 2016)
Genotyping breeding materials is now relatively inexpensive but phenotyping costs have remained the same. One method to increase gene mapping power is to use genome-wide genetic markers to combine existing phenotype ...
Unmanned aerial platform‑based multi‑spectral imaging for field phenotyping of maize
(BioMed Central, 2015)
Background: Recent developments in unmanned aerial platforms (UAP) have provided research opportunities in assessing land allocation and crop physiological traits, including response to abiotic and biotic stresses. UAP-based ...
High-throughput phenotyping of canopy cover and senescence in maize field trials using aerial digital canopy imaging
In the crop breeding process, the use of data collection methods that allow reliable assessment of crop adaptation traits, faster and cheaper than those currently in use, can significantly improve resource use efficiency ...
Molecular characterization of CIMMYT maize inbred lines with genotyping-by-sequencing SNPs
(Springer Verlag, 2016)
Key message Molecular characterization information on genetic diversity, population structure and genetic relationships provided by this research will help maize breeders to better understand how to utilize the current CML ...
