Maize for Asia: emerging trends and technologies proceedings of the 10th Asian Regional Maize Workshop
This is proceeding of the 10th Asian Regional Maize Workshop held in Makassar, Indonesia during 20 - 23 October 2008, and co-organized by International Maize and Wheat Improvement Center CIMMYT), Mexico and The Indonesian ...
Effectiveness of selection at CIMMYT's main maize breeding sites in Mexico for performance at sites in Africa and vice versa
The exchange of elite breeding materials across regions is an important way in which multinational maize breeding programmes access new genetic variation, improve efficiency and reduce costs. Our objectives were to examine ...
Maize diversity and gender: research from Mexico
In the future, more food will be needed to feed a growing world population. Highyielding crop varieties will play a key role in meeting this challenge. This article draws on research undertaken by the International Maize ...
Progress in maize variety development and seed systems
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 ...

Maize variety description
(USAID; CIMMYT, 2017)
The hybrids and open-pollinated varieties listed in this brochure were rated based on collaborative trials conducted annually by National Agricultural Research Programs, non-governmental organizations, private seed companies ...
Meta-analysis of constitutive and adaptive QTL for drought tolerance in maize
The response of plants to drought stress is very complex and involves expression of a lot of genes and pathways for diverse mechanisms and interactions with environments. Many quantitative trait loci(QTL) mapping experiments ...
Recombination frequency variation in maize as revealed by genomewide single-nucleotide polymorphisms
Recombination frequency greatly affects selection efficiency in plant breeding. A high-density single-nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) map integrated with physical map and other molecular maps is very useful for characterizing ...
