Whole-genome strategies for marker-assisted plant breeding
Molecular breeding for complex traits in crop plants requires understanding and manipulation of many factors influencing plant growth, development and responses to an array of biotic and abiotic stresses. Molecular ...
Molecular breeding for nutritionally enriched maize: status and prospects
(Frontiers Media, 2020)
Genome-wide association study to identify genomic regions influencing spontaneous fertility in maize haploids
Efficient production and use of doubled haploid lines can greatly accelerate genetic gains in maize breeding programs. One of the critical steps in standard doubled haploid line production is doubling the haploid genome ...
Genetic variability and genotype x environment interactions for kernel iron and zinc concentrations in maize (Zea mays) genotypes
Micronutrient enrichment in the major staple food crops is an important breeding goal in view of the extensive problem of 'hidden hunger' caused by micronutrient malnutrition. Kernel iron (Fe) and zinc (Zn) concentrations ...
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 ...
