Gene flow among maize landraces, improved maize varieties, and teosinte : Implications for transgenic maize
Proceedings of a forum organized by the Mexican National Institute of Forestry, Agriculture and Livestock Research (INIFAP), the Mexican National Agricultural Biosafety Committee (CNBA), and the International Maize and ...
Three new teosintes (Zea spp., Poaceae) from Mexico
Premise of the study : Teosinte species are the closest relatives of maize and represent an important but increasingly rare genetic resource for maize improvement and the study of evolution by domestication. Three ...
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 ...
Characterization of Mexican Creole wheat landraces in relation to morphological characteristics and HMW glutenin subunit composition
One hundred lines derived from 14 wheat landraces collected in Mexico were characterized in relation to spike and grain morphology and HMW-glutenin subunit composition. Up to seven botanical varieties were identified among ...
Specialty maize varieties in Mexico: a case study in market-driven agro-biodiversity conservation
There is growing interest in the extent to which market opportunities for local crops can bridge the gap between poverty alleviation and in situ conservation. We explore this issue through case studies of the blue and ...
Diversidad genetica de gluteninas y gliadinas en trigos harineros (Triticum aestivum L.) mexicanos
(Colegio de Postgraduados, 2010)
Glutenins and gliadins of bread wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) have a key role in defining the baking quality. In order to characterize the composition of glutenin subunits with high (HMW-G) and low (LMW-G) molecular weight, ...
First report of bacterial stalk rot of maize caused by Dickeya zeae in Mexico
(American Phytopathological Society, 2014)
A bacterial disease of maize, bacterial stalk and top rot, was found in the state of Morelos in February 2011, and in the state of Puebla in July 2013, Mexico. In both cases, the incidence of diseased plants was lower than ...
