Research and field monitoring on transgenic crops by the Centro Internacional de Mejoramiento de Maiz y Trigo (CIMMYT)
The International Maize and Wheat Improvement Center (CIMMYT) aims to genetically enhance both crops and generate public sector-provided products for the resource poor, e.g., drought tolerant wheat and insect resistant ...
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 ...
Supplement to the book of abstracts and author index
Seed testing of maize and wheat : a laboratory guide
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 ...
Characterization of a global germplasm collection and its potential utilization for analysis of complex quantitative traits in maize
Association mapping is a powerful approach for exploring the molecular basis of phenotypic variations in plants. A maize (Zea mays L.) association mapping panel including 527 inbred lines with tropical, subtropical and ...
