The flowering of apomixis : from mechanisms to genetic engineering
(CIMMYT; IRD; European Commission, 2001)
Apomixis, the asexual reproduction of plants through seeds, has received increasing attention as technological advances have led to a rapid increase in knowledge about cellular biology, molecular genetics, and the mechanisms ...

Indirect selection using reference and probe genotype performance in multi-environment trials
There is a substantial challenge in identifying appropriate cultivars from databases for introduction into a breeding program. We propose an indirect selection procedure that illustrates how strategically designed ...
Bayesian estimation of the additive main effects and multiplicative interaction model
Much research has been conducted using least squares estimates of the linear?bilinear model additive main effects and multiplicative interaction (AMMI). The main difficulty with the standard linear?bilinear models is that ...
Genomic selection and prediction in plant breeding
The availability of thousands of genome-wide molecular markers has made possible the use of genomic selection in plants and animals. However, the evaluation of models for genomic selection in plant breeding populations ...
Identification, validation and high throughput genotyping of transcribed gene SNPs in cassava
The availability of genomic resources can facilitate progress in plant breeding through the application of advanced molecular technologies for crop improvement. This is particularly important in the case of less researched ...
Gene effects and heterosis for grain iron and zinc density in pearl millet (Pennisetum glaucum (L.) R. Br)
Pearl millet [Pennisetum glaucum (L.) R. Br.] is a major warm-season cereal, grown primarily for grain production in the arid and semi-arid tropical regions of Asia and Africa. Iron (Fe) and zinc (Zn) deficiencies have ...
