Analysis of genetic diversity in the North Eastern Himalayan (NEH) maize landraces of India using microsatellite markers
Population DNA fingerprinting of 48 selected North Eastern Himalayan (NEH) landrace accessions was undertaken using 41 polymorphic fluorescent dye-labelled microsatellite/Simple Sequence Repeat (SSR) markers, using a DNA ...
Assessing the potential of labelling schemes for in situ landrace conservation: an example from India
This paper addresses the potential of in situ crop landrace conservation, employing market-based instruments, which pre-requires that (1) consumers hold positive use-value for the landrace attribute and (2) their willingness ...
Characterization of the effect of a QTL for drought resistance in rice, qtl12.1 , over a range of environments in the Philippines and eastern India
A large-effect QTL for grain yield under drought conditions (qtl12.1) was reported in a rice mapping population derived from Vandana and Way Rarem. Here, we measured the effect of qtl12.1 on grain yield and associated ...
