CGIAR Operations under the Plant Treaty Framework
(Crop Science Society of America (CSSA), 2019)
The history of CGIAR and the development and implementation of the International Treaty on Plant Genetic Resources for Food and Agriculture ("Plant Treaty") are closely intertwined. In accordance with the agreements that ...
The development of quality control genotyping approaches: a case study using elite maize lines
(Public Library of Science, 2016)
Quality control (QC) of germplasmidentity and purity is a critical component of breeding and conservation activities. SNP genotyping technologies and increased availability of markers provide the opportunity to employ ...
The abandonment of maize landraces over the last 50 years in Morelos, Mexico: a tracing study using a multi-level perspective
Understanding the causes of maize landrace loss in farmers’ field is essential to design effective conservation strategies. These strategies are necessary to ensure that genetic resources are available in the future. ...
Identifying loci with breeding potential across temperate and tropical adaptation via EigenGWAS and EnvGWAS
Understanding the genomic basis of adaptation in maize is important for gene discovery and the improvement of breeding germplasm, but much remains a mystery in spite of significant population genetics and archaeological ...
