Detection of genetic integrity of conserved maize (Zea mays L.) germplasm in genebanks using SNP markers
Twenty maize landrace accessions regenerated and conserved in five maize genebanks were investigated for genetic integrity using 1,150 Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms (SNPs) and 235 SNP haplotypes. The genetic diversity ...
Nucleotide diversity and molecular evolution of the PSY1 gene in Zea mays compared to some other grass species
Phytoene synthase (PSY), which is encoded by the phytoene synthase 1 (PSY1) gene, is the first rate-limiting enzyme in the plant carotenoid biosynthetic pathway. In order to examine the genetic diversity and evolution ...
Genetic analysis of tropical midaltitude-adapted maize populations under stress and nonstress conditions
(Crop Science Society of America, 2018)
Maize (Zea mays L.) yield in sub-Saharan Africa (SSA) is low because of both abiotic and biotic constraints, and limited availability or use of improved seed in some areas. This study was conducted (i) to estimate combining ...
Genomic dissection of leaf angle in maize (Zea mays L.) using a four-way cross mapping population
(Public Library of Science, 2015)
Increasing grain yield by the selection for optimal plant architecture has been the key focus in modern maize breeding. As a result, leaf angle, an important determinant of plant architecture, has been significantly improved ...
