IRD CIMMYT: the apomixis project -- a revolution in seed technology sows new hope in farmers' fields
(IRD; CIMMYT, 1998)
Poor and subsistence farmers, lacking hybrid and improved maize varieties, struggle daily to eke out an existence from low yielding plants that offer little resistance to destructive insects and diseases. In many of the ...
Seed health at CIMMYT
CIMMYT’s germplasm improvement programs rely heavily on the free international exchange of maize and wheat germplasm. To facilitate such exchange, all concerned institutions, cooperators, and regulating authorities must ...
Recent advances in the conservation and utilization of genetic resources: proceedings of the Global maize germplasm workshop
(INIFAP; CIMMYT, 1988)
Even for the nonspecialist, maize genetic resources is an Inherently Interesting subject. It has an engaging history, shaped by people of unusual Intelligence and foresight; It Is currently being transformed by exciting ...
Molecular approaches for the genetic improvement of cereals for stable production in water-limited environments
Drought is a major problem for the production of the world’s five principal cereals: maize, wheat, rice, pearl millet, and sorghum. Past and current breeding efforts have met the challenge posed by drought with some success. ...
Latin American maize germplasm conservation: regeneration, in situ conservation, core subsets, and prebreeding
This publication describes progress in collaborative efforts to document, characterize, regenerate, and conserve (both in seed banks and on-farm in situ) maize seed collections from the Americas since 1998. Participants ...
Wellhausen-Anderson plan genetic resources center: operations manual 2004
In 2004, CIMMYT restructured its research programs into six new global and ecoregional programs. One of these, the Genetic Resources Program, is now home to the maize and wheat germplasm collections in CIMMYT’s gene bank. ...
User's guide for spatial analysis of field variety trials using ASREML
This manual describes an approach to the spatial analysis of field experiments based on the software package AS residual maximum likelihood (ASREML; Gilmour et al. 1999). It describes common sources of spatial variation ...
CIMMYT Maize Program, strategic plan: 1995 and beyond
(KARI; CIMMYT, 2004)
The application of biotechnology and its wide range of tools pose new challenges to governments that require biosafety frameworks be in place for the safe and responsible use of the genetically modified organisms and their ...
The flowering of apomixis: from mechanisms to genetic engineering
(IRD; European Commission; CIMMYT, 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 ...
The AMMI analysis and graphing the biplot
With the objective of facilitating researchers of CIMMYT and National Programs to compute the AMMI model and the biplot of multi-environment trials, three programs were written in SAS for computing the AMMI analysis and ...
