Wheat breeders' perspectives on genetic diversity and germplasm use: Findings from an international survey
Wheat breeders working in national wheat research programmes around the world, and particularly those in developing countries, are concerned that in the future scientific advance may be limited because wheat genetic diversity ...
Impacts of international maize breeding research in the developing world, 1966-1990
The impacts of maize breeding research for non-temperate environments in the developing world by national agricultural research systems (NARSs) and the International Maize and Wheat Improvement Center (CIMMYT) over 1966-90 ...
Molecular breeding for maize improvement: An overview
(The Council of Scientific & Industrial Research, 2003)
The maize genome is one of the most extensively analyzed among the plant genomes. Consequently, maize has been at the forefront in development and evaluation of an array of molecular markers for varied purposes in genetics ...
