Insect resistant maize for Africa (IRMA) project
(KARI; CIMMYT, 2000)
Molecular characterization of Asian maize inbred lines by multiple laboratories
This study focuses on the standardization of techniques across laboratories to enable multiple datasets to be compared and combined in order to obtain reliable and robust wide-scale patterns of diversity. A set of protocols ...
Simulation Experiments on efficiencies of gene introgression by backcrossing
Designing a highly efficient backcross (BC) marker-assisted selection (MAS) experiment is not a straightforward exercise, efficiency being defined here as the ratio between the resources that need to be invested at each ...
Use of SSRs for establishing heterotic groups in subtropical maize
Heterotic groups and patterns are of fundamental importance in hybrid breeding. The objectives of our research were to: (1) investigate the relationship of simple sequence repeats (SSR) based genetic distances between ...
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 ...
