Insect resistant maize for Africa (IRMA) project
(KARI; CIMMYT, 2000)
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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
