Characterization of a global germplasm collection and its potential utilization for analysis of complex quantitative traits in maize
Association mapping is a powerful approach for exploring the molecular basis of phenotypic variations in plants. A maize (Zea mays L.) association mapping panel including 527 inbred lines with tropical, subtropical and ...
Maize diseases : a guide for field identification
Intended for field use by agricultural technicians and maize farmers, this pocket-size manual carries descriptions and color photographs for more than 50 fungal, bacterial, viral, and mollicute diseases that affect the ...
Evaluation of Zapalote Chico accessions for conservation and enhancement
(Consiglio per la Ricerca e la sperimentazione in Agricoltura, Unità di Ricerca per la Valorizzazione qualitativa dei cereali, 2006)
Conserving traditional maize (Zea mays L.) landraces grown by farmers in Latin America can con- tribute to food security. Core subsets of such landraces that represents that diversity can be used for their en- hancement. ...
Developing drought- and low N-tolerant maize : proceedings of a symposium, March 25-29, 1996, CIMMYT, El Batan, Mexico
Proceedings of a symposium hosted at CIMMYT in 1996, this publication describes the incidence and intensity of drought and low nitrogen conditions for maize in the tropics, the physiology of drought tolerance and the ...
Ensayos para la semilla de maíz y de trigo : manual de laboratorio
Seed testing of maize and wheat : a laboratory guide
Statistical properties of QTL linkage mapping in biparental genetic populations
Quantitative trait gene or locus (QTL) mapping is routinely used in genetic analysis of complex traits. Especially in practical breeding programs, questions remain such as how large a population and what level of marker ...
Meta-analysis of constitutive and adaptive QTL for drought tolerance in maize
The response of plants to drought stress is very complex and involves expression of a lot of genes and pathways for diverse mechanisms and interactions with environments. Many quantitative trait loci(QTL) mapping experiments ...
