Microsatellite marker-based diversity and population genetic analysis of selected lowland and mid-altitude maize landrace accessions of India
Maize (Zea mays L.) harbours significant genetic diversity not only in its centre of origin (Mexico) but also in several countries worldwide, including India, in the form of landraces. In this study, DNA fingerprinting of ...
Rapid gains in food security from new maize varieties for complex hillside environments through farmer participation
This is a follow-up study of two previous papers in this series in which we discussed the effectiveness of participatory varietal selection (PVS) and community-based seed production (CBSP). In this paper we present from ...

Molecular marker-assisted breeding options for maize improvement in Asia
Maize is one of the most important food and feed crops in Asia, and is a source of income for several million farmers. Despite impressive progress made in the last few decades through conventional breeding in the ?Asia-7? ...
Analysis of genetic diversity in the North Eastern Himalayan (NEH) maize landraces of India using microsatellite markers
Population DNA fingerprinting of 48 selected North Eastern Himalayan (NEH) landrace accessions was undertaken using 41 polymorphic fluorescent dye-labelled microsatellite/Simple Sequence Repeat (SSR) markers, using a DNA ...
Pre-germination anaerobic stress tolerance in tropical maize (Zea mays L.)
Pre-germination anaerobic stress caused by temporary soil water-logging at the planting and seedling establishment stage is an important constraint for maize (Zea mays L.) production in the tropics, especially in South and ...
