Assessment of the genetic diversity and pattern of relationship of West African sorghum accessions using microsatellite markers
(Academic Journals, 2014-04)
An understanding of the extent, distribution and patterns of genetic variation is useful for estimation of any possible loss of genetic diversity and assessment of genetic variability and its potential use in breeding ...
Genetic structuring of important medicinal species of genus Warburgia as revealed by AFLP analysis
The genus Warburgia (Canellaceae) contains four tree species that are of valuable medicinal importance and are all found in Africa. Genetic diversity present in wild populations of these species is under great threat due ...
Genetic Diversity Studies on Selected Rice (Oryza sativa L) Populations Based on Aroma and Cooked Kernel Elongation
(OMICS International, 2015)
Rice (Oryza sativa L.) is the main staple food for more than half of the world’s population. Improving cooking and eating quality of rice is one of the important objectives of many plant breeding programs. Aroma and cooked ...
Genetic Diversity Studies on Selected Rice (Oryza sativa L.) Genotypes based on Gel Consistency and Alkali Digestion
(OMICS International, 2016)
Knowledge of rice genetic diversity is necessary to ascertain the germplasm conservation and the development of improved rice genotypes with good quality traits through various breeding programs. The aim of this study was ...
Genetic structure and diversity of East African taro [Colocasia esculenta (L.) Schott]
(Academic Journals, 2014)
Taro [Colocasia esculenta (L) Schott] is mainly produced in Africa by small holder farmers and plays an important role in the livelihood of millions of poor people in less developed countries. The genetic diversity of East ...
Analysis of the impact of domestication of Warburgia ugandensis (Sprague) on its genetic diversity based on amplified fragment length polymorphism
(Academic Journals, 2016)
Warburgia ugandensis Sprague (Canellaceae) occurs in East and Central Africa and is an important multipurpose tree species. Over-exploitation of natural forests for medicinal purposes and clearance for farming threaten ...
