The objectives of this study were to quantify the components of genetic variance and the genetic effects, and to examine the genetic relationship of inbred lines extracted from various shrunken2 (sh2) breeding populations. Ten diverse inbred lines developed from sh2 genetic background, were crossed in half diallel. Parents and their F1 hybrids were(More)
In order to investigate the effect of long term recurrent selection on the pattern of gene diversity, thirty randomly-selected individuals from the progenitors (p) and four selection cycles (C0, C3, C6 and C11) were sampled for DNA analysis from the tropical maize (Zea mays L.) breeding populations, Atherton 1 (AT1) and Atherton 2 (AT2). Fifteen polymorphic(More)
The national apple breeding program for resistance to black spot caused by the fungus Venturia inaequalis conducted by the Department of Primary Industries, Queensland at Stanthorpe relies on a combination of glasshouse and orchard testing. Comparisons of glasshouse ratings of seedlings in 1986, with orchard observations of trees from 1990 to 1994, and(More)
