Cassava brown streak disease in Rwanda, the associated viruses and disease phenotypes
TLDR
Phylogenetic analysis and the estimates of evolutionary divergence, using partial sequences (210 nt) of the coat protein gene, revealed that in Rwanda there is one type of CBSV and an indication of diverse UCBSV.
In vitro regeneration of selected Kenyan papaya ( Carica papaya L. ) lines through shoot tip culture
TLDR
An in vitro regeneration of selected papaya lines through shoot tip culture was established and IBA at 2.5 mg/l produced the highest number of roots, root length and highest percentage of rooting induction.
