A better knowledge of traditional cultivars is a prerequisite to overcoming the various constraints of yam production in Benin. Using IPGRI's descriptors, 560 accessions of cultivated yams (D. cayenensis Lam./D. rotundata Poir. complex) collected throughout Benin, were characterised. Ninety morphotypes were identified and further classified into 26 cultivar(More)
The virological situation of cassava in Africa is increasing in complexity due to the number and types of viruses isolated from different locations within the continent. Here, we report the complete nucleotide sequences of both A and B components of two geminivirus species infecting cassava in the Ivory Coast and review the current knowledge of the(More)
Black pod, caused by Phytophthora spp. is one of the most important diseases of cacao occurring worldwide. Losses due to black pod caused by P. palmivora are still moderate in Côte d'Ivoire but P. megakarya causes high losses in Ghana and other Central African countries. Variation in field attack has been observed between cacao genotypes, but evaluation of(More)
A genetic analysis of resistance of cacao to Phytophthora palmivora was carried out in a 5 × 5 diallel and in a 4 × 2 NC II factorial design, involving cross-progenies and parental clones planted in the nursery and field, respectively. Resistance was scored in the laboratory by inoculation of leaf discs with P. palmivora spores with four replicates and, for(More)
Four hundred and sixty-seven accessions of cultivated Guinea yam (Dioscorea cayenensis/Dioscorea rotundatacomplex) collected from different localities of Benin Republic were analysed to study isoenzymatic variability in seven enzyme systems: aspartate aminotransferase (AAT), esterase (EST), glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (G6PDH), isocitrate dehydrogenase(More)
DNA from twenty-three late maturing cultivars of Guinea yams (D. cayenensis/D. rotundata complex) from the Benin Republic that could not be separated using isozyme markers, were examined using randomly amplified polymorphic DNA (RAPD) markers with decamer primers of arbitrary sequence. All the twelve primers tested were informative and yielded 63 amplified(More)
A conference called "Outbreaks in Tanzania-Are We Prepared?" was held in Mbeya, Tanzania, on September 14 and 15, 2015, accompanied by a training workshop on infection prevention and control for local stakeholders from September 16 to 18, 2015. The objective of the conference was to revisit past disease epidemics and to reflect on the current status of(More)
