An introduction to markers, quantitative trait loci (QTL) mapping and marker-assisted selection for crop improvement: The basic concepts
Recognizing the enormous potential of DNA markers in plant breeding, many agricultural research centers and plant breeding institutes have adopted the capacity for marker development andExpand

A marker-assisted backcross approach for developing submergence-tolerant rice cultivars
Submergence stress regularly affects 15 million hectares or more of rainfed lowland rice areas in South and Southeast Asia. A major QTL on chromosome 9, Sub1, has provided the opportunity to applyExpand

Conserved DNA-Derived Polymorphism (CDDP): A Simple and Novel Method for Generating DNA Markers in Plants
A novel method for generating plant DNA markers was developed based on data mining for short conserved amino acid sequences in proteins and designing polymerase chain reaction (PCR) primers based onExpand

Preliminary investigation of QTLs associated with seedling resistance to ascochyta blight from Cicer echinospermum, a wild relative of chickpea
Abstract. Accessions from Cicer echinospermum, a wild relative of chickpea (Cicer arietinum L.), contain resistance to the fungal disease ascochyta blight, a devastating disease of chickpea. AExpand

QTL mapping for salinity tolerance at seedling stage in rice
Salinity tolerance in rice is a quantitative trait. Rice is sensitive at seedling and reproductivestages; however, the tolerance at seedling stage is crucial for better crop establishment in theExpand

Selection of wild Cicer accessions for the generation of mapping populations segregating for resistance to ascochyta blight
In order to determine genetically diverse parents for the generation of mapping populations segregating for resistance to ascochyta blight in wild Cicer species, the genetic diversity between aExpand

Evaluation of ‘quick and dirty’ DNA extraction methods for marker‐assisted selection in rice (Oryza sativa L.)
Six simple methods for extracting DNA from rice seedlings were evaluated for marker-assisted selection (MAS). The assessment of each method was based on PCR amplification of SSR markers, DNA yieldExpand

Physiological analyses of traits associated with tolerance of long-term partial submergence in rice
Long-term stagnant flooding (SF, 50 cm water depth) greatly reduces rice yield. We assessed physiological mechanisms associated with SF tolerance in contrasting rice genotypes. SF reduced yield byExpand
