Towards a definition of a crop wild relative
TLDR
A definition of a crop wild relatives is proposed and illustrated in the light of previous Gene Pool concept theory, and the Taxon Group concept is introduced to assist recognition of the degree of crop wild relative relatedness by using the existing taxonomic hierarchy. Expand
Plant Genetic Conservation: The in situ approach
TLDR
A Practical Model for in situ Genetic Conservation N. Maxted, et al.'s work helps clarify the role of genetic diversity in in situ conservation. Expand
Defining and identifying crop landraces
TLDR
A working definition of a landrace is proposed, which is a dynamic population of a cultivated plant that has historical origin, distinct identity and lacks formal crop improvement, as well as often being genetically diverse, locally adapted and associated with traditional farming systems. Expand
Predicting quantitative variation within rice germplasm using molecular markers
TLDR
Diverse Asian rice (Oryza sativa) germplasm has been used to identify associations between various quantitative traits and RAPD molecular markers using multiple regression analysis, and it may be possible that these associations could lead the way towards marker-assisted selection during breeding programs. Expand
Detection of somaclonal variation in garlic (Allium sativum L.) using RAPD and cytological analysis
TLDR
Plants regenerated by somatic embryogenesis from long-term callus cultures derived from five garlic cultivars were subjected to RAPD analysis, suggesting the existence of a mutation-sensitive part of the garlic genome. Expand
Development of simple sequence repeat (SSR) markers for the assessment of gene flow and genetic diversity in pigeonpea (Cajanus cajan)
TLDR
A set of 10 simple sequence repeat markers have been developed, which exhibit polymorphism across a range of pigeonpea varieties, which offers an efficient system for the assessment of genetic diversity within populations of pigeon pea. Expand
Contrasting genetic diversity among Oryza longistaminata (A. Chev et Roehr) populations from different geographic origins using AFLP
TLDR
Assessing the intra-specific diversity in Oryza longistaminata and how the variation is partitioned within and between different geographic locations, using molecular markers revealed that most of this diversity is found between populations within countries than among countries. Expand
Comparison of gene expression in segregating families identifies genes and genomic regions involved in a novel adaptation, zinc hyperaccumulation
TLDR
It is shown that by comparing the transcriptional profile of segregating families with that of parent species differing in a novel trait, it is possible to narrow down substantially the list of potential target genes by using the cosegregation of markers differing in transcription level. Expand
The effects of acetosyringone and pH on Agrobacterium-mediated transformation vary according to plant species
TLDR
There was evidence to suggest that acetosyringone may suppress virulence in some strain/plant species interactions, but there was no general effect across plant species. Expand
