Microsatellite diversity in tetraploid Gossypium germplasm: assembling a highly informative genotyping set of cotton SSRs
TLDR
A series of 320 mapped simple sequence repeats (SSRs) have been used to screen the allelic diversity of tetraploid Gossypium species, and race yucatanense appeared as the most distant from cultivated genotypes, exhibiting the highest number of unique alleles.
A combined RFLP-SSR-AFLP map of tetraploid cotton based on a Gossypium hirsutum x Gossypium barbadense backcross population.
TLDR
A partially revised list of the 13 pairs of homoeologous A/D chromosomes of the 2n = 4x = 52 tetraploid cotton genome is proposed and provides a firm framework for precision mapping of Mendelian components of quantitative traits in cotton.
QTL Analysis of Cotton Fiber Quality Using Multiple Gossypium hirsutum × Gossypium barbadense Backcross Generations
TLDR
A marker-assisted selection program aimed at introgressing fiber quality QTLs from Gossypium barbadense L. into G. hirsutum and VHS populations, finding that the most economically important traits, length, strength, fineness, and color were influenced by 15, 12, 21, and 16QTLs, respectively, that could be detected in one or more populations.
The influence of the plant on Aphis gossypii : some results of research conducted in Cameroon
TLDR
Studies were conducted in Cameroon in the 1990s to evaluate the development of populations of Aphis gossypii Glover on different types of host-plant belonging to the Malvaceae family and the influence of several varietal morphological characteristics is interesting.
BREEDING NEW COTTON VARIETIES TO FIT THE DIVERSITY OF CROPPING CONDITIONS IN AFRICA: EFFECT OF PLANT ARCHITECTURE, EARLINESS AND EFFECTIVE FLOWERING TIME ON LATE-PLANTED COTTON PRODUCTIVITY
TLDR
Two ideotypes of cotton varieties, Mar 88-214 and H 279-1, are identified and a breeding strategy is proposed based on seven indicators with high heritability based onFF, HH, HNR, and LFB or medium heritability (NVB, EFT, and RP1).
Assessment of the resistance of cotton germplasm (Gossypium spp.) to aphids (Homoptera, Aphididae) and leafhoppers (Homoptera: Cicadellidae, Typhlocybinae): methodology and genetic variability
TLDR
The lack of genotypic correlation between resistance to aphids and to leafhoppers demonstrated that a simultaneous improvement of the resistance is possible, and the methods for screening cotton germplasm for resistance to both pests were improved.
