Allele Mining of Exotic Maize Germplasm to Enhance Macular Carotenoids
Lutein and zeaxanthin are commonly referred to as the macular carotenoids, as they are localized to ocular tissues and their loss is associated with age-related macular degeneration. Thirty-fourExpand

New Mutations in a Delta-9-Stearoyl-Acyl Carrier Protein Desaturase Gene Associated with Enhanced Stearic Acid Levels in Soybean Seed
Soybean (Glycine max (L.) Merr.) oil from conventional cultivars typically contains ~30 g kg −1 stearic acid of the total seed oil. Increased stearic acid concentration in the seed oil of soybeans isExpand

Impact of postharvest handling on carotenoid concentration and composition in high-carotenoid maize (Zea mays L.) kernels.
High carotenoid maize is an ideal source of high value dietary carotenoids, especially lutein and zeaxanthin, in human and animal feed and has been proposed as a feedstock for high carotenoid eggExpand

Heterosis for carotenoid concentration and profile in maize hybrids.
Production of high-lutein maize grain is of particular interest as a value-added feed source to produce high-lutein eggs. In this paper, it is demonstrated that heterosis for total carotenoidExpand

Characterization of the genetic changes in a multi-generational pedigree of an elite Canadian soybean cultivar
Genotyping through the pedigrees of elite soybean [Glycine max (L.) Merr.] cultivars developed by a breeding program represents an opportunity to explore and characterize various molecular andExpand

Target and Non-target site Mechanisms Confer Resistance to Glyphosate in Canadian Accessions of Conyza canadensis
Glyphosate-resistant populations of Conyza canadensis have been spreading at a rapid rate in Ontario, Canada, since first being documented in 2010. Determining the genetic relationship among existingExpand

Using soybean pedigrees to identify genomic selection signatures associated with long-term breeding for cultivar improvement
Abstract: Genetic hitchhiking methods used to uncover selection signatures related to traits of agronomic importance in crops have primarily been used at the level of domestication by comparingExpand

Haplotype diversity underlying quantitative traits in Canadian soybean breeding germplasm
Key message Identification of marker–trait associations and trait-associated haplotypes in breeding germplasm identifies regions under selection and highlights changes in haplotype diversity overExpand
