This study deals with the characterization of 10populations of M. musculus from differentgeographical locations in India. The genetics of Indianwild mice has been completely obscure and this is thefirst report on allozyme variations in the naturalpopulation. We have used a set of 24 biochemical geneticmarkers to measure levels of diversity within and(More)
The present study focusses on allozyme variation in the commensal house mouseMus musculus, the pygmy field miceM. booduga andM. terricolor, and the spiny mouseM. platythrix. Genetic heterozygosity was estimated using a set of 24 polymorphic biochemical genetic markers. The extent of variability present inM. booduga, M. terricolor andM. platythrix has been(More)
Sesame (Sesamum indicum L.) is one of the oldest oilseed crops grown in India and worldwide. This oilseed crop has high nutritional value due to the presence of antioxidants such as lignans and tocopherols. Screening of oilseed germplasm for important nutritional attributes is of prime importance in quality breeding programs. In the present study, the(More)
Ten wild species of Vigna from the Indian gene centre have been karyo-morphologically analysed. All the studied taxa had somatic chromosome number of 2n = 22 except V. glabrescens which had 2n = 44. The chromosomes were found to be either metacentric, submetacentric and subtelocentric in type with their respective chromosome complements, and the complete(More)
