Transcriptomes of Indian barnyard millet and barnyardgrass reveal putative genes involved in drought adaptation and micronutrient accumulation
Indian barnyard millet (Echinochloa frumentacea) is a rich source of dietary fiber, minerals and protein. The lack of genetic resources has slowed the discovery of genes involved in its nutrientExpand

Incorporation of opaque-2 into ‘UMI 1200’, an elite maize inbred line, through marker-assisted backcross breeding
Abstract Maize is an important agricultural plant valued for its productivity and nutritive qualities. However, a deficiency of two essential amino acids (lysine and tryptophan) significantly reducesExpand

Marker-Assisted Selection to Pyramid the Opaque-2 (O2) and β-Carotene (crtRB1) Genes in Maize
Maize is an excellent nutritional source and is consumed as a staple food in different parts of the world, including India. Developing a maize genotype with a combination of higher lysine andExpand

Marker aided introgression of opaque 2 (o2) allele improving lysine and tryptophan in maize (Zea mays L.)
Maize is the predominant food source for the world population, but lack of lysine and tryptophan in maize endosperm cannot fulfill the nutritional requirements of humans. Hence, the improvement ofExpand
Estimates of genetic variability among the backcross populations involving UMI1200 and UMI1230 maize inbreds
A knowledge of genetic variability parameters, heritability and genetic advance of the traits is essential in a breeding programme to select and advance a right individual from a population. The aimExpand
Acknowledgment of Ad Hoc Reviewers
The extraordinary complexity and challenges that faced us all in 2020 fell hardest on those who are traditionally underserved, marginalized, and experiencing prejudice. The unprecedented lockdownExpand
Enhancing β-Carotene Concentration in Parental Lines of CO6 Maize Hybrid Through Marker-Assisted Backcross Breeding (MABB)
Vitamin A deficiency (VAD) is a global health problem; many people around the world, especially children and pregnant women, are VAD deficient or insufficient. Maize is known as an important sourceExpand
