Genetic diversity of public inbreds of sorghum determined by mapped AFLP and SSR markers.
By comparing the different classes of molecular markers (SSRs, AFLPs, combinations of SSRs and AFLPs), it was determined that the distribution of the markers and the coverage of the genome by the markers did affect the classification of genotypes. Expand

The genetic control of cotton fiber quality was markedly affected both by general differences between growing seasons and by specific differences in water management regimes, suggesting that improvement of fiber quality under water stress may be even more complicated than improvement of this already complex trait under well-watered conditions.

How the information contained in this map is being integrated into a sorghum physical map for map-based gene isolation, comparative genome analysis, and as a source of sequence-ready clones for genome sequencing projects is discussed. Expand
The Effect of Tropical Sorghum Conversion and Inbred Development on Genome Diversity as Revealed by High-Resolution Genotyping
Graphical genotypes generated for a set of sorghum germplasm reveal genomic signatures of historical breeding decisions, especially evidence of directional selection during the conversion of tropical accessions to temperate adaptation. Expand

In genetically equivalent cotton populations grown under well-watered and water-limited conditions, productivity and quality were shown to be partly accounted for by different quantitative trait loci (QTLs), indicating that adaptation to both arid and favorable conditions can be combined in the same genotype.

Intraspecific variation of recombination rate in maize
The present work provides the most comprehensive study on intraspecific variation of recombination rates and crossover interference strength in eukaryotes and should pave the way for precise identification of genes controlling recombinations rates in maize and other organisms. Expand
Integrated karyotyping of sorghum by in situ hybridization of landed BACs.
The results indicate that linkage and physical maps of sorghum allow facile selection of BAC clones according to position and FISH-signal quality, which will enable development of a high-quality molecular cytogenetic map and an integrated genomics system for sorghums, without need of chromosome flow sorting or microdissection.

Genetic Diversity among Sorghum Races and Working Groups Based on AFLPs and SSRs
Cluster and principal coordinate analyses indicate that the guinea, kafi r and intermediate lines in this study are more closely related than phenotype would suggest. Expand
Linkage Disequilibrium with Linkage Analysis of Multiline Crosses Reveals Different Multiallelic QTL for Hybrid Performance in the Flint and Dent Heterotic Groups of Maize
Two new nested association mapping designs adapted to European conditions were derived from the complementary dent and flint heterotic groups of maize, with favorable allelic effects detected in both groups open perspectives for improving biomass production. Expand
A molecular cytogenetic map of sorghum chromosome 1. Fluorescence in situ hybridization analysis with mapped bacterial artificial chromosomes.
The successful development of multiprobe FISH cocktails suggests that it is feasible to develop chromosome-specific "paints" from genomic resources rather than flow sorting or microdissection and that when applied to pachytene chromatin, such cocktails provide an especially powerful framework for mapping.
