Amplified fragment length polymorphism (AFLP) markers were used to study the genetic diversity among a large set (n = 79) of inbred lines of recent elite faba bean (Vicia faba L.) cultivars with Asian, European (Northern and Southern) and North African origin. The inbred lines were analyzed using eight selected AFLP primer combinations that produced 477(More)
Tef is a cereal crop of cultural and economic importance in Ethiopia. It is grown primarily for its grain though it is also an important source of fodder. Tef suffers from lodging that reduces both grain yield and quality. As a first step toward executing a marker-assisted breeding program for lodging resistance and grain yield improvement, a linkage map(More)
We describe the first isolation of SSR (simple sequence repeat) markers for Anoplophora glabripennis, a pest of forests in China and urban trees in the USA. Ten markers were developed using FIASCO (fast isolation by AFLP of sequences containing repeats) with an (AC)(17) probe, and five markers were identified in expressed sequence tags found on the NCBI(More)
Successful prediction of heterosis and performance of F1-hybrids from the genetic similarity of their parents based on molecular markers has been reported in several crops and can be very helpful in hybrid breeding. The relationship between genetic similarities based on amplified fragment length polymorphism (AFLP) of 18 European faba bean lines and their(More)
The motion of the viscous, incompressible fluid through a porous medium with heat and mass transfer over a shrinking sheet is investigated. The cross-diffusion effect between temperature and concentration is considered. This phenomenon is modulated mathematically by a set of partial differential equations which govern the continuity, momentum, heat, and(More)
In this research a simple practical was applied to determine soil parameters using penetrometer needle apparatus. Penetration tests were performed on both coarse and fine sands. Different sands densities and penetration disk diameter were applied in the tests. Correlations between applied normal stresses and resulting penetration distances were obtained.(More)
