Assessment of genetic diversity is an essential component in germplasm characterization and utilization. Molecular markers serve as a valuable tool to assess the genetic variation and germplasm identification, which play a key role for faba (Vicia faba L.) bean breeding. In this study, we analyzed the genetic diversity of faba bean accessions based on(More)
Faba bean (Vicia faba L.) ranks fourth in food legume crop production in the world. However, drought is a potential major constraint to faba bean production and improved faba bean cultivars and development of drought-resistant varieties play a key role in enhancing faba bean crop production. In this study, suppression subtractive hybridization (SSH)(More)
— In several vegetable species a relationship between the metabolism of active oxygen species and breakage of dormancy has been established. However, scarce information is available on the role of oxidative stress in potato tubers. The purpose of this investigation is to study the effect of CAT genetic modification on the dormancy break of potato tubers. A(More)
The genetic diversity of 21 faba bean populations was examined using morphological and molecular markers. DNA was extracted from 189 individuals and 8 microsatellite markers were genotyped individually in these 21 populations. A total of 53 alleles were obtained in all populations, with an average of 6.62 alleles per locus. The expected and observed(More)
