UNLABELLED PREMISE OF THE STUDY We developed microsatellite markers in the legume Lens culinaris from publicly available databases to enrich the limited marker resource available for the crop. • METHODS AND RESULTS Eighty-two primer sets were identified using expressed sequence sets of L. culinaris available in the National Center for Biotechnology(More)
Low productivity of pilosae type lentils grown in South Asia is attributed to narrow genetic base of the released cultivars which results in susceptibility to biotic and abiotic stresses. For enhancement of productivity and production, broadening of genetic base is essentially required. The genetic base of released cultivars can be broadened by using(More)
Genetic diversity among 83 lentil genotypes including 23 wild types, 19 indigenous varieties, 5 exotic lines and 36 advanced breeding lines was studied using molecular markers. A total of 112 amplicons were produced using 15 RAPD and 8 SSR markers. Dendrogram based on Jaccard similarity coefficient and UPGMA analysis revealed two major clusters and one(More)
Drought is one of the major abiotic stresses affecting wheat yield. A recurrent selection program was conducted to improve the drought tolerance and yield of bread wheat using drought tolerant advanced breeding lines from a drought tolerant x susceptible cross (HI 1500 x HUW 510). The parental lines were evaluated for yield, biomass and harvest index (HI)(More)
A study was conducted to evaluate the genetic divergence for morphological and phenological traits under rainfed conditions in wheat. Seed material comprised of the 294 wheat genotypes used for this study and grouped into six clusters. Among the six clusters, cluster IV contained 86 and cluster I had 68 genotypes, followed by 12 genotypes in cluster V.(More)
