Developing an appropriate strategy to assess genetic variability in plant germplasm collections
Abstract The value of molecular biology for monitoring the genetic status of germplasm collections is subject to practical limitations. The large number and variability of accessions held usuallyExpand

Mapping quantitative trait loci for flag leaf senescence as a yield determinant in winter wheat under optimal and drought-stressed environments
The timing of flag leaf senescence (FLS) is an important determinant of yield under stress and optimal environments. A doubled haploid population derived from crossing the photo period-sensitiveExpand
Identification and characterization of quantitative trait loci related to lodging resistance and associated traits in bread wheat
Lodging is a major constraint to increasing yield in many crops, but is of particular importance in the small-grained cereals. This study investigated the genetic control of lodging and componentExpand
Emerging Flux Tubes in the Solar Convection Zone. II. The Influence of Initial Conditions
Numerical simulations of rising magnetic flux tubes in the solar convection zone have contributed significantly to our understanding of the basic properties of sunspot groups. They have provided anExpand
Molecular marker analysis of Helianthus annuus L. 2. Construction of an RFLP linkage map for cultivated sunflower
A detailed linkage map of Helianthus annuus was constructed based on segregation at 234 RFLP loci, detected by 213 probes, in an F2 population of 289 individuals (derived from a cross between theExpand
Molecular marker analysis of Helianthus annuus L. 1. Restriction fragment length polymorphism between inbred lines of cultivated sunflower
AbstractcDNA and PstI genomic clones have been used to assess levels of restriction fragment length polymorphism (RFLP) in Helianthus annuus and to determine the inter-relationships between a diverseExpand
The repeatability of progeny means in the early generations of a potato breeding programme
SUMMARY The progenies from eight crosses between potato clones were examined. The clones were grown as seedlings in a glasshouse and subsequently from tubers in the field at two sites in twoExpand
AFLP variation in wild barley (Hordeum spontaneum C. Koch) with reference to salt tolerance and associated ecogeography.
Thirty-nine genotypes of Hordeum spontaneum were selected from three geographically separated areas (southwestern, northern, and southeastern) of the Fertile Crescent. The lines were subject to AFLPExpand
