Nutritional profile of cultivated and wild jute (Corchorus) species
Traditionally jute is cultivated for bast (phloem) fibre production. But in rural belts of Asian, African and European countries, tender leaves from young jute plants are consumed as green leafyExpand

Genetic improvement of soybean varieties released in India from 1969 to 1993
SummarySoybean is an important oilseed crop in India and varieties with high yield potential are being developed since 1969. This study was conducted to assess the impact of breeding on yield andExpand

Discovery of large-scale SNP markers and construction of linkage map in a RIL population of jute (Corchorus capsularis)
Jute is the most important bast fibre crop of the world. Stem rot disease caused by Macrophomina phaseolina is a major constraint of jute cultivation. Recent advances in genomics and bioinformaticsExpand

Pathways associated with lignin biosynthesis in lignomaniac jute fibres
We generated the bast transcriptomes of a deficient lignified phloem fibre mutant and its wild-type jute (Corchorus capsularis) using Illumina paired-end sequencing. A total of 34,163 wild-type andExpand

A restriction-site-associated DNA (RAD) linkage map, comparative genomics and identification of QTL for histological fibre content coincident with those for retted bast fibre yield and its major
We used RAD (restriction-site-associated DNA) sequencing to detect genome-wide SNPs and construct a dense linkage map using an intercross F2 population in jute (Corchorus olitorius). The linkage mapExpand

Genetic base of soybean (Glycine max) varieties released in India as revealed by coefficient of parentage
Pedigrees of 66 varieties of soybean [Glycine max (L.) Merr.] released and notified in India during 1968-2000 were traced back to 76 ancestors. The fractional genetic contributions of these cultivarsExpand

An Overview on Flax (Linum usitatissimum L.) and its Genetic Diversity
Flax (Linum usitatissimum L.) is an annual, self-pollinated species with a genome size of ~ 370 Mb. Flax provides raw materials for food, medicine and textiles and hence it has been of greatExpand
