The inheritance of chemical phenotype in Cannabis sativa L.
Four crosses were made between inbred Cannabis sativa plants with pure cannabidiol (CBD) and pure Delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) chemotypes, and it is suggested that codominance is due to the codification by the two alleles for different isoforms of the same synthase, having different specificity for the conversion of the common precursor cannabigerol into CBD or THC.

A 400-bp RAPD marker generated by a primer of random decamer sequence has been found associated with the male sex phenotype in 14 dioecious cultivars and accessions of hemp and is suitable for a precise, early and rapid identification of male plants during breeding programs of dIOecious and monoecious hemp.
Improvement of Crop Plants for Industrial End Uses
- P. Ranalli
The use of functional genomics to understand components of plant metabolism and the regulation occurring at molecular, cellular and whole plant levels and the potential market for bio-based products in the context of European greenhouse gas reduction strategies is explored.
Current status and future scenarios of hemp breeding
- P. Ranalli
The advances in basic and applied research make it possible to design methods for the identification of superior parents and cross combinations and the development of selection schemes that rely on less labour-intensive and time-consuming methods.
Comparison of Hemp Varieties Using Random Amplified Polymorphic DNA Markers
The correlations among the molecular data and the genetic structure of the different cultivars and the consequences in relation to variety discrimination in hemp are discussed.
Hemp as a raw material for industrial applications
It is important to update the knowledge on this crop to understand whether it is a really sustainable, alternative and economically rewarding crop, and what contribution plant breeding, agronomical practice, and processing techniques are making, or could further make, to improve the relevant traits.
