Genetic dissection of grain weight in bread wheat was undertaken through both genome-wide quantitative trait locus (QTL) interval mapping and association mapping. QTL interval mapping involved preparation of a framework linkage map consisting of 294 loci {194 simple sequence repeats (SSRs), 86 amplified fragment length polymorphisms (AFLPs) and 14 selective(More)
Association mapping was undertaken in common wheat to identify markers associated with pre-harvest sprouting tolerance (PHST). For this purpose, a population of 242 wheat genotypes and 250 SSR markers were used. The population used consisted of diverse germplasm, which carried sufficient phenotypic variation for PHS for conducting association mapping. The(More)
Genetic diversity was examined in a collection of 263 Indian bread wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) cultivars using 90 SSR markers. These cultivars were classified into Group I (pre-green revolution cultivars) and Group II cultivars (post-green revolution cultivars). SSR markers were also classified into Set-I SSRs (42 random genomic SSRs) and Set-II SSRs (48(More)
Common wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) contributes substantially to global food and nutritional security. Thus, an important goal of wheat breeding is to develop high-yielding varieties with better nutritional quality and resistance to all major diseases. During the present study, in the background of a popular elite wheat cultivar PBW343, we pyramided eight(More)
Common wheat is unique in providing a large number of diverse end-products, including chapati, biscuits, bread and noodles. Grain weight and other grain traits contribute to grain yield and milling quality. Many earlier QTL studies reported at least 332 QTLs for grain traits including grain weight. We conducted a QTL analysis (composite interval mapping) of(More)
We report the first complete microsatellite genetic map of jute (Corchorus olitorius L.; 2n = 2 × = 14) using an F6 recombinant inbred population. Of the 403 microsatellite markers screened, 82 were mapped on the seven linkage groups (LGs) that covered a total genetic distance of 799.9 cM, with an average marker interval of 10.7 cM. LG5 had the longest and(More)
Wheat (Triticum aestivum L.), with a large genome (16000 Mb) and high proportion ( approximately 80%) of repetitive sequences, has been a difficult crop for genomics research. However, the availability of extensive cytogenetics stocks has been an asset, which facilitated significant progress in wheat genomic research in recent years. For instance, fairly(More)
BACKGROUND Hemodynamic responses of laryngoscopy and laparoscopy should be attenuated by the appropriate premedication, smooth induction, and rapid intubation. The present study evaluated the clinical efficacy of oral premedication with pregabalin or clonidine for hemodynamic stability during laryngoscopy and laparoscopic cholecystectomy. METHODS A total(More)
The Government of India initiated a cash incentive scheme--Janani Suraksha Yojana (JSY)--to promote institutional deliveries with an aim to reduce maternal mortality ratio (MMR). An observational study was conducted in a tertiary-care hospital of Madhya Pradesh, India, before and after implementation of JSY, with a sample of women presenting for(More)
