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 and 29,463 mutant unigenes, with average lengths of 1442 and 1136  bp, respectively, were assembled de novo, ~77–79 % of which were functionally annotated. These(More)
An experiment was conducted to introduce the entomopathogen Beauveria bassiana (Balsamo) Vuillemin (Ascomycota: Hypocreales) as an endophyte in jute (Corchorus olitorius), a bast fibre crop through seed treatment. Colonization of root, leaf, stem, capsule, and seed were assessed through plating on selective medium and PCR based detection using B. bassiana(More)
As a term, " next generation plant breeding " is increasingly becoming popular in crop breeding programmes, conferences , scientific fora and social media (Schnable, 2013). Being a frontier area of crop science and business, it is gaining considerable interest among scientific community and policymakers and funds flow from entrepreneurs and research funding(More)
Kenaf (Hibiscus cannabinus L.) and roselle (H. sabdariffa L.) are valuable fibre crop species with diverse end use. Phylogenetic relationship of 73 accessions of kenaf, roselle and their wild relatives from 15 countries was assessed using 44 inter-simple sequence repeat (ISSR) and jute (Corchorus olitorius L.) specific simple sequence repeats (SSR) markers.(More)
Two tetraploid species of Hibiscus section Furcaria, H. acetosella and H. radiatus, have an AABB genomic constitution. The diploid species, H. cannabinus (AA) and H. surattensis (BB), were hybridized to develop interspecific alloploid (AB) hybrids. The synthetic interspecific hybrid exhibited intermediate morphological characters, with expression of(More)
Twenty-four start codon targeted (SCoT) markers were used to assess genetic diversity and population structure of indigenous, introduced and domesticated ramie (Boehmeria nivea L. Gaudich.). A total of 155 genotypes from five populations were investigated for SCoT polymorphism, which produced 136 amplicons with 87.5% polymorphism. Polymorphism information(More)
Beauveria bassiana (Balsamo) Vuillemin (Ascomycota: Hypocreales), an entomopathogenic fungus, was introduced through seed inoculation with spore suspension as an endophyte in white jute (Corchorus capsularis L.), a bast fiber crop. Out of nine B. bassiana strains, seven, viz., ITCC 6063, ITCC 4512, ITCC 4563, ITCC 5562, ITCC 4796, ITCC 5408 and ITCC 4705,(More)

Confamiliar transferability of simple sequence repeat (SSR) markers from cotton (Gossypium hirsutum L.) and jute (Corchorus olitorius L.) to twenty two Malvaceous species Abstract Cross-species transferability is a quick and economic method to enrich SSR database, particularly for minor crops where little genomic information is available. However,(More)
Multiple DNA marker systems and complementary analytical approaches are often useful in population genetic analysis and speciation of plants. We investigated population structure of kenaf (Hibiscus cannabinus) and roselle (H. sabdariffa) for gaining insight in evolution and geographic separation of these crop species using SSR and RGA (resistance gene(More)
Mesta (Hibiscus sabdariffa) is an important bast fiber crop. In August 2011, there was an outbreak of a phytoplasma-like disease on H. sabdariffa in different villages of the northern coastal mesta-growing region of Andhra Pradesh, India, covering mainly two districts – Srikakulam and Vijayanagaram. The infected plants showed characteristic symptoms such as(More)
