Construction of intersubspecific molecular genetic map of lentil based on ISSR, RAPD and SSR markers
The current map represents maximum coverage of lentil genome and could be used for identification of QTL regions linked to agronomic traits, and for marker-assisted selection in lentil. Expand
Characterisation of 4274 accessions of common bean (Phaseolus vulgaris L.) germplasm conserved in the Indian gene bank for phenological, morphological and agricultural traits
16 accessions are identified which have complete resistance and good agronomic superiority against four most prevalent races of Colletotrichum lindemutianum and may serve as useful genetic material to plant breeders for breeding bean varieties for anthracnose resistance and high yield. Expand
Genetic diversity and structure of Pyrus accessions of Indian Himalayan region based on morphological and SSR markers
Results of this study present important information about genetic structure of Indian pear accessions which can contribute significantly to future breeding and improvement programmes in this species. Expand
Construction of a Genetic Linkage Map and Identification of QTLs for Seed Weight and Seed Size Traits in Lentil (Lens culinaris Medik.)
The main objective of this study was to identify QTLs for seed traits using an intraspecific mapping population derived from a cross between L. culinaris cv. Expand
Relative efficiency of the maize- and Imperata cylindrica-mediated chromosome elimination approaches for induction of haploids of wheat-rye derivatives
Comparisons of induction of haploid plants in the wheat-rye backcross derivatives showed that the wheat–× I. cylindrica system was superior to the wheat × maize system and was also cost effective as it shares the flowering season with wheat in sub-temperate conditions. Expand
Efficacy of different propagating methods for higher daughter corm production in saffron (Crocus sativus L.)
Three mechanical and six chemical methods were used to determine their efficacy for higher number of daughter corm production. Both the experiments were laid in RBD with three replications and dataExpand
Analysis of molecular genetic diversity and population structure in sea buckthorn (Hippophae spp L.) from north-western Himalayan region of India
Analysis of molecular variance (AMOVA), cluster analysis of genotypes based on Jaccard’s similarity coefficient using DARwin and principal coordinate analysis (PCoA) indicated sufficient genetic differentiation within populations and a low level of variation among populations. Expand
Comprehensive transcriptomic study on horse gram (Macrotyloma uniflorum): De novo assembly, functional characterization and comparative analysis in relation to drought stress
The genes and pathways identified suggest efficient regulation leading to active adaptation as a basal defense response against drought stress by horse gram and can be further utilized for exploring other underexploited plants for stress responsive genes and improving plant tolerance. Expand
Development of SSR and ILP markers in horsegram (Macrotyloma uniflorum), their characterization, cross-transferability and relevance for mapping
These newly developed SSR and ILP primers can advance molecular breeding research in this crop species and can be helpful in germplasm characterization, diversity studies, mapping and in comparative genomic studies. Expand
Evaluation of resistance sources and inheritance of resistance in kidney bean to Indian virulences of Colletotrichum lindemuthianum
Resistance from exotic accessions and locally grown cultivars evaluated against Colletotrichum lindemuthianum exhibited differential resistance to its races in Himachal Pradesh, a north-western Himalayan state of India, indicating resistance from these sources is easily transferable to the locally adapted susceptible cultivars.
