Genetic diversity among rice cultivars from Bangladesh and North East India was assessed using a custom 384-SNP microarray assay. A total of 511 cultivars were obtained from several sources, choosing landraces likely to be from the aus subpopulation and modern improved cultivars from Bangladesh. Cultivars from the OryzaSNP set and Rice Diversity Panel 1(More)
Association analysis was applied to a panel of accessions of Assam rice (indica) using 98 SSR markers for dormancy-related traits and cooking quality. Analysis of population structure revealed 10 subgroups in the population. The mean r 2 and D ′ value for all intrachromosomal loci pairs was 0.24 and 0.51, respectively. Linkage disequilibrium between linked(More)
Pigmented rice is a good source of nutraceuticals because it contains antioxidants such as anthocyanins, flavonoid and other phenolic compound as well as essential minerals. On an average, the three mineral contents in rice genotypes followed an order of Zn > Fe > Cu. The anthocyanin content among 22 pigmented genotypes ranged from 1.56 to 7.56 mg cyanidine(More)
Calamus species yields the raw materials for the cane industry. However, the extraction of the cane from the forests is being carried out indiscriminately without considering the sustenance of the species. Plants of both sexes should co-exist for reproductive success. The sex of Calamus plants can be identified only after flowering and hence proper planning(More)
