Genetic diversity among Jatropha species as revealed by RAPD markers
The overall grouping pattern of clustering corresponds well with principal component analysis confirming patterns of genetic diversity observed among the species and provides valid guidelines for collection, conservation and characterization of Jatropha genetic resources. Expand
Analysis of Genetic Diversity in Napier Grass (Pennisetum purpureum Schum) as Detected by RAPD and ISSR Markers
The UPGMA clustering of genotypes eventhough was not similar when RAPD and ISSR derived dendrograms were compared, but showed a greater correspondence with geographical identity in both the marker systems employed. Expand
Interspecific hybridization between Vigna unguiculata (L.) Walp. and V. vexillata (L.) A. Rich. through in vitro embryo culture
The hybrid regenerants exhibited high enzyme activity for three enzymes viz., peroxidase, polyphenol oxidase and phenyl alanine ammonia lyase over the cultivated parent which may be useful in conferring resistance against viral pathogens. Expand
Molecular diversity in the primary and secondary gene pools of genus Oryza
The results of this study show that the diploid species possessing C genomes are distinct from their allotetraploid counterparts possessing BBCC and CCDD genomes indicating a wider genomic differentiation in their evolutionary process. Expand
A simple and rapid single kernel screening method to estimate amylose content in rice grains.
The proposed CGD method can be used to screen samples for AC rapidly, with a single rice caryopsis, without any costly equipment and can be especially suitable for screening of mutants and segregants with altered AC in large breeding populations. Expand
Validation and Applicability of Single Kernel-Based Cut Grain Dip Method for Amylose Determination in Rice
Amylose content (AC) is an important parameter responsible for the cooking quality of rice. Different methods with varied principles are being employed to determine the AC on the basis of theirExpand
