Genetic mapping techniques can be used to study the interaction between two different genomes after hybridization. This study investigated a Saccharum officinarum (Green German or GG, 2n approximately 11x approximately 110) x S. spontaneum (IND 81-146 or IND, 2n approximately 7x approximately 56) interspecific cross. Segregation of 193 microsatellite (SSR)(More)
Biofuels and bio-based products can be produced from a wide variety of herbaceous feedstocks. To supply enough biomass to meet the needs of a new bio-based economy, a suite of dedicated biomass species must be developed to accommodate a range of growing environments throughout the USA. Researchers from the US Department of Agriculture’s Agricultural(More)
In the early stages of sugarcane (Saccharum spp.) selection programs, large numbers of clones are tested in non-replicated plots. Field trends are likely to affect the performance of these non-replicated experimental genotypes and mask their true genetic potential. The purpose of this study was to evaluate different spatial analyses for their relative(More)
Switchgrass (Panicum virgatum L.) exists as multiple cytotypes with octaploid (8x) and tetraploid (4x) populations occupying distinct, overlapping ranges. These cytotypes tend to show differences in adaptation, yield potential, and other characters, but the specific result of whole-genome duplication is not clear and 8x and 4x switchgrass populations are(More)
