IDENTIFICATION OF GENETIC DIVERSITY AMONG PAPAYA VARIETIES IN MAURITIUS USING MORPHOLOGICAL AND MOLECULAR MARKERS
Papaya (Carica papaya L.) is a popular and economically important fruit tree that consists of various varieties worldwide. Four varieties of papaya cultivated in Mauritius namely Farc, Long Orange,Expand
Biochemical and phylogenetic analysis of Eugenia and Syzygium species from Mauritius
TLDR
Bioprospecting of endemic Mauritian Eugenia and Syzygium could be envisaged against acne vulgaris, skin hyperpigmentation and possible exploitation as phytotherapeutics. Expand
Phylogeny of Syzygium species using morphological, RAPD and ISSR markers
TLDR
The genus Syzygium includes more than 700 species globally and among these, 13 have been described as endemic to Mauritius and one is believed to be extinct, while the cluster analysis of the morphological data differentiated S. commersonii from the other SyzyGium species. Expand
RAPD marker-assisted identification of genetic diversity among mango (Mangifera indica) varieties in Mauritius.
TLDR
The mango varieties used in this study could be tapped in breeding programs aimed at improvement and the RAPD technique together with the analysis of morphological characters proved useful for assessing the diversity existing between the mango varieties. Expand
Molecular studies on the Creole cattle breed in Mauritius
TLDR
The Creole breed was easily distinguishable from the other breeds studied using molecular techniques, thus valorizing and conserving the Creole cow which is in danger of extinction. Expand
First report of Black Scurf caused by Rhizoctonia solani AG-3 on potato tubers in Mauritius.
TLDR
This is the first report confirming R. solani AG-3 as causal agent of black scurf on seed tubers in Mauritius and will contribute to the body of knowledge on potato pathology in Mauritian and at the same time assist in reducing losses associated with this important crop. Expand
Molecular characterisation of Mycovellosiella koepki , the causal agent of yellow spot disease of sugarcane
TLDR
Following restriction digestion of the ITS region, no significant differences were observed among isolates of the fungus and DNA sequencing of this region of the ribosomal DNA confirmed the absence of polymorphisms among the fungal strains. Expand
Phylogeny of Trochetia species based on morphological and molecular markers
TLDR
Molecular and morphological characterization of Trochetia species found that both T. triflora and D. mauritiana are best adapted to similar climatic conditions and have similar geographical distribution, suggesting that their close similarity may possibly be due to convergence. Expand
Conservation of Beclardia macrostachya
TLDR
When cultured in vitro, leaf explants developed nodular mass which failed to develop into protocorm-like bodies (PLBs), however, embryo rescue proved to be an efficient way for micropropagation of this orchid with a high regeneration capacity. Expand
