Screening methods and sources of resistance to rust and late leaf spot of groundnut. Information Bulletin no. 47
Simple and effective field screening methods to identify genotypes with resistance toRust and late leaf spot are described, and several reliable sources of resistance to rust and/or late leafspot were identified.
Resistance to peanut rust in wild Arachis species.
Sixty-one accessions of wild species, representing five sections of the genus Arachis, were tested under field and laboratory conditions for reaction to peanut rust (Puccinia arachidis). Most of them
Detailed mtDNA genotypes permit a reassessment of the settlement and population structure of the Andaman Islands.
This study investigates the deep structure of mtDNA haplogroups M31 and M32 in India and the Andaman Islands and identifies a so far unnoticed rare polymorphism shared between these two lineages that suggests that they are actually sister groups within a single haplogroup, M31'32.
Reconstructing Indian-Australian phylogenetic link
The results showing a shared mtDNA lineage between Indians and Australian Aborigines provides direct genetic evidence of an early colonization of Australia through south Asia, following the "southern route".
The Global Diversity of Taro : Ethnobotany and Conservation
In China, taro (Colocasia esculenta (L.) Shott) collections have a large number of traditional cultivars distributed all over the country. However, the most abundant taro genetic resources are
The earliest settlers' antiquity and evolutionary history of Indian populations: evidence from M2 mtDNA lineage
The results suggest that tribes of southern and eastern region along with Dravidian and Austro-Asiatic speakers of central India are the modern representatives of earliest settlers of subcontinent.
Cryopreservation of Citrus madurensis embryonic axes by vitrification: importance of loading and treatment with vitrification solution.
A three-step vitrification protocol, involving the treatment of embryonic axes at 0 degree C with half strength PVS2 solution for 20 min then with full strength P VS2 for an additional 40 min was more efficient than a two-step protocol that involved treatment of axes directly with fullstrength PVS1 solution for 60 min.
Collecting Plant Genetic Diversity: Technical Guidelines
A brief history of plant germplasm collecting legal issues in plant germ plasm collecting and plans, methods and procedures, follow-up for collecting and handling seeds in the field.
Evaluation of genetic diversity and relationships within an on-farm collection of Perilla frutescens (L.) Britt. using microsatellite markers
The present study demonstrates utilization of 11 microsatellite markers to explore genetic diversity held in Perilla frutescens (L.) Britt, indicative of extensive germplasm exchange among farms from different geographical regions.
