Genetic analysis of reciprocal differences in the inheritance of in vitro characters in pearl millet
Abstract Reciprocal differences persist in nature because of the unequal contribution of cytoplasmic determinants from male and female gametes to the zygote. The inheritance of genetic differences isExpand
Genetic analysis of sodium content and Na/K ratio in relation to salinity tolerance in pearl millet Pennisetum glaucum (L.) R. Br.
The overall dominant nature of tolerance and the additive gene action for these salinity related characters suggested the possibility of breeding pearl millet lines through hybridization and selection to pyramid the favorable genes. Expand
