Development of EST-SSR markers for genetic diversity analysis in coconut (Cocos nucifera L.).
The EST-SSR markers generated through this study constitute useful and reliable tools for assessment of genetic diversity and marker-assisted selection in coconut and demonstrates the usefulness of transcriptome sequencing as a rapid and cost-effective methodology for the development of molecular markers.

Morphology and isozyme variation among madeira vine (Anredera cordifolia) accessions from southeastern part of Central Java, Indonesia
The analysis of quantitative and qualitative morphological characters revealed that the majority of the tested traits showed variation, indicating that there was variability among the tested madeira vine accessions, and genetic characterization based on morphological and isozyme markers obtained in this study is valuable to understand genetic variability and relationship in southeastern part of Central Java.

Breeding of Coconut ( Cocos Nucifera L.): The Tree of Life
The strategies suggested for future breeding programs, include development of new high yielding, stress tolerant and disease resistant varieties with the benefits of providing high value-added products, like inflorescence sap or high oil content, and varieties with slow vertical growth. Expand
Coconut, Date, and Oil Palm Genomics
Of the three palm species, genomics has been least developed in the coconut, where molecular tools have largely been used to characterize germplasm, and, to a lesser extent, develop quantitative trait loci (QTL). Expand
Isozyme analysis on different varieties of sugarcane.
The presence of two marker bands of resistant and stress tolerant varieties suggest that the variety Co 6304 may also be resistant to smut, wilt and moderately resistant to red rot and tolerant to drought. Expand
Isozymic and protein diversity among five sugarcane varieties viz., Co 6304, Co 85019, Co 8371, Co 89003 and Co 91010 were studied to understand the varietal interrelationship and to identify theExpand
Isozyme Variation and Genetic Relationships among Three Plumbago Species
The purpose of the study is to understand the genetic affinities and variation among three Plumbago species by means of isoenzyme viz., esterase, peroxidase, poly phenol oxidase and RestrictionExpand
Studies on Tissue Specific Variation and Developmental Variation in the Isoperoxidase Pattern of the Selected Endemic Tree Species of Western Ghats
The results of peroxidase activity and pattern changes in the seeds and adult plant leaves of the selected endemic tree species, suggest that each isoperoxid enzyme or groups of isoperxidase function in different capacities and over-all banding pattern of is operoxidases may help in the identification of the endemic treespecies.
