Genetic diversity and gene flow in six accessions of Meso-America teosintes

Abstract

The genus Zea (teosinte) has a native distribution from Mexico to Nicaragua (Meso-America region) and studies on teosinte species may help improve our understanding of maize genetics, population genetics, genome evolution and crop evolution. Moreover, since F1 hybrids between teosinte and maize are fertile, all teosinte species can potentially contribute to… (More)
