Potentials and Challenges of Genomics for Breeding Cannabis Cultivars

The main advances in the genomic field of this species are resumed and a discriminant and polymorphic panel of SSR markers are provided as a valuable tool for future marker assisted breeding programs.

Evaluation of genetic integrity of pearl millet seeds during aging by genomic-SSR markers

The optimal sample size of pearl millet was 60 and the critical point of germination rate to renew germplasm resources was 68.23% and these finds might contribute to the scientific study and the safe conservation of pearl Millet.

The origin of the genus Cannabis

The populations were well differentiated by this marker set locating 79% of the variation among populations (AMOVA).By comparison with plastomes from the closest related genus Humulus, haplotype ‘B’ could be identified as haplotype of the common ancestor of both genera.

Low diversity in the native populations of Croton tetradenius Baill. when using SNP markers: a future crop with an insecticidal activity

The discriminant analysis of principal components showed a great overlap of the Lagarto and Poço Redondo plants, indicating that the recent habitat fragmentation may isolate the populations, and it will be useful to increase the representation of the existing genetic diversity of C. tetradenius that is now maintained at the Active Germplasm Bank.

Developing and Testing Molecular Markers in Cannabis sativa (Hemp) for Their Use in Variety and Dioecy Assessments

This study develops an informative panel of simple sequence repeat markers to be used for the genotyping of high breeding value C. sativa lines, providing important tools for the genetic characterization, authentication, conservation of biodiversity, genetic improvement and traceability of this increasingly important plant species.

Latitudinal Adaptation and Genetic Insights Into the Origins of Cannabis sativa L.

Molecular evidence reveals for the first time that the low latitude haplogroup (Haplogroup L) is the earliest divergent lineage, implying that Cannabis is probably originated in low latitude region.

Genome-wide development of insertion-deletion (InDel) markers for Cannabis and its uses in genetic structure analysis of Chinese germplasm and sex-linked marker identification

It is believed that this study will facilitate the genetic improvement and germplasm conservation of Cannabis in China, and the sex-linked InDel markers will provide accurate sex identification strategies for Cannabis breeding and production.

Comparative Genetic Structure of Cannabis sativa Including Federally Produced, Wild Collected, and Cultivated Samples

Although the sample size was small, “research grade marijuana” provided for research is genetically distinct from most retail drug-type Cannabis that patients and patrons are consuming.

Production of Feminized Seeds of High CBD Cannabis sativa L. by Manipulation of Sex Expression and Its Application to Breeding

This is the first comprehensive report on the induction of fertile male flowers on female plants from dioecious medical cannabis and it showed that spraying whole plants with STS once is more efficient than the application of STS on shoot tips while spraying plants with 0.01% GA and intensive cutting is ineffective in stimulating the production of male flowers.



Genetic Variation in Hemp and Marijuana (Cannabis sativa L.) According to Amplified Fragment Length Polymorphisms *

Genetic variation was surveyed in three populations of fiber hemp and a potent cultivar of marijuana using AFLP markers, which have practical utility for establishing conspiracy in the cultivation and distribution of marijuana, and identifying geographic sources of seized drugs.

Assessment of genotypic variation among cultivated durum wheat based on EST-SSRS and genomic SSRS

Genotypic variation of 64 durum lines, landraces, and varieties wereinvestigated using three sources of microsatellites (SSRs). 245 primer pairswere used to detect polymorphism in this collection. A

Diversity Analysis in Cannabis sativa Based on Large-Scale Development of Expressed Sequence Tag-Derived Simple Sequence Repeat Markers

The first large-scale development of SSR markers for cannabis was performed to obtain more informative genetic markers, and to assess genetic diversity in cannabis, and these data may serve as a foundation for the development of genetic linkage, quantitative trait loci mapping, and marker-assisted breeding of cannabis.

The draft genome and transcriptome of Cannabis sativa

The availability of the Cannabis sativa genome enables the study of a multifunctional plant that occupies a unique role in human culture and will aid the development of therapeutic marijuana strains with tailored cannabinoid profiles and provide a basis for the breeding of hemp with improved agronomic characteristics.

Use of Embryos Extracted from Individual Cannabis sativa Seeds for Genetic Studies and Forensic Applications

This embryo extraction method enabled the recovery of diploid embryos from individual seeds and an improved protocol for DNA extraction was used, and a clear differentiation between hemp and marijuana varieties was observed.

Propagation through alginate encapsulation of axillary buds of Cannabis sativa L. — an important medicinal plant

This paper reports a simple and efficient method for the in vitro propagation of a screened and selected high yielding drug type variety of Cannabis sativa, MX-1 using synthetic seed technology and the addition of antimicrobial substance — Plant Preservative Mixture had a positive effect on overall plantlet development.

Genetic diversity and population structure in Malus sieversii, a wild progenitor species of domesticated apple

The spatial pattern of genetic assignments among the eight collection sites shows two broadly distributed and two narrowly distributed clusters, which indicate that the southwestern collection sites are more admixed and more diverse than the northern sites.
