Molecular techniques : Prospects in crop enhancement , production , sustainance and improvement in a developing economy
Today there is a steady pace of advancements in efficacy, productivity and stability in plant breeding the World over. However, new approaches and knowledge are needed to permit feasible
From genetics to genomics in plants and animals
TLDR
The quick invention and practical application of new high-throughput technologies for studying of the genomic variation, evolution, translation of proteins and metabolite determination altogether put in an open and communicative environment of information technologies provide a new holistic platform for better research and more knowledge for practicalApplication of selection decisions.
An ex ante economic impact analysis of developing low cost technologies for pyramiding useful genes from wild relatives into elite progenitors of cassava
This study conducts an ex-ante economic impact evaluation of developing low cost technologies for pyramiding useful genes from wild relatives into elite progenitors of cassava in Nigeria, Ghana and
Identification of QTLs for Resistance to Fusarium Head Blight Using a Doubled Haploid Population Derived from Southeastern United States Soft Red Winter Wheat Varieties AGS 2060 and AGS 2035
TLDR
A QTL mapping study found QTLs on chromosomes 2A and 7A could be valuable sources of resistance to both DON and FDK over several environments and were likely the best candidates for use in marker-assisted selection.
A Review of Challenges to Genetic Improvement of Indigenous Livestock for Improved Food Production in Nigeria
TLDR
The potential of molecular assisted selection as a tool for genetic improvement of indigenous livestock is elucidated, constraints and challenges in MAS implementation are identified and solutions to increasing MAS feasibility are proposed in pursuit of improved food security and sustainability in Nigeria.
Copy number variation (CNV) in the IGF1R gene across four cattle breeds and its association with economic traits
TLDR
Bioinformatics predictions show that the CNV region is highly similar to the human genome, and there are a large number of transcription factors, DNase I hypersensitive sites, and high levels of histone acetylation, suggesting that this region may play a role in transcriptional regulation.

Using SSR markers from Prunus genus for wild cherry genotyping
TLDR
This microsatellite set designed for P.runus genus has showed its potential for genotyping plus trees from wild cherry for wood production and has been assessed for transferability to other species and/or provenances different for what they were designed.

The use of reproductive and molecular biotechnology in Animal Genetic Resources management - a global overview 1
TLDR
There is a big gap in biotechnology use between developed and developing countries, with artificial insemination being the technology most widely applied in developing countries.
Molecular breeding of tropical trees.
Commercial application of marker- and gene-assisted selection in livestock: strategies and lessons.
TLDR
Although molecular genetic information has been used in industry programs for several decades and is growing, the extent of use has not lived up to initial expectations and the current attitude toward marker-assisted selection is therefore one of cautious optimism.
Molecular mapping and characterization of traits controlling fiber quality in cotton
TLDR
Molecular markers linked to fiber quality QTLs would be most effective in marker-assisted selection (MAS) of these recessive alleles in cotton breeding programs.
Molecular mapping of QTLs for Fusarium head blight resistance in spring wheat. I. Resistance to fungal spread (Type II resistance)
TLDR
Results indicate that FHB resistance is under control of a few major QTLs operating together with unknown numbers of minor genes, which should accelerate the development of resistant and agronomically improved wheat cultivars.
QTL analysis of genotype × environment interactions affecting cotton fiber quality
TLDR
The genetic control of cotton fiber quality was markedly affected both by general differences between growing seasons and by specific differences in water management regimes, suggesting that improvement of fiber quality under water stress may be even more complicated than improvement of this already complex trait under well-watered conditions.
DNA markers for Fusarium head blight resistance QTLs in two wheat populations
TLDR
DNA markers for FHB resistance QTLs have been identified and may be used to speed the introgression of resistance genes into adapted germplasm and should be useful in marker-assisted selection.
RFLP mapping of QTL for fusarium head blight resistance in wheat
TLDR
Results indicate that resistance to FHB is inherited in a quantitative manner and that marker-assisted selection may aid the development of FHB-resistant cultivars.
Polyploid formation created unique avenues for response to selection in Gossypium (cotton).
TLDR
The findings impel molecular dissection of the roles of divergent subgenomes in quantitative inheritance in many other polyploids and further exploration of both "synthetic" polyploid and exotic diploid genotypes for agriculturally useful variation.
