Complete chloroplast genomes of two mint species (Lamiaceae) from Al-Madinah, Saudi Arabia: phylogenetic and genomic comparative analyses
- BiologyMitochondrial DNA. Part B, Resources
Phylogenetic analysis using a total chloroplast genome DNA sequence of 17 species revealed that M. longifolia sequenced in this study did not form a sister relationship with M.Longifolia from another study, which opens a window for further investigations.
Crop Wild Relatives as Germplasm Resource for Cultivar Improvement in Mint (Mentha L.)
- Biology, MedicineFrontiers in Plant Science
Plant breeders at private and public institutions are using molecular analysis to determine identity and diversity of the USDA mint collection, which can be a source for parental genes for enhancement efforts to produce hybrids, or for breeding new cultivars for agricultural production.
Genetics and Breeding of the Genus Mentha: a Model for Other Polyploid Species with Secondary Constituents
Assimilating almost a century of breeding and biotechnological methods in Mentha, two approaches stand out: γ-irradiation and controlled hybridizations in the field.
