The Use of Nicotiana Species in Tobacco Improvement
TLDR
This review examines how and to what extent natural germplasm resources have been utilized in hybridization and introgression experiments over the past century, and focuses on individual Nicotiana species involved in interspecific hybrids with cultivated tobacco produced by sexual and asexual methods.
Transfer of tolerance to different Potato virus Y (PVY) isolates from Nicotiana africana Merxm. to Nicotiana tabacum L.
TLDR
These stable breeding lines carrying N. africana-derived tolerance factors to different strains and isolates of PVY are the source of a very valuable germplasm to be used for breeding.
Estimating agronomic traits of transgenic tobacco lines
TLDR
Evaluation of the chosen farm traits of the transgenic tobacco lines was performed by comparing them with their nontransgenic equivalents and genetic modification did not cause any changes in the course of meiosis and pollen viability.
Sources of resistance to viruses in the Potyviridae.
TLDR
Resistance to 56 viruses in the family Potyviridae in 334 plant species was tabulated and the role of conventional breeding and biotechnology in transferring genes from one species to another is discussed.
