Use of microsatellite markers for the assessment of bambara groundnut breeding system and varietal purity before genome sequencing.

Maximizing the research output from a limited investment is often the major challenge for minor and underutilized crops. However, such crops may be tolerant to biotic and abiotic stresses and are adapted to local, marginal, and low-input environments. Their development through breeding will provide an important resource for future agricultural system… CONTINUE READING
