An assessment of the application of DNA markers to studies of genetic diversity and marker assisted selection in sugarcane : SRDC final project
The project objectives were as follows: Adapt and assess various molecular marker technologies including RFLPs, RAPDs, AFLPs and SSR-PCRs for use in sugarcane; assess levels of diversity in t he Meringa breeding cane ...
Introgression of new genes from Saccharum officinarum
Modern sugarcane cultivars are derived from two main ancestral species: Saccharum officinarum, which is the main source of high sucrose levels, and S. spontaneum. Only a small number of clones of either species have ever ...
Perfect markers for sugarcane mapping
Sugarcane is a complex aneuploid, polyploid, interspecific hybrid. Most breeding traits are complex and molecular markers associated with these traits are a tool that may assist breeders to more efficiently identify sugarcane ...
Assessment of bulk segregant analysis and marker- assisted selection for economically important traits in sugarcane : SRDC final report BS138
The main aim of this project was to assess the feasibility of bulk segregant analysis (BSA) and marker-assisted selection for important traits in sugarcane. The target trait for this feasibility study was rust resistance. ...
Map-based chromosome and trait tagging in sugarcane using cytological and RFLP markers
Sugarcane is a complex aneuploid, polyploid, interspecific hybrid. At the time that this project began, molecular mapping in sugarcane was in its infancy and was only being attempted in interspecific crosses or within the ...
