DNA profiling of sweetpotato cultivars and clones

This file is about: DNA testing, DNA typing, genetic fingerprinting Majority of DNA is the same for organisms in the same species but there are pieces, regions/patterns that differ within the species Knowing these DNA sequences is the basis of DNA profiling DNA sequencing; determining the nucleotide sequence of a given DNA fragment …

Preliminary results of the heterosis trial in Mozambique with clones derived from Ugandan inter- and intra- gene pool crosses

The main objective of this presentation was: To demonstrate family means for inter genepool crosses 8A x 8B (64 families) and intra-genepool crosses 8A x 8A (n * n-1) / 2 = 24 families) as well as intra-genepool crosses 8B x 8B (n * n-1) / 2 = 24 families) …

Genotype * Environment Interactions for a Diverse Set of Sweetpotato Clones Evaluated across Varying Ecogeographic Conditions in Peru

Sweetpotato [Ipomoea batatas (L.) Lam.] is cultivated across a wide range of agrogeographical conditions. The objectives of this study were to analyze genotype * environment (G * E) interactions for sweetpotato yield (i.e., storage root yield, biomass, harvest index) and nutritional traits [i.e., root dry matter (RDM), starch (STA), and B-carotene (BCR) …
