Identification of quantitative trait loci for dry-matter, starch, and b-carotene content in sweetpotato

Development of orange-fleshed sweetpotatoes (OFSP) is desired for the improvement of the food supply and nutritional status of millions of people in developing countries, particularly in Sub-Saharan Africa. However, sweetpotato [Ipomoea batatas (L.) Lam] breeding is challenging due to its genetic complexity, and marker-assisted breeding tools are needed to facilitate …

Development of a genetic linkage map and identification of homologous linkage groups in sweetpotato using multiple-dose AFLP markers

Sweetpotato genomic research is minimal compared to most other major crops despite its worldwide importance as a food crop. The development of a genetic linkage map in sweetpotato will provide valuable information about the genomic organization of this important species that can be used by breeders to accelerate the introgression …
