Recombination fraction and genetic linkage among key disease resistance genes ( //"P.ult") in common bean.

Afr J Biotechnol 2019 30;18(29). Epub 2019 Sep 30.

Section of Crop and Ecosystem Sciences, Department of Plant Sciences/MS1, University of California, 1 Shields Avenue, Davis, CA 95616-8780, USA.

Anthracnose (), Angular leaf spot () and root rot are important pathogens affecting common bean production in the tropics. A promising strategy to manage these diseases consists of combining several resistance (R) genes into one cultivar. The aim of the study was to determine genetic linkage between gene pairs, /, on bean-chromosome Pv08 and /"P. Read More

Quantitative trait loci (QTL) mapping for intermittent drought tolerance in BRB 191 × SEQ 1027 Andean Intragene cross recombinant inbred line population of common bean ( L.).

Afr J Biotechnol 2019 22;18(21). Epub 2019 May 22.

College of Agricultural and Environmental Science, Department of Agricultural Production, Makerere University, P. O. Box 7062 Kampala, Uganda.

Drought is a major constraint of common bean ( L.) production in Uganda where irrigation for the crop is very uncommon. This study aimed to identify quantitative trait loci (QTLs) underlying drought tolerance in 128 F5 RILs derived from an Andean intra-gene cross between drought-tolerant SEQ 1027 and BRB 191.

prediction and segregation analysis of putative virus defense genes based on SSR markers in sweet potato F1 progenies of cultivars 'New Kawogo' and 'Resisto'.

Afr J Biotechnol 2019 17;18(16). Epub 2019 Apr 17.

Department of Agricultural Production, Makerere University, P. O. Box 7062, Kampala, Uganda.

In sweet potato, an anti-virus defense mechanism termed reversion has been postulated to lead to virus freedom from once infected plants. The objectives of this study were to identify anti-virus defense genes and evaluate their segregation in progenies. Reference genes from different plant species were used to assemble transcript sequences of each sweet potato defense gene . Read More
