Stability and adaptability of soybean cultivars in Minas Gerais

Authors: I.O. Soares, A.T. Bruzi, E.V. Zambiazzi, S.R. Guilherme, M.C. Bianchi, K.B. Silva, V. Fronza and C.M. Teixeira

Genotypes x environment (G x E) interaction consists of different behavior of genotypes cultivated in different environments. This interaction occurs due to the performance variation of each genotype in different environments. To reduce the effect of the interaction in soybean crops, some studies have been reported in the lite.. Read More»

Evaluation of castor bean genotypes sown in winter and summer at a low altitude

Authors: G.E.M. Lopes, H.D. Vieira and F.L. Partelli

Current demands for the genetic breeding of castor bean include the adaptation of genotypes to low altitudes to expand the potential areas of cultivation. This study was conducted to evaluate the response of different genotypes of castor bean that were sown in winter and summer at a low altitude. The study was conducted in northwestern Rio de Janeiro Stat.. Read More»

Embryogenesis in the anthers of different ornamental pepper (Capsicum annuum L.) genotypes

Authors: P.A. Barroso, M.M. Rêgo, E.R. Rêgo and W.S. Soares

The aim of this study was to relate flower bud size with microspore developmental stages and the induction of embryos in the anthers of different ornamental pepper (Capsicum annuum L.) genotypes. Flower buds were randomly collected and visually divided into three classes based on both petal and sepal size. The length and diameter of the bud as well as the.. Read More»

Multivariate statistics applied to the reaction of common bean plants to parasitism by Meloidogyne javanica

Authors: L.N.S. Santos, P.D.S. Cabral, G.A.R. Neves, F.R. Alves, M.B. Teixeira1, F.N. Cunha1 N.F. Silva

The availability of common bean cultivars tolerant to Meloidogyne javanica is limited in Brazil. Thus, the present study aimed to evaluate the reactions of 33 common bean genotypes (23 landrace, 8 commercial, 1 susceptible standard and 1 resistant standard) to M. javanica, employing multivariate statistics to discriminate the ..

Diallel cross analysis of plesiomorphic traits in Triticum aestivum L. genotypes

Authors: M. Shehzad, S.B. Hussain, M.K. Qureshi, M. Akbar, M. Javed1, H.M. Imran and S.A. Manzoor

We conducted a 5 x 5 complete diallel cross experiment in bread wheat (Triticum aestivum) with the genotypes 6309, Chkwal-50, Dhrabi, Bhkhar-02, and FS-08. Our objective was to evaluate the type of gene action and the general and specific combining abilities required for various morphological traits in wheat. The results of analysis of variance revealed h.. Read More»

Genetic relationships in a germplasm collection of Camellia japonica and Camellia oleifera using SSR analysis

Authors: Y. Zhao, C.J. Ruan, G.J. Ding and S. Mopper

Camellia japonica produces different color and bigger flowers, widely being used for gardening green in southern China. However, cultivars were introduced from different regions, but their origin and pedigree information is either not available poorly documented, causing problems in authentication. Many low-yield trees in Came.. Read More»

Genome-wide association analysis of body conformation traits in Mexican Holstein cattle using a mix of sampled and imputed SNP genotypes

Authors: M.E. González, V.M. González, M.F. Montaño, G.E. Medina,P. Mahadevan, C. Villa and R. Villa

In arid and semi-arid zones, animal health and production are closely correlated with body conformation traits. These selected traits, in turn, allow livestock to adapt unfavorable soil and environmental conditions. The primary objective of this study was to perform a genome-wide association analysis for a set of sampled and i.. Read More»

Low-level sequence variation in Toxoplasma gondii calcium-dependent protein kinases among different genotypes

Authors: J.L. Wang, N.Z. Zhang, S.Y. Huang, Y. Xu1,2, R.A. Wang and X.Q. Zhu

The causative agent of toxoplasmosis, Toxoplasma gondii, can infect virtually all nucleated cell types of warm-blooded animals. In this study, we examined the sequence variation in calciumdependent protein kinase 2 (CDPK2) genes among 13 T. gondii strains from different hosts and geographical locations. The results showed that the lengths of the complete .. Read More»

Prevalence and genotype distribution of human papillomavirus in women in the Henan Province

Authors: Y.-F. Zhi, X.-X. Cha, X.-F. Li, C. Qiu and S.-H. Rong

We studied human papillomavirus (HPV) prevalence and genotype distribution among women in the Henan Province to provide epidemiological data as a means of preventing cervical cancer and developing a vaccine. A total of 14,873 samples were genotyped by using polymerase chain reaction reverse dot-blot. The overall HPVpositive rate in the sample was 23.98% (.. Read More»
