Genetic diversity assessment of lowland and upland rice varieties of Mali using microsatellite markers

Article in Press

Rice (scientific name) is an important staple food in the world and knowledge on genetic diversity of lowland and upland local rice varieties allows for better management, conservation and the parsimonious use of these photogenetic resources in a perspective of varietal improvement. In current study, a total of 58 rice varieties including 9 uplands and 49 lowlands, were collected from the Lowland Rice Breeding Program of...

EFFECTS OF DROUGHT STRESS ON STRATEGIC YIELD COMPONENTS OF MAIZE CROP (Zea mays L.)

Article in Press

Water stress is an abiotic condition that significantly lowers maize production. Thirty maize hybrids were planted in a randomized complete block design (RCBD,) replicated three times under water stress and non stress conditions at separate locations (Adunu, longitude 7o91 E, latitude 9o351 N, and Jebba, longitude 4o511 E, latitude 9o71 N). Seven yield components were investigated in this study. The combined data revealed...

POTENTIAL ROLE OF RUMEN BACTERIA IN MODULATING MILK PRODUCTION AND COMPOSITION OF ADMIXED DAIRY COWS

Article in Press

Dairy cattle products are often considered challenging for human health due to their composition measures, yet they provide beneficial nutrients to humans. This study evaluated the potential role of rumen microbes in modifying milk production and composition profile by subjecting four crossbred dairy cows to four different experimental diets over an 80-day period. The four diets were formulated to contain 10%, 20%, 30%,...

A novel homozygous frameshift mutation in UNC13D gene causing Familial Hemophagocytic Lymphohistiocytosis

Article in Press

Familial hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis (FHL) is a rare and life-threatening autosomal recessively inherited disorder that results from the uncontrolled proliferation or over activation of T-lymphocyte and macrophage, over production of inflammatory cytokines and immune dysregulation. Untreated patients have a death rate of around 95%, which can only be reversed through immunochemotherapy and hematopoietic stem cell...

HaeIII Polymorphism of Growth Hormone (GH-1) Gene in some Goat Breeds Reared in Turkey by using PCR-RFLP Method

Article in Press

The purpose of this study is to determine HaeIII polymorphism in the exon 2 and 3 regions of the growth hormone -1 (GH-1) gene which regulates tissue growth and muscle development in 6 different goat breeds reared in Turkey. The HaeIII polymorphism in GH-1 gene (422 bp) was investigated by Restriction Fragment Length Polymorphism (PCR-RFLP) methodology in a total of 303 goats including 52 Hair, 51 Angora, 50 Honaml?, 50...

Genetic variability of Maure zebu in Mali using SSR markers

Article in Press

In Mali, Maure’s zebu breed has good dairy production abilities. Females are often used as a matrix in crosses in peri-urban areas with exotic breeds. Despite the enthusiasm of its productive abilities, the genetic diversity of this breed is not yet sufficiently assessed. In order to contribute to a better understanding of the genetic diversity of this breed, 82 animals were chosen from the farms of four districts in two...

CHALLENGES OF POULTRY GENETICS AND BREED IMPROVEMENT IN ETHIOPIA

Article in Press

The major provision of affordable protein and household cash income in a developing country comes from poultry. In Ethiopia, chicken production is providing a valuable source of food and cash income for most of rural and urban households. Despite of this importance, a set of factors such as low productive chicken breeds, low adaptive ability of high productive chicken, disease, and other breeding and management practices...

AMMI and GGE Biplot Analysis of Multi-Environment Yield Trials of Cowpea (Vigna Unguiculata L.) Genotypes in Ethiopia

Article in Press

Multi-environment test of genotypes for yield performance always subjected to genotype environment interaction, which complicates selection of stable genotypes. Sixteen cowpea genotypes (fourteen promising genotypes and two released varieties) were arranged in 4x4 lattice design with three replicates and evaluated at six environments for grain yield performance in 2016 main cropping season. AMMI combined analysis of...

Mapping of fourteen high-risk human papillomavirus genotypes by molecular detection in sexually active women in the West African sub-region

Article in Press

The aim of this study was to determine the distribution of high-risk human papillomavirus genotypes (HR-HPV) in women from general population of five West African countries.This was a cross-sectional descriptive study, involving 2133 women from nine cities of five West African countries: Benin, Burkina Faso, Côte d'Ivoire, Niger and Togo. Women were screened for precancerous cervical lesions and HR-HPV infection. The...

GENETIC CORRELATIONS AMONG MORPHOLOGICAL AND MINERAL TRAITS IN 15 ACCESSIONS OF GARDEN EGG PLANT (Solanum aethiopicum)

Article in Press

Eggplant (Solanum species) is the most popular and widely cultivated vegetable crop in the tropic and subtropics regions of the globe mainly for its immature fruits and leaves as vegetables. The research study was to access the correlation and to estimate the level or amount of heritability among morphological and mineral traits in S. aethiopicum. Fifteen accessions were grown in a Randomized Complete Block Design with...

CLUSTER ANALYSIS OF GROUNDNUT (Arachis hypogaea L.) CULTIVARS FROM ETHIOPIA FOR MORPHOAGRONOMIC TRAITS

Article in Press

The existence of Genetic variation is essential to plant breeding for increasing yield, wider adaptation, selection of parents for hybridization, desirable quality, and pest and disease resistance. That is why this study was planned to investigate genetic variability based on cluster analysis of groundnut cultivars based on morphoagronomic traits. The crop was sown during 2015 wet season across four locations in Ethiopia...

The role of genetics in control of animal diseases

Article in Press

Veterinary genetics is emerging branch of genetics which has strong potential application in the control and prevention of livestock disease. Unlike the other methods, control of animal disease through genetic means would be cost effective and does not require continuous investment. This is due to the fact that once a desirable genetic resource is identified and or achieved it can be exploited for several generations...

Unravelling genetic make-up of some Musa hybrids and selected Musa accessions using molecular and morphological characterization

Article in Press

Plantains are important staples in sub-Saharan Africa, however, production has been saddled by several constraints including pests and diseases and lack of improved technologies. In regard to genetic study, morphological characterization has identified about 100 local accessions to exist in Ghana. However, limited molecular characterization has been done on plantains. Characterization based on morphologic characteristics...
