Prevalence and Genetic diversity of Plasmodium falciparum in patients attending regional health center in Daloa, Côte d'Ivoire

Malaria is a parasitic disease defined as a major problem of public health in Côte d'Ivoire. One of the constraints of the control of this disease might be the genetic diversity of the main pathogen, Plasmodium falciparum, that could lead to drug resistance with regard to drug pressure. This study aimed to evaluate the infection rate of malaria and the genetic diversity of Plasmodium falciparum in individuals at the...

Inheritance of maize (Zea mays L.) leaf traits

The maize leaf plays an important role in the synthesis of organic compounds. It hosts the interception of light energy and conversion to organic energy and, the capture and assimilation of carbon dioxide in order to produce food. In this study, we explore the heritability of the maize leaf length, leaf width, and the number of leaves of two maize genotypes, JNE and BLC. The estimates of heritability varied from 0.2 to...

Verification of Single Nucleotide Polymorphism (SNP) Markers Associated with Maize (Zea mays. L) Streak Virus Resistance in Early Generation Maize Lines

Maize streak virus (MSV) is devastating viral diseases on maize in sub-Saharan Africa. The disease may cause up to 100% yield loss in susceptible crops. The use of molecular markers can facilitate the development of varieties resistant to the virus. The objective of this study was to assess the usefulness of Single Nucleotide Polymorphism (SNP) markers linked to MSV resistance in selecting for resistance at early...

Distribution of Groundnut rosette disease and sequence diversity of Groundnut rosette virus associated satellite RNA (Sat-RNA) in western Kenya

Production of groundnuts (Arachis hypogaea L.) in western Kenya is mainly constrained by Groundnut Rosette Disease (GRD) which cause up to 100% yield loss. This disease express different symptoms as a result of variations in the Groundnut rosette virus (GRV) associated satellite-ribonucleic acid (GRV Sat-RNA). Over the past 20 years no work had been done to document the status of the disease in Kenya. Additionally, no...

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

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

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...
