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

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

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...

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...

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...
