Molecular Characterization of Viruses Causing Maize Lethal Necrosis Disease in South-Rift region, Kenya

Article in Press

The first report of Maize lethal necrosis (MLN) disease in Africa was in Bomet, Kenya, nine years ago. It has since spread in East and Central African (ECA) countries, causing massive yield losses. Currently, 90% of the preferred commercial maize germplasm grown by farmers in Kenya is susceptible to MLN disease. As such, the disease has continued to pose a serious challenge to food security in the ECA region. This study...

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...

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...



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...
