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

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...
