Inheritance of ß-carotene in cassava (Manihot esculenta crantza)

A study on the inheritance pattern of beta-carotene in cassava was carried out in the International Institute of Tropical Agriculture (IITA), Ibadan, Nigeria, using four parental lines of cassava, namely two yellow flesh and two white flesh colour genotypes. Crosses of yellow x white and white x yellow were made. The resulting progenies were screened and placed into distinct phenotypic classes and the data obtained were...

Rapid targeting and isolation of the β-like globin gene cluster fragment from AA, AS and SS genotypes using BamHI restriction enzyme

  The β-globin gene cluster contains the β-globin gene on which the substitution of the 17thnucleotide gives rise to sickle cell anemia and other β-globin gene variants with varying severity. Recent therapy measures focus on understanding the structure and mechanism of expression of the β-globin gene. In this study, we attempted to isolate a gene fragment containing the complete set of the...
