Genetic analysis of twenty two selected genotypes of Jatropha curcas L. (physic nut) from Africa, Asia and America, using SSR and AFLP markers

Twenty two genotypes of J. curcas L. from Africa (Senegal, Burkina Faso, Mali, Congo and Madagascar Island), Asia (Cambodia, China and India) and America (Ecuador, Dominican Republic and Brazil) selected for their vigor and their productivity were analyzed with ten SSR primer pairs and six AFLP primer combinations. The two marker approaches showed their ability to effectively reveal polymorphism among the selected...

Impact of glutathione S-transferase genes polymorphisms on human papillomavirus infection and precancerous lesions in West African women

Genetic polymorphisms of certain classes of glutathione S-transferase (GST), enzyme responsible for the biotransformation of drugs and xenobiotics, have been associated with risk of several cancers such as cervical cancer. The aim of this study is to investigate the impact of glutathione S-transferase M1 and T1 deletion on high-risk human papillomavirus (HR-HPV) infections and on dysplasia. A case-control study was...

Molecular characterization of viruses causing maize lethal necrosis disease in South-Rift region, Kenya

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...

Notice of Retraction: Verification of single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) markers associated with maize (Zea mays. L) streak virus resistance in early generation maize lines

The editors of the International Journal of Genetics and Molecular Biology (IJGMB) are retracting the article, “Verification of single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) markers associated with maize (Zea mays. L) streak virus resistance in early generation maize lines” published in 2020 (Vol.12(1), pp. 36-45, February 2020). This is based on the corresponding author’s (Solomon Shibeshi) declaration of a...
