Use of biplot approach for genetic analysis of yield and related traits in cotton (Gossypiumbarbadense)

Combining ability is an important genetic attributes to cotton breeders in anticipated improvement via hybridization and selection. Seven parents were involved in a half diallel mating design which was analyzed by genotype × environment interaction (GGE) biplot graphical method. General combining ability (GCA) and specific combining ability (SCA) effects were significant for all traits. None of the parents were...

Reliability and comparison of the polymorphism revealed in amaranth by amplified fragment length polymorphisms (AFLPs) and inters simple sequence repeats (ISSRs)

The present study reported the effectiveness of two PCR-based molecular techniques, inters simple sequence repeats (ISSRs) and amplified fragment length polymorphisms (AFLPs), for genetic assessment of amaranth. The polymorphic loci ranged from 110 among A. caudatus to 228 among A. cruentus and 16 among A. tricolor to 56 among A. hypochondriacus for AFLP primer combinations and ISSR primers, respectively. Among the two...
