Cover for The genetics of modern commercial poultry.

Genetically improved strains of poultry have been a major contribution to the success of the poultry industry, which is a major source of animal protein for the human population in most countries of the world. Improvements in health, nutrition and environmental management have also contributed to...

Cover for Developments in quantitative genetics and genomics relevant for poultry breeding.

Developments in genetics and genomics relevant for poultry breeding are reviewed, focusing on the use of molecular information in breeding programmes and the potential for improving traits affected by social interactions among individuals. QTL mapping studies have resulted in almost 700 QTL for a...

Cover for Population genetic structure in stream insects: what have we learned?

This chapter synthesizes data from 41 studies on 32 species of stream insects in an attempt to answer three questions: First, what is the major dispersal mechanism in aquatic insects, i.e. stream drift or adult flight? If it is stream drift, then genetic variation would be expected to fit the...

Cover for Conservation genetics for insects.

The implications of the following aspects of conservation genetics on insect conservation are discussed: genetic sources of extinction risk; effects of reduced genetic variation and increased homozygosity on population size; sources of variation in effective population size in insects in the field...

Cover for Genetic analysis and QTL mapping for cytosolic glutamine synthetase (GS) and germination traits in maize grain.

To determine (1) the correlation among imbibition time at which 50% of maize seeds germinate (T50), 1000-kernel weight (TKW) and glutamine synthetase [glutamate-ammonia ligase] (GS) activity and (2) the quantitative trait locus (QTL) for the traits, the following investigations were carried out:...

Cover for DNA polymorphisms in accessions of <i xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">Nephelium lappaceum</i> L.

An experiment was conducted to estimate the genetic diversity and to characterize available accessions using molecular markers in N. lappaceum. In addition, genetic diversity within the collection was also studied using isoenzyme polymorphism. A total of 81 scorable bands were generated, of which...

Cover for Molecular analysis of phylogenetic relationships among coconut accessions.

Fourteen coconut accessions (9 tall, 4 dwarf, and 1 intermediate type) were analysed using RAPD markers to establish genetic similarity among some indigenous and exotic coconut accessions maintained in the coconut germplasm centre in Kerala, India. Of the 100 primers tested, only 54 primers...

Cover for Involvement of ABA and GAs in the regulation of dormancy in developing sorghum seeds.

The participation of the hormone abscisic acid (ABA) in the control of dormancy of developing seeds is well documented for a number of species. It has recently been demonstrated that the degree of dormancy of developing sorghum seeds also depends on the extent to which ABA action is counterbalanced ...
