Cover for Capturing wild relative and landrace diversity for crop improvement using a new selection tool to exploit genetic resources in durum wheat (<i xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">Triticum durum</i> Desf.).

This chapter deals with the application of the single seed descent (SSD) method, originally developed to facilitate the selection of recombinant lines, in durum wheat (T. durum) to obtain a set of genotypes potentially retaining most of the variation of this species. A total of 452 accessions,...

Cover for Insights into the molecular detection of <i xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">Giardia duodenalis</i>: implications for epidemiology.

Giardia duodenalis is a widespread parasite of mammalian species, including humans. Due to its invariant morphology, investigation of aspects such as host specificity and transmission patterns requires a direct genetic characterization of cysts/trophozoites from host samples. A number of molecular...
