Plant breeders mainly rely on phenotypic selection for the improvement of plant varieties. However, with the advent of molecular markers in the early 1980s, it became possible to select desirable traits more directly. Molecular markers, primarily DNA markers, are sections of the genome of the...

Metabolomics is a systems biology discipline wherein abundances of endogenous metabolites from biological samples are identified and quantitatively measured across a large range of metabolites and/or a large number of samples. Since all developmental, physiological and 'response to the environment' ...

There have been massive losses of avian genetic material over the past several decades, partly because of a belief that cryoconservation techniques used for mammals do not work for birds. For several avian species, cryopreservation of semen may not be sufficiently efficient to use in commercial...

Jatropha curcas L., a drought tolerant, monoecious perennial shrub, has gained attention in the tropics and sub-tropics during the past decade as a potential biodiesel crop. Adequate genetic diversity for key agronomic traits is of fundamental importance in crop improvement programmes particularly...

The cryopreservation of preimplantation embryos of domestic mammalian livestock species has become a routine practice in animal production. Embryo cryopreservation is an integral part of genetic improvement programmes utilizing embryo transfer and also is vital to germplasm preservation programmes. ...

Trichomes are epidermal hairs that can occur on nearly all plant surfaces. Structures are diverse among higher plants, but generally conserved within taxa. Consequently, trichomes have served as taxonomic characters. Because of their size and location, trichomes often mediate interactions between...
