But some strains of germplasm
carry an excessive freightage of memories--are, to be scientific, more atavistic than other strains; and such a strain is mine.
This is particularly significant in strawberry, where current cultivars are derived from a narrow germplasm
Smith will have primary responsibility for the continued research and development of the Company's dormant germplasm
pipeline recently acquired from DuPont Pioneer which includes more than 60 developmental varieties.
The CCRI Multan director said that Icarda has so far provided 3200 kinds of cotton germplasm
to Pakistan for research in addition to extending training on how to cultivate these lines (germplasm
) for research to evolve virusfree cotton varieties, and their storage.
Plants often have different names and uses in different countries, says Wiersema, who is with the ARS National Germplasm
Resources Laboratory in Beltsville, Maryland.
The information varies from species to species, but might include origin, distribution, diversity, and taxonomy; genomic affinities and speciation; erosion of genetic diversity from the traditional areas; status of germplasm
resources conservation; germplasm
maintenance and evaluation; the use of germplasm
in crop improvement; limitations on germplasm
enhancement through wide crosses; genomic resources; and new sources of genetic diversity.
Matt Kammann, Syngenta's Business Development Manager North America Corn, says, "The Innotech brand provides additional channels for growers to access and experience our Agrisure technology and the elite germplasm
Syngenta has developed.
A major project, supported with a National Priorities Research Programme grant from the Qatar National Research Fund, for genotyping the germplasm
to distinguish between the cultivars (cultivated varieties) using DNA marker, is in its final phase.
The case is based on one of the authors' experience redesigning a database for the United States Department of Agriculture's National Animal Germplasm
Program (NAGP), and it differs from other project-based teaching cases (e.
frugiperda has been studied extensively, and a series of corn germplasm
lines conferring S.
Therefore, there is a greater need to screen out available germplasm
for lower levels of erucic acid and glucosinolates, higher yield potential and oil contents.
Researchers also verified that resistance to the pathogen in this population has polygenic inheritance, is conditioned by both additive and dominance genetic effects, and that genotypes with high resistance were rare in the germplasm
at that time.
