Mapping QTLs associated with chloride accumulation in leaves of oriental tobacco (Nicotiana tabacum L.) using F2:3 population of Basma Seres 31 × SPT 406 cross

Faramarz Hoshyardel; Reza Darvishzadeh; Hamid Hatami Maleki; Marjan Jannatdoust

Volume 7, Issue 2 , December 2021, , Pages 12-18

  Chloride is considered as the most important micronutrient in tobacco production. But excessive amounts of chloride accumulation in leaves of tobacco have many adverse effects on the tobacco quality, such as burning capacity. Identification of quantitative trait loci (QTL) involved in chloride accumulation ...  Read More

Plant breeding for abiotic & biotic stresses
The effects of sodium chloride stress on some biochemical characteristics and antioxidative enzymes activities in two sunflower (Helianthus annuus L.) genotypes

Fariba Morsali Aghajari; Reza Darvishzadeh; Mitra Razi

Volume 8, Issue 2 , December 2020, , Pages 10-20

  Salinity is one of the most important non-biological stresses that affect plant growth and development. Effect of different levels of NaCl (0, 2, 4, 6 and 8 dS/m) were investigated on enzymatic and non-enzymatic activities in C64 and C68 oilseed sunflower genotypes at two times; 3 and 12 days after salinity ...  Read More

Germplasm genetic diversity & plant breeding
Genetic analysis of castor (Ricinus communis L.) using ISSR markers

Farnaz Goodarzi; Reza Darvishzadeh; Abbas Hassani

Volume 3, Issue 1 , June 2015, , Pages 18-34

  Castor (Ricinus communis L.) is one of the most ancient medicinal oil crops in the world. It has been vastly distributed in different parts of Iran. In the present study, the inter simple sequence repeat (ISSR) markers were used to evaluate the molecular genetic diversity among and within 12 castor accessions ...  Read More

Molecular markers & plant breeding
Identification of QTLs for grain yield and some agro-morphological traits in sunflower (Helianthus annuus L.) using SSR and SNP markers

Nader Eyvaznejad; Reza Darvishzadeh

Volume 2, Issue 2 , December 2014, , Pages 68-87

  Many agriculturally important traits are complex, affected by many genes and the environment. Quantitative trait loci (QTL) mapping is a key tool for studying the genetic structure of complex traits in plants. In the present study QTLs associated with yield and agronomical traits such as leaf number, ...  Read More
