Effectiveness of molecular markers for improving grain quality in Iranian rice

zhila zahedi; Alireza Nabipour; Asa Ebrahimi

Volume 7, Issue 1 , June 2019, , Pages 22-30


  Grain and cooking qualities in rice are measured by several physical and chemical traits, each of them controlled by several genes. Molecular markers have become fast and reliable tools for screening genotypes for grain quality. However, As different populations may carrydifferent genes, the efficacy ...  Read More

Volume 4, Issue 1 , June 2016, , Pages 10-16


  Urtica dioica is an important medicinal plant which is widely distributed in Mazandaran province (North of Iran). In this study for the first time Amplified Fragment Length Polymorphism (AFLP) and Inter-simple Sequence Repeat (ISSR) markers were used for detection of genetic polymorphism in Mazandaran ...  Read More

Hajar Abedinpour; Nad Ali Babaeian Jelodar; Gholam Ali Ranjbar; Behrouz Golein

Volume 3, Issue 1 , June 2015, , Pages 35-49


  Having knowledge about genetic relationships among accessions is necessary for developing breeding strategies to produce improved cultivars. In present study, genetic diversity and inter-relationship among 29 genotypes of citrus were comparatively analyzed using morphological and RAPD markers. Significant ...  Read More

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

Molecular diversity within and between Ajowan (Carum copticum L.) populations based on inter simple sequence repeat (ISSR) markers

Mahdieh Modareskia; Reza Darvishzadeh; Abbas Hassani; Maryam Kholghi

Volume 1, Issue 1 , December 2012, , Pages 51-62


  Study of genetic relationships is a prerequisite for plant breeding activities as well as for conservation of genetic resources. In the present study, genetic diversity among and within 15 Iranian native Ajowan(Carum copticum L.) populations were determined using inter simple sequence repeat (ISSR) markers. ...  Read More
