Volume 6, Issue 2 , December 2018, , Pages 1-9

  Assessment of genetic diversity and individual relationships in rice (Oryza sativa) germplasm collections seems to be necessary for future rice breeding program. In order to understand genetic relationships of 30 rice genotypes, nine morphological traits, seven physicochemical properties and twelve RAPD ...  Read More

Volume 6, Issue 2 , December 2018, , Pages 19-26

  The present research aims to study the association and allelic diversity of linked microsatellite markers to grain quality QTLs of 84 exotic rice genotypes. To this end, 9 microsatellite markers (RM540, RM539, RM587, RM527, RM216, RM467, RM3188, RM246, RM5461) were used in which a total of 61 alleles ...  Read More

  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

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

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
