Genetic diversity and population structure of maize inbred lines with varying levels of resistance to striga hermonthica using agronomic trait-based and SNP markers (2020)Striga hermonthica is a serious biotic stress limiting maize production in sub-Saharan Africa. The limited information on the patterns of genetic diversity among maize inbred lines derived from source germplasm with mixed ...
A review of varietal change in roots, tubers and bananas: consumer preferences and other drivers of adoption and implications for breeding (2020)This review of the literature on varietal change in sub‐Saharan Africa looks in detail at adoption of new varieties of bananas in Uganda, cassava in Nigeria, potato in Kenya, sweetpotato in Uganda and yams in Côte d’Ivoire. ...
Genome-wide association analysis reveals new insights into the genetic architecture of defensive, agro-morphological and quality-related traits in cassava (2020)Cassava (Manihot esculenta) is one of the most important starchy root crops in the tropics due to its adaptation to marginal environments. Genetic progress in this clonally propagated crop can be accelerated through the ...
(University of Ghana, 2019-12)The genetic progress in tuber yield and quality attributes of yam is constrained by prolonged breeding cycle, complex ploidy (2n=40, 60, 80), high heterozygousity, complex flowering pattern (dioecois and monoecious flowering ...
