Component traits of plant water use are modulated by vapour pressure deficit in pearl millet (Pennisetum glaucum (L.) R.Br.)

Abstract : Traits influencing plant water use eventually define the fitness of genotypes for specific rainfall environments. Weassessed the response of several water use traits to vapour (...)

A physical map of important QTLs, functional markers and genes available for sesame breeding programs

Abstract : Sesame is one of the oldest oilseed crops grown mainly in Africa and Asia. Although genetic and genomic studies on sesame have started late, the past 5 years have witnessed (...)

Dynamic transcriptome landscape of sesame (Sesamum indicum L.) under progressive drought and after rewatering

Abstract Drought is one of the most important abiotic stresses that impair sesame (Sesamum indicum L.) productivity mainly when it occurs at flowering stage. However up to now, very few studies (...)

Insight into the AP2/ERF transcription factor superfamily in sesame and expression profiling of DREB subfamily under drought stress

Abstract Background : Sesame is an important oilseed crop mainly grown in inclement areas with high temperatures and frequent drought. Thus, drought constitutes one of the major constraints of (...)

Difference in germination rate of Baobab (Adansonia digitata L.) provenances contrasting in their seed morphometrics when pretreated with concentrated sulfuric acid

Baobab (Adansonia digitata L.) is considered an under-utilized species even though it is an economically useful tree often used daily in the diet of rural communities in West Africa. Baobab (...)

Selection for Postflowering Drought Resistance in Short- and Medium- duration Cowpeas Using Stress Tolerance Indices

Abstract Available drought-tolerant cowpeas [Vigna unguiculata (L.) Walp.] are few, and identification of additional genotypes with even greater tolerance to drought would enable breeders to (...)

Enabling Tools for Modern Breeding of Cowpea for Biotic Stress Resistance

Abstract This chapter summarizes recent advances in genomic resources, technologies, breeding platforms, and molecular markers that are being used to expedite delivery of cowpea cultivars with (...)

Association studies and legume synteny reveal haplotypes determining seed size in Vigna unguiculata

Abstract Highly specific seed market classes for cowpea and other grain legumes exist because grain is most commonly cooked and consumed whole. Size, shape, color, and texture are critical (...)

Evaluation of Selected Sorghum Lines and Hybrids for Resistance to Grain Mold and Long Smut Fungi in Senegal, West Africa

Abstract Grain mold in sorghum [Sorghum bicolor (L.) Moench] is a major problem worldwide. Damage caused by this fungal disease complex includes a reduction in yield (loss of seed mass), grain (...)

Gene Pools and the Genetic Architecture of Domesticated Cowpea

Abstract Cowpea [Vigna unguiculata (L.) Walp.] is a major tropical legume crop grown in warm to hot areas throughout the world and especially important to the people of sub-Saharan Africa (...)
