Transmission of viral RNA and DNA to maize kernels by vascular puncture inoculation
(Elsevier Science, 2001)
Vascular puncture inoculation (VPI) is an effective technique for transmission of maize viruses without using arthropods or other biological vectors. It involves using a jeweler’s engraving tool to push minuten pins through ...
Successful application of FTA® Classic Card technology and use of bacteriophage 29 DNA polymerase for large-scale field sampling and cloning of complete maize streak virus genomes
Leaf samples from 155 maize streak virus (MSV)-infected maize plants were collected from 155 farmers’ fields in 23 districts in Uganda in May/June 2005 by leaf-pressing infected samples onto FTA® Classic Cards. Viral DNA ...
A comparative analysis of conventional and marker-assisted selection methods in breeding maize streak virus resistance in maize.
(Crop Science Society of America, 2009)
Reliable information regarding comparative advantage of marker-assisted selection (MAS) over conventional selection (CS) in breeding for maize streak virus (MSV) resistance in maize (Zea mays L.) is scarcely available. A ...
