Genetic divergence among accessions of melon from traditional agriculture of the Brazilian Northeast

F. A. S. Aragão, J. Filho, T., Nunes, G. H. S., Queiróz, M. A., Bordallo, P. N., Buso, G. S. C., Ferreira, M. A., Costa, Z. P., and F. Neto, B., Genetic divergence among accessions of melon from traditional agriculture of the Brazilian Northeast, vol. 12, pp. 6356-6371, 2013.

The genetic divergence of 38 melon accessions from traditional agriculture of the Brazilian Northeast and three commercial hybrids were evaluated using fruit descriptors and microsatellite markers. The melon germplasm belongs to the botanic varieties cantalupensis (19), momordica (7), conomon (4), and inodorus (3), and to eight genotypes that were identified only at the species level.

Comparative sodium dodecyl sulfate-polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis and restricted fragment length polymorphism among fenugreek accessions

E. A. Haliem and Al-Huqail, A. A., Comparative sodium dodecyl sulfate-polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis and restricted fragment length polymorphism among fenugreek accessions, vol. 12, pp. 6284-6298, 2013.

Protein and DNA polymorphismswere surveyed among seven accessions of wild fenugreek (Trigonellafoenum-graecum L.) to estimate their genetic diversity and relationships. Samples were obtained from diverse ecogeographical areas in Saudi Arabia and Yemen. Sodium dodecyl sulfate-polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis (SDS-PAGE) analysis of seed storage protein showed genetic variations among fenugreek germplasms, both quantitatively and qualitatively, generating a total of 168 polypeptide bands with different molecular weights ranging from 4.5 to 300 kDa.

Diversity of pea (Pisum sativum) accessions based on morphological data for sustainable field pea breeding in Argentina

I. Gatti, Espósito, M. A., Almirón, P., Cravero, V. P., and Cointry, E. L., Diversity of pea (Pisum sativum) accessions based on morphological data for sustainable field pea breeding in Argentina, vol. 10, pp. 3403-3410, 2011.

We characterized 13 accessions of dry peas of different origins from various growing regions in Argentina, based on three replications of 20 plants cultivated in 2009 and 2010 in a greenhouse, with the objective of selecting those with favorable characteristics for use in breeding programs.
