    Abstract: Resistance to leaf rust caused by Puccinia triticina can be improved in wheat cultivars by detection of leaf rust resistance genes that are present in the wheat cultivars. This study was carried out during 2016/17, 2017/18 and 2018/19 growing seasons to study the inheritance and genetic nature of wheat leaf rust resistance in eight Egyptian bread w... Show More

    Abstract: Cassava provides energy sources for millions of people particularly in Africa where it is being planted mostly by rural subsistent farmers. The storage roots are rich in carbohydrates but deficient in vitamin A and consumption of which leads to hidden hunger as a result of insufficient intake of vitamins. The most widely approach in biofortificatio... Show More

    Abstract: Traditionally, genome-wide association studies (GWAS) require maximum numbers of genotyped and phenotyped animals to efficiently detect marker-trait associations. Under financial constraints, alternative solutions should be envisaged such that of performing GWAS with fractioned samples of the population. In the present study, we investigated the po...

    Abstract: Roberts’s syndrome is a genetic disorder characterized by limb and facial abnormalities. Affected individuals also grow slowly before and after birth. This syndrome is associated with ESCO2 (Establishment of Sister Chromatid cohesion N- acetyltransferase 2) gene mutations. SNPs in the coding region (exonal SNPs) that are non-synonymous (nsSNPs), th... Show More
