Genetic studies and technological edge on maize are increasingly advancing since the turn of the decade. This has come as a result of the increasing threat of pests and diseases in maize producing regions of the world. This book provides a new metric to the fungal disease, Phaeosphaeria leaf spot that has seen increased incidence and severity of epidemics in these growing areas. The author explores the inheritance of the disease and the combining ability of other secondary traits like early maturity in germplasm adaptable to Southern Africa. Thus the book confirms that phaeosphaeria leaf is a highly heritable disease combined with additive gene action and earliness is a moderately heritable trait. Hence, scientists, maize breeding houses and students will be able to fix resistance in their line breeding programs using novel methodologies and technologies that include marker assisted selection and recurrent selection, to generate resistant commercial hybrids. Finally, the general and specific combining abilities of phaeosphaeria leaf spot and other secondary maize traits are further discussed.

Maize is the third most important crop in the world agricultural economy after wheat and rice with an area of 168.26 million hectares with a production of 854.59 million tonnes with average productivity of 5120 kg / ha. Weed management in maize is carried out by manual, mechanical and chemical methods, among which chemical method is the most economical and effective tool to suppress weeds in order to get healthy crop stand and good yield. Advancement in biotechnological research enables genetic engineering to enhance production and minimize crop yield losses through development of crops that are tolerant to insects and herbicides. Genetically modified crops are the most rapidly adopted technology in agricultural history due to the social and economic benefits. Major yield reducing factors for maize cultivation are weeds and insects. Transgenic corn hybrids with stacked event (TC1507 X NK603) were developed for preventing yield losses of corn and improve the productivity. The stacked product having both insect protection and herbicide tolerant traits will provide protection to the crop against target pests and also provide effective weed management system to farmers.

Master's Thesis from the year 2007 in the subject Business economics - Miscellaneous, grade: A, , course: Agric Economics, language: English, abstract: This study examined the dynamism of price movement between markets and its implication on pricing efficiency in maize markets. Primary data were collected using interview guides. A total of 240 respondents were selected using stratified random sampling technique in 6 rural and 6 urban markets in Ogun State. Weekly retail prices of yellow and white maize for five years (January 1999-December 2003) were analysed using the Bivariate Cointegration test and the Granger causality test to detect the presence and level of price integration. In Ogun State, domestic production of maize increased by 9 percent a year between 1990 - 2001. Although the growth in maize production may be attributed to cultivating more crop area and/or the adoption of improved open pollinated and hybrid maize varieties which provide the major stimulus for increased yield on the average. Annual growth rate of maize yields was 9.08 percent during 1990 - 2001. Most of the growth came from yellow maize, which increased at 8.92 percent annually, compared with 3.57 percent for white maize. In comparison with other states in South-West however, the Ogun state average yield of 1.41 metric tons per hectare is the lowest.i. How integrated are the maize markets in the study area?ii.

Estimates of gene effects based on analysis of generation mean were obtained for nine traits in three crosses in castor (Ricinus communis L.): SKP-84 x DCS-94, VP-1 x DCS-94 and GEETA x GC-3. The study material includes P1, P2, F1, F2, BC1 and BC2 generations of these crosses.The individual scaling test and joint scaling test indicated that an additive-dominance model was adequate in three traits viz., length of main raceme, number of effective branches per plant and seed index in the cross VP-1 x DCS-94. The analysis showed the presence of additive, dominance and epistasis gene effects for the traits.However, to exploit both additive and non-additive gene action reciprocal recurrent or biparental mating procedure may be adopted for improvement of traits. Duplicate epistasis played a greater role than complementary epistasis. Key words:- Castor, Gene action, Generation mean, Polygenic traits, Scaling test

Maize is the main staple crop in East African mountains but its yield is affected by biotic and abiotic factors. Lepidopteran pests such as, Chilo partellus (Crambidae) and Busseola fusca (Noctuidae) reduced maize yield while soil elements increase the yield. In addition to enhancing maize yields, some soil element such as silicon (Si) aid plants in overcoming abiotic and biotic stresses. Hence, any factor that induces Si deficiency in soil might be detrimental to the plant growth and its resistance to insect pests and diseases. Understanding how the projected temperature increase will affect Si levels in soil and maize is crucial in promoting maize production in different agro-ecosystems in the face of climate change. This study evaluated the Si levels in both soil and maize plants cultivated along three altitudinal gradients of East African mountains (Machakos, Taita and Kilimanjaro) characterized by graded changes in climatic conditions. The study also linked the Si level in maize plants to lepidopteran pests' distribution.

The book entitled ‘Bt and Non-Bt cotton hybrids: Nitrogen fertilizer effects.’ Deals with the commercial importance of Cotton hybrids ( Gossypium spp.) and how the Nitrogen fertilizer effects the growth and yield of cotton varieties. Field testing of these transgenic cottons proved that Bt cotton hybrids are not only more productive but also profitable over traditional non-Bt cottons. Nitrogen is a major macro nutrient, It is an essential part of amino acids and nucleic acids which are building blocks of protein and thus are essential to all life on Earth. Two Bt hybrids studied (RCH 134 and RCH 317) were physiologically superior to non-Bt hybrid ‘LHH 144’ and the inbuilt bollworm resistance of Bt hybrids was the cause for this superiority. Performance of cotton was markedly improved by N fertilization up to 180 kg N/ha in terms of growth and yield attributes, yield and nutrient uptake. Bt hybrids can prove more productive under low or no N fertilization and thus are suitable for cultivation in soils with low available Nitrogen.

Maize is one of the most important cereal crops in the World's agricultural economy both as food for humans and feed for animals and poultry. Maize is known as "Queen of Cereals" due to its higher yield potential compared to other cereals. In India it is the third most important food crop after rice and wheat. The demand for maize is increasing day by day in India, owing to the increased demand for poultry and cattle feed and for the same reason it is also emerging as an important cereal crop in India. In crop plants, the physiological basis of dry matter production is dependent on the source-sink concept, where the source is the potential capacity for photosynthesis and the sink is the potential capacity to utilize the photosynthetic products. Hence, for improving attainable crop yields the knowledge of yield forming physiological processes such as source-sink relationships is required. Many studies have been conducted on source-sink relationship in different crops including maize to understand this phenomenon towards maneuvering such crops. Since, maize being the sink limiting crop, it is important to study the source-sink relationship to improve the sink capacity and maize yield

Doctoral Thesis / Dissertation from the year 2010 in the subject Biology - Micro- and Molecular Biology, grade: A, , course: Molecular Plant-microbe interaction - Agriculture/Rice Blast Disease/pathogenic shift/DNA double strand break repair, language: English, abstract: The ortholog of the Saccharomyces cerevisiae recombinational repair gene RAD51, Rhm51 was cloned from the genome of rice blast fungus Magnaporthe oryzae in order to clarify its role in the variability and pathogenicity. Rhm51 is a single copy gene, and is constitutively expressed at low levels during the cell cycle and at higher levels when the pathogen is grown in media supplemented with DNA damaging agents. We disrupted Rhm51 in two different strains of M. oryzae and both mutants showed reduced growth with conidia and colonies being highly sensitive to DNA double strand break-inducing agents. In addition, they lost the ability to undergo homologous recombination in adeA gene targeting. Mutants showed reduction in conidiation compared to the wild-type strains. Although mutants infected compatible rice cultivars, they produced significantly smaller and fewer lesions compared to wild-type strains and this might be due to the reduction in the amount of appressoria formed. DNA double-strand breaks (DSBs) quantified by the comet assay showed that loss of Rhm51 resulted in the accumulation of DSBs in mutant.

In 1935 geneticist Nikolai Timoféeff-Ressovsky, radiation physicist Karl G. Zimmer, and quantum physicist Max Delbrück published “On the Nature of Gene Mutation and Gene Structure,” known subsequently as the “Three-Man Paper.” This seminal paper advanced work on the physical exploration of the structure of the gene through radiation physics and suggested ways in which physics could reveal definite information about gene structure, mutation, and action. Representing a new level of collaboration between physics and biology, it played an important role in the birth of the new field of molecular biology. The paper’s results were popularized for a wide audience in the What is Life? lectures of physicist Erwin Schrödinger in 1944. Despite its historical impact on the biological sciences, the paper has remained largely inaccessible because it was only published in a short-lived German periodical. Creating a Physical Biology makes the Three Man Paper available in English for the first time. Brandon Fogel’s translation is accompanied by an introductory essay by Fogel and Phillip Sloan and a set of essays by leading historians and philosophers of biology that explore the context, contents, and subsequent influence of the paper, as well as its importance for the wider philosophical analysis of biological reductionism.Издательство - The University of Chicago Press

The high population pressure in central Kenya has lead to continuous cultivation with minimal application of nutrient, resulting in nutrient depletion. A study was conducted to determine the effect of 'Push-pull' (intercropping maize with Desmodium and Napier grass) strategy management and nitrogen application on maize grain yield and soil fertility on smallholder farmer's fields in three districts of central Kenya highlands. The experiment design was a split plot design with two factors ('Push-pull' vs monoculture and manure (5 t/ha) only vs manure and fertilizer (40 kg/ha) replicated four times.I found an increase in maize yield in 'Push-pull' fields compared with monocultures with only manure added (5t/ha) and the yield increased even more with modest application of fertilizer (40KgN/ha) combined with manure (5t/ha).There was strong significant difference (p<0.001) on maize grain yield between 'Push-pull' (5.52t/ha) and monoculture (1.93t/ha) cropping systems in the three districts of central Kenya.From management perspective, the different fertilization regimes had strongest positive effect on maize yield in well managed 'Push-pull' cropping systems.

This book covers study on ‘Response of rice hybrids to planting dates during wet season’. The salient findings are July 5 and July 20 planted crops required 1.4 and 4.6 days more towards maturity, respectively than August 5 planted crop. A linear reduction in GDD and PTU; while the reverse in HTU and summation of BSH for the entire life period was observed with progressive delay in sowing. In comparison with two July plantings, August 5 planted crop produced greater number of tillers during active tillering period, better foliage growth (LAI) resulting higher accumulation of dry matter (DM) throughout the crop growth. All four rice hybrids had higher (>100 cm) plant height at harvest over the HYV check in either of the planting dates. The grain yield increased significantly in August 5 planting over transplanting done on July 5 and July 20, as there was significant improvement in production of panicles m-2 and 1000 grain weight. All four rice hybrids produced longer panicles and > 150 filled grains panicle-1. Except brown rice recovery, dates of planting had no significant effect on kernel length, breadth, L/B ratio, total carbohydrate, protein, KLAC, ER and volume expansion.

Potassium fertilizers have been found to increase yields of food crops in soils of Kenya and the world. The availability of potassium in maize and sugarcane growing soils in Kenya is unknown and this could be causing the low crop yields. It is therefore necessary to establish the availability of soil potassium to determine its efficiency for maize and sugarcane needs with reference to regions in Kenya. The necessity of the work is to ensure optimum nutrient availability and low cost of nutrient application with high yield of maize and sugarcane. The study of the availability of potassium reserves in these areas will enable farmers to determine whether or not to apply fertilizer. The book is divided into five chapters. This study is useful to farmers who want to practice large scale production of maize and sugarcane. The farmers are able to know the effect of pH, organic matter and potassium concentration on adsorption capacity of the soils because the adsorbed potassium concentration fit to Langmuir and Freundlich isotherms and adsorption of potassium differs significantly (p≤ 0.05) with organic matter and pH.

Maize (Zea mays L.) is word's second leading cereal crop in respect of area and production with the possibility of raising two grain crops in a year, it forms important component of the agricultural economy of Pakistan.Drought results in reduced crop yield, pasture deterioration and livestock death. It strongly affects the production of cereals and poses a serious threat to the food security of households, countries and even entire subcontinents. In future the destructive impact of drought may grow, as the climate change becomes a reality. The maize crops may experience reductions of grain yields when submitted to water deficit during the critical period of crop cycle from tesseling stage to beginning of grain filling.The use of genetics to improve drought tolerance and provide yield stability is an important part of the solution to this problem. Present investigation might be helpful for the readers all over the world as it contained plenty of information regarding drought tolerance in Maize.

Attaining food security both at household and national level is the primary objective of all developing countries. Growing of consumer accepted high yielding crops is one of the solutions for those segments of the society that depend on agriculture for their livelihoods. To this end, maize is potentially the most productive cereal crop that prospects the industrialization of tropical countries. The use of high population densities for early maturing maize varieties under irrigated condition has recorded grain yields of up to 8.5 tons/ha which is much higher than that of the yield that is being obtained in the subsistence rain fed agriculture that is not more than 1.5 to 2 tons/ha. Thus, this technology would shed light to small farm households, commercial farmers, and agricultural extension workers who are interested to engage in irrigated agriculture using different water sources.

Gene expression is critical for tumor initiation and progression. However, we lack a comprehensive understanding of all genes that are aberrantly expressed in human cancer. Recently, microarrays have been used to obtain global views of human cancer gene expression and identify genetic markers that might be important for diagnosis and therapy. The initial sequencing of the human genome, coupled with technological advances, now make it possible to embrace the genetic complexity of common human cancers in global fashion. Tools are currently available, or are being developed, for the identification of all changes that take place in cancer at the DNA, RNA, and protein levels. In particular, the use of microarrays for the comprehensive analysis of RNA expression in human tumor samples holds much promise.

Intercropping of cereal and legume is the effective mean for increasing the income of smallholder farmers as it helps in better utilization of resources and ensures higher returns. Smallholder farmers in Mozambique are facing problems of soil fertility decline due to poor and inappropriate soil management practices causing maize yield reduction of up to 1.5 t/ha compared to 7 t/ha obtained in the commercial sector. Smallholder maize farmers cannot cope with the high prices of fertilizers, resulting in continuous low grain yield and food insecurity. Organic inputs alone will not meet the nutritional needs of crops because they contain a comparatively less quantity of nutrients compared to inorganic fertilizers, the need to combine organic and inorganic fertilizer in order to achieve better yields. Increases in temperature, changing patterns of rainfall will have an impact on food production in the future. The development and dissemination risk-reducing management options have the potential to offset the yield losses linked to climate change. This book strives to paint the picture of futurity of agriculture under soil fertility decline and climate change scenarios in Mozambique.

Genes, which are carried on chromosomes are the basic physical and functional units of heredity. In humans, genes are compressed and bundled into a set of 23 pairs of chromosomes, which stabilize and protect the DNA. Gene therapy is an emerging field of biomedicine that has commanded considerable scientific and popular attention. Gene therapy is the insertion, alteration, or removal of genes within an individual's cells and biological tissues to treat disease. It is a technique for correcting defective genes that are responsible for disease development.Gene therapy is having a pervasive and significant impact on areas related to science-based dental practice. Biological research is presenting dentists with more potential treatment options for the future. Gene therapy is in its infancy, and current gene therapy is primarily experimental, with most human clinical trials only in the research stages. Over time and with proper oversight, human gene therapy might become an effective weapon in modern medicine's arsenal to help fight various diseases.

Doctoral Thesis / Dissertation from the year 2007 in the subject Chemistry - Bio-chemistry, grade: Doctorate, University of Innsbruck (Institute of Molecular Biology), language: English, abstract: The maize ZmHda1 is a class II, HDA1-like histone deacetylase. ZmHda1 has been purified to homogeneity and found to be a 48 kDa monomeric protein (Brosch et al., 1996a). However, ZmHda1 specific antibodies can detect two other protein bands of molecular sizes of 84 and 65 kDa on immunoblots indicating that ZmHda1 exists natively in different molecular forms. These two protein forms of ZmHda1 are found in protein complexes of high molecular weights and they are enzymatically inactive (Pipal et al., 2003). Attempts to identify the protein components of the ZmHda1 protein complexes have been made. The second part of this study showed that histone methylation profile in maize embryos quantitatively and qualitatively changes as the germination progresses from 0 to 72 h. The total and chromatin unbound HMT activity decrease during the germination progress, while the chromatin bound HMT activity increases. This increase was most remarkable as an increase in methylation of H4K20 residue and to a lesser extent in mono- and tri- methylated H3K9 and dimethylated H3K36. With the progress of germination, the decrease in dimethylated H3K9 was remarkable. The decrease in H3K4 methylation and dimethylated H4R3 was less pronounced. Seven different histone methyltransferase activities could be separa...

By the mid 19th Century biologists had a big problem to solve - how does heredity work? Charles Darwin (1809-1882) and his cousin Francis Galton (1822-1911) wanted to know because their famous books, The Origin of Species by Natural Selection and Hereditary Genius, only made sense if they understood the basis of inheritance. A lone genius, Gregor Mendel (1822-1884), worked on the inherited of features in hybrids of the edible pea for 8 years, presenting a correct solution in 1865. He was a Catholic monk, priest and later Abbot in the Augustinian Monastery of Brunn, near Vienna. He was able to define the 'gene' and to reveal some of its fundamental properties. It is extraordinary that the talented British team involved in this research, including Charles Darwin, Francis Galton, George Romanes and Karl Pearson all failed to arrive at the truth and this book attempts to explain why.

It was emphasized to engineering abiotic stress tolerance in blackgram by overexpression of the glyoxalase I gene isolated from Brassica juncea under a most widely used CaMV 35S promoter. We have demonstrated for the first the applicability of the glyoxalase system in imparting abiotic stress tolerance in a crop legume Vigna mungo. The transgenic lines were confirmed for gene insertion using different molecular techniques. The expression pattern of the inserted gene/s confirmed the expression and activity of the gene in the all transgenic lines studied up to T2 generations. The in vitro raised plants are usually sensitive to hardening process as well as transplantation. In case of blackgram, the survival rate during hardening and the transplantation was ca. 65-70%. To improve the percentage survival of plants, plant growth promoting Rhizobium and Arbuscular Mycorrhizal fungi were applied during the hardening and transplantation. This resulted in overall survival rate of plants up to 90% in both the transgenics as well as the untransformed control plants. Effect of Rhizobium and Mycorrhiza on transgenic as well as the untransformed control plants was studied. We reported for the first time that the transgenic nature of the plant does not affect association of the plant growth promoting Rhizobacteria or Mycorrhiza. Alleviates transplantation shock of in vitro grown Vigna mungo plants was also observed.

Maize, due to the cultivation of a wide inter-row spacing and relatively slow growth in the early stages, is quite sensitive to competition from weeds. Weeds compete with the crop plants not only for place, light and water but also mineral components, such N, P, K, Ca, Mg, Zn, Cu, Fe, Mn. They are able to accumulate the same or an even greater quantity of minerals than crop plants. Among the weeds in these study were Echinochloa crus-galli, Galinsoga parviflora, Chenopodium album, Cirsium arvense, Polygonum lapathifolium. All the weed species examined were more competitive than the maize in accumulating N, K, Ca and Mg. Galinsoga parviflora was most competitive species for K and P, Cirsium arvense for Ca and N, Chenopodium album and Polygonum lapathifolium for Mg. The ability to uptake micronutrients by weeds had high species specificity. Chenopodium album and Galinsoga parviflora were the most competitive in accumulating Mn, while Cirsium arvense showed high ability to accumulation of Fe. These work showed that weeds are imminent competitors in taking nutrient component relatively to maize plants.

Soil type and irrigation systems could play an important role in determination of yield losses under climate change conditions. This concept is tackled in order to shed a light on the importance of developing a strategy to reduce climate change risk on wheat and maize. Wheat was grown in eight sites and maize was grown in five sites. CropSyst model was calibrated and validated and two climate change scenarios were incorporated in the model. The model was run and the effect of climate change was assessed. The results revealed that the yield of both crops will be reduced under climate change. The percentage of yield reduction depended upon the location of the experimental site, soil type and irrigation system. High yield losses could occur in the Middle of Egypt, compared with the North of Egypt. Furthermore, growing these crops in sandy soil and under surface irrigation will increase yield losses.

Edward and Gene were instantly drawn to each other when they met at college in Maryland. Fast friends, they developed a "closer than brothers" relationship. But then Edward began to feel more for Gene. In 1967, those kind of feelings would not be tolerated. Not even by Edward himself. Gene always thought he was asexual. He had never been attracted to anyone... until he met Edward. He dreamed of Edward as more than a friend throughout college, but he knew Edward would not welcome that kind of attention. So Gene wasn't surprised when Edward reacted badly to a drunken kiss just before Edward's graduation. He was surprised when Edward moved to Florida and had little to do with him for years afterward. When fate finally brings them back together, Edward is married and has a little girl. Gene gladly accepts the role of "Uncle Gene," happy to have Edward in his life in any capacity. Together, they face all the trials and tribulations life throws at them, including the death of Edward's wife, and as each grows and matures, their life views change.

Radish is one of the popular and widely consumed winter vegetable. It is highly cross-pollinated tender tuberous vegetable crop, helps in increasing cropping intensity. Radish has a sporophytical reaction for self-incompatibility. It was used in F1 hybrid seed production by developing male and female parental lines which were self-incompatible lines. The presence of heterosis and availability of pollination control mechanisms such as self- incompatibility in crop plants have proved most efficient tool for obtaining higher returns in advanced agricultural economics. In case of radish, it is very important to develop parental lines on the basis of their self-incompatible mechanism to give superior hybrids without any emasculation process.
