Investigation of the utilization of microsatellites for fingerprinting in three endangered southern African crane species.
Cranes are large elegant birds that occur on all continents of the world except for South America and Antarctica. Of the fifteen species of crane worldwide, three predominantly occur in southern Africa; the Wattled crane ...
Computer simulation of marker-assisted selection utilizing linkage disequilibrium.
The face of animal breeding has changed significantly over the past few decades. Traditionally, the genetic improvement of both plant and animal species focussed on the selective breeding of individuals with superior ...
Individual identification and parentage analysis of Struthio camelus (ostrich) using microsatellite markers.
Ostrich (Struthio camelus) breeding is a well-developed industry in South Africa. However, successful genetic management has yet to be implemented. Parentage in colony breeding ostriches is unknown, where for a given ...
Optimisation of the randomly amplified polymorphic DNA (RAPD) technique for the characterisation of selected South African maize (Zea mays L.) breeding material.
Maize (Zea mays L.) is an important agronomic crop with the maize industry forming an important component of the South African economy. Considerable effort has been directed towards the genetic improvement of maize through ...
