Genetic relationships and structure among open-pollinated maize varieties adapted to eastern and southern Africa using microsatellite markers

Published in Molecular Breeding, 2014 Fentaye Kassa Semagn; Magorokosho, C.; Ogugo, V.; Makumbi, D.; Warburton, M.L. Molecular characterization of open-pollinated maize varieties (OPVs) is fundamentally important in maize germplasm improvement. We investigated the extent of genetic differences, patterns...
