Article
Cassava mosaic disease caused by cassava mosaic begomoviruses (CMBs) remains one of the major constraints to cassava production since it causes yield losses up to 100%. Researches showed that some of CMBs infecting cassava plants may be coming from non-crop plants. This study intended to identify and characterize CMBs isolated from non-crop plant s...

The genetic diversity of bananas (Musa spp.), one of the most economically important crops in Tanzania, is underestimated with scarce reports available. In addition, cultivation of banana is severely constrained by plant parasitic nematodes (PPN). We assessed genetic diversity and population structure of 159 banana varieties from four agro-ecologic...

Banana (Musa spp. L.) is an important staple food and cash crop for about 30% of the population in Tanzania; however, the burrowing plant-parasitic nematode Radopholus similis causes black head disease and toppling in banana plants, which results in yield losses. We collected and identified 80 specimens of R. similis from four agro-ecological zones...

ABSTRACT: Evaluation of cassava germplasms for in vitro regeneration ability is crucial for stable genetic improvement of this crop via genetic transformation systems. Methods for reliable and efficient transformation including somatic embryo regeneration and recovery of transgenic plants still need to be developed and customized for each cassava g...

Genetic variation at twenty simple sequence repeat (SSR) markers loci was used to evaluate 21 Tanzanian farmerpreferred cassava landraces collected and maintained at Mikocheni Agricultural Research Institute laboratory in Tanzania.Two West African cassava genotypes and one Kenyan cassava were included in the clustering analysis. Genotyping with twe...
