Polaris Gold is a late-maturing, yellow-fleshed, beige-yellow skinned cultivar with round tubers and an established reputation for culinary versatility and excellent flavor. Tuber size distribution favors large tubers when the crop is allowed to completely bulk, and small-to-medium tubers when harvested in an interval typical for specialty table-st...
Key message: More than 40 QTLs associated with 14 stress-related, quality and agro-morphological traits were identified. A catalogue of favourable SNP markers for MAS and a list of candidate genes are provided. Cassava (Manihot esculenta) is one of the most important starchy root crops in the tropics due to its adaptation to marginal environments....
Background African Yam Bean (AYB) is an understudied and underutilized tuberous legume of tropical West and Central African origin. In these geographical regions, both seeds and tubers of AYB are important components of people’s diets and a potential target as a nutritional security crop. The understanding of the genetic diversity among AYB accessi...
White Guinea yam (Dioscorea rotundataPoir.) is indigenous to West Africa, a region that harbors the crop’s tremendous landrace diversity. The knowledge and understanding of localcultivars’ genetic diversity are essential for properly managing genetic resources, conservation, sustainable use, and their improvement through breeding. This study aimed...

Cassava (Manihot esculenta) is one of the most important starchy root crops in the tropics due to its adaptation to marginal environments. Genetic progress in this clonally propagated crop can be accelerated through the discovery of markers and candidate genes that could be used in cassava breeding programs. We carried out a genome-wide association...
The International Institute of Tropical Agriculture maintains the world’s largest collection of cowpea germplasm of over 15,000 accessions. A sub-set of 298 lines from the loosely composed mini core collection of 370 landraces were genotyped based on genotyping by sequencing (GBS). Ward’s minimum variance hierarchical cluster analysis, model-based...
Cassava is a major staple crop in most part of the world especially in Africa feeding 500 million people. Improvement records for the crop especially for disease resistance shows significant hybridization with the wild species M.glaziovii. However, little is known about the event that accompanied the disease resistant transformation of the African...
