- ... Saffron is the most expensive spice in the world, obtained from the dried stigmas of a triploid sterile plant Crocus sativus (2n=24; x=8). It is widely used as a colorant in foodstuffs and is known for its aromatic and flavoring properties. Saffron is propagated clonally hence collection and conservation of genetic diversity is challenging. Various molecular markers including RAPD, ISSRs and SSRs ...

- ... Foxtail millet [Setaria italica (L.) P. Beauv.] is an important small millet, grown as a short duration, drought tolerant crop across the world. This crop can be grown on wide ranges of soil conditions and has an immense potential for food and fodder in rainfed and arid regions of the India. In the present study, 31 primer pairs (27 SSR and 4 EST-SSR) were used to analyse the genetic diversity in ...
