Name:Toward a cost-effective fingerprinting methodology to distinguish maize open-pollinated varieties
Description:

This paper, published in Crop Science 50: 1-11, presents methodology to prove within a high level of confidence if two samples of seeds are the same genetic population or not, despite the difficulties involved in fingerprinting heterologous populations. In addition to heterogeneity within populations, difficulties can include sampling errors, differences in the fields or years in which the seeds were multiplied, and seed mixing. Despite these confounding sources of variation, the authors show the possibility to conclusively differentiate each of the populations used in this work. This methodology will allow breeders, seed companies, government agencies, and NGOs to ensure the purity and identity of high-yielding, locally adapted OPVs reach farmers, so they can generate the highest yields possible in their fields.
