Current research evaluated suitable morphologic characteristics to cultivate the common bean adapted to Mato Grosso's conditions and furthermore to estimate the genetic divergence, through multi-categorical data, propitiating the identification of genitors which will be able to produce hybrids in programs of local improvement.
56), which indicated kinship between them or common genitors during the new cultivation process.
This is a useful tool because instead of choosing randomly the genitors for the hybrids, they may be chosen by a study on genetic diversity, carrying through and limiting the crossings only with the most promising combinations.
The number of plants analyzed varied from 6 to 9 among hybrids and from 2 to 10 among genitors, depending on their availability.
Irregular chromosome segregation, characterized by precocious chromosome migration to the poles at metaphases (Figure 1b and f), laggard chromosomes at anaphases (Figure 1c and g), leading to micronuclei formation at telophases (1c, d, e, and h) and tetrads (Figure 1i) were recorded in all the hybrids and their genitors in different amounts.
Absence of the first cytokinesis after telophase I was also found in all the male and female genitors and their hybrids (Figure 3), but in different frequencies.
Similarly, most cultures try to ensure that every child have a pater, a father who assumes full responsibility for the child, even if he is not the biological genitor who actually sired the child.
Merely having a genitor in society is not enough, for without a pater, a child is not "recognized," nor "authorized" to receive his parent's property offices, or protection.
Among the other traits, the finding of most significance demonstrated that at least some of the genitors were different from each other in terms of mean genetic frequencies or in the degree of dispersion of these frequencies.
Nevertheless, these inbred lines did not have good values for PE, demonstrating that the best genitors for production are not the best for grain quality.
The genitors will first provide energetic reserves to the eggs, which in turn, will allow larvae to meet their energetic requirements during their development until exogenous food sources are available.
