The joint division works with other food agencies and plant breeding centres, universities and regional agricultural groups, providing induced mutation
expertise and support where needed.
Thus in the present study the important desirable characters, which had been achieved through induced mutation
include high yield, grain quality, early maturity, disease resistance, improved plant type and better protein, oil and fatty acids.
Abasin-95', A new oilseed rape cultivar developed through induced mutations
These induced mutations
aid to develop many agronomic important traits such as shorter growing period suitable for rotation increased tolerance and resistance to biotic and a biotic stress (Oudat 1990 Kuksova et al.
The improvement in polygeneic characters through induced mutations
might be due to genetic changes in certain other related but simply inherited characters which could have possitive effect on seed yield and oil content (Micke et al.
7] Induced Mutation
Frequency (I) Strain (120 [micro]g/mL daunomycin) Induction Fold (I/S) TA7001 2.
in Mungbean breeding: Regional yield trial of mungbean mutant lines.
This study provides an extensive research on the induced mutations
through (g) gamma rays used on pollen grains (germ cell) in cotton and variations in succeeding generations.
Present results indicate that induced mutations
are random, polydirectional and quantitative in nature and cause heritable changes in polygenic systems.
This variation could be a result of stress-induced re-arrangement or duplication in the 18S rDNA gene as opposed to evidence of pyrimidine dimer formation or UV-B induced mutations
resulting in loss of DraI sites .
It showed a dose dependent inhibition of IQ induced mutations
but no inhibition of 4-NQNO induced mutations
Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (Campbell, Australia); Biogemma SAS (Paris, France); and Goodman Fielder PTY Limited (Sydney, Australia) have patented isolated nucleic acid molecules encoding wheat starch syntheses, and probes and primers derived therefrom, which are useful in the modificaiton of plant starch content and/or composition, and for screening plant lines to determine the presence of natural and/or induced mutations
in starch synthase genes which affect starch content and/or composition.
