  3. Meaning Hybrid : Any sort of sexual or somatic combination

    of genetically more or less differentiated parental cells, individuals, or taxa; specifically, an individual plant from a cross between parents of differing genotypes; any heterozygote represents dissimilar alleles at a given locus; or a hybrid graft gene. Hybrid breeding (syn heterosis breeding): Involves the transfer of genes from one source or genetic background to another, or combining genes from different sources that complement each other, with the hope that the new cultivar will combine the best of both parents. The term hybridization is prone to ambiguity. The concept of a cross between individuals from two distinct groups is superficially simple, but uncertainty arises in defining distinct groups. Harrison, 1990 defined hybridization as a cross between individuals from separate populations that differ in one or more heritable traits. In flowering species, sexual hybridization is the commonly occuring mode of hybridization. Natural hybridization Artifical hybridization 3 / 15

  6. Preconditions Parents should belong to same or closely related species

    Parents should together supply the critical genes needed to accomplish the breeding objective. One parent is usually designated female. Whereas some breeding methods may not require this designation, breeders usually select one parent to be female and the other a male (pollen source). The female parent usually needs some special preparation (Emasculation in complete flowers) Pollen is often physically or manually transferred Pollination control techniques Mechanical control Chemical control Genetic control 6 / 15
  7. Flower and owering issues in hybridization Flower health and induction

    Synchronization of flowering Selecting female parent and suitable flowers Considerations of pollination Successful pollination depends on pollen maturity, quality (freshness), and timing of pollination, among other factor. Considerations: Collection and storage Application of pollen Tagging after pollination 7 / 15

  10. Subsequent e ects The variability in an F2 population as

    affected by the number of genes that are different between the two parents Number of heterozygous loci (n) Number of heterozygotes in the F2 (2^n) Number of different genotypes in the F2 (3^n) Minimum population size for chance to include each genotype (4^n) 1 2 3 4 2 4 9 16 3 8 27 64 4 16 81 256 5 32 243 1024 10 1024 59049 1048576 15 32768 14348907 1073741824 10 / 15
  11. Subsequent e ects (...continued) Gene recombination in F2 Factors that

    determine the number of gene recombinations that would be observed in an F2 population: The number of gene loci for which the parents in a cross differ. The number of alleles at each locus. The linkage of the gene loci. ... 11 / 15

  15. Bridge cross An example of a bridge cross. To hybridize

    Italian ryegrass and tall fescue, the breeder may firstly make an intermediary cross with meadowgrass, followed chromosome doubling. 15 / 15
