    Abstract: Hot pepper is the most important vegetable crop belonging to the family Solanaceae and grown as a spice crop in different parts of the world. Hot pepper is one of the important cash crops to Ethiopian smallholder farmers and an important agricultural commodity which contributes to export earnings. Peppers cultivation in the field are subject to bio... Show More

    Abstract: Hot pepper crop is native to Latin America and belongs to the family Solanceae. The exact time for the introduction of pepper to Africa in general and Ethiopia in particular is not known. In Ethiopia hot pepper (Capsicum annuum) is an economically and traditionally vital crop, and for most Ethiopians food is tasteless without hot pepper. Despite th... Show More

    Abstract: Mutations occur as a result of alterations in DNA or during the replication/cell division process. For agricultural development, plant breeding necessitates genetic variety of valuable features. Multiple mutant alleles, on the other hand, constitute a source of genetic variety for crop breeding and, in many cases, functional investigation of the ta... Show More

    Abstract: Plant breeding, genetics, and genetic engineering all benefit from the use of doubled haploids technology. For genetic mapping of complicated phenotypes, the doubled haploid technique is a useful tool. To make doubled haploids, haploid cells (which are genetically unstable in the first place) can duplicate their genome at any point during their gro... Show More

    Abstract: Climate change is the most dangerous and existing in every of the world including where whether suitable for live or not. Before, a century the headache of climate change impact is very low and focused on industrialization. As economy and civilization rising up, the population number double, tripled or dramatically increased in developing countries... Show More
