        The U.S. is to permanently scale back its mission to Cuba after what it alleges were series of mystery “attacks” on its diplomats, the State Department said on Friday. These new races crossed with the ancient corns and became the base of the races widely used as germplasm to produce high-yielding varieties and hybrids (García , Fig. C). In , researchers at Purdue University stumbled across a naturally occurring corn mutant that contained about twice as much lysine and tryptophan as its regular Cited by: 4.   For Mexicans, maize is not a crop but a deep cultural symbol intrinsic to daily life. Corn was domesticated from a grass called teocintle by the peoples of Meso-America approximat years ago. Often referred to as humanity’s greatest agronomic achievement, maize is now grown all over the world. The yellow corn commonly found in the United States pales in comparison to the shapes.   Public sector cooperators registered three new lines; 13 new lines developed in Ames, IA were identified for release. New maize races (50) were sampled to explore allelic diversity with private in-kind tropical nursery support. With ISU's J Jane, lines were identified with resistant starch levels of %, useful for control of obesity.

Cuban maize (Zea mays L.) races constitute a potential of high genetic value for Cuba and the Caribbean region. This work was aimed at characterizing Cuban races by means of agro-morphological markers in the national crop collection. Thus, 92 accessions from INIFAT's gene bank were planted; four commercial varieties out of them were used as check: Gíbara, Pajimaca, Victoria and Francisco Author: L.

Maize: Myth and Symbol. The Popol Vuh, the sacred book of the ancient Quiche Maya, relates an origin myth that illustrates the role of maize as the hearth and source of Mayan culture and civilization ing to the Maya, the ancestors were fashioned from maize and bitter water.

This book examines one of the thorniest problems of ancient American archaeology: the origins and domestication of maize. Using a variety of scientific techniques, Duccio Bonavia explores the development of maize, its adaptation to varying climates, and its fundamental role in.

A study was made of the chromosome constitution of 25 races from Mexico, 17 from Guatemala, 6 from Cuba and 1 each from Honduras, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, Haiti, Martinique and Trinidad.

All races were grown at the Agricultural Experiment Station at Chapingo, Mex., operated by the Rockefeller Foundation.

The height of the skull is another measurement which is much respected by craniologists; but they are far from agreed as to the points from which the lines shall be drawn, so that it is difficult to compare their results.3 The “sutures,” or lines of union between the several bones of the skull, present indications of great value.

James C. The history of slavery spans many cultures, nationalities, and religions from ancient times to the present day. However the social, economic, and legal positions of slaves have differed vastly in different systems of slavery in different times and places.

Slavery occurs relatively rarely among hunter-gatherer populations because it develops under conditions of social stratification. Abstract. Future maize genetic gains are dependent on the deployment of useful genetic diversity carried out in the public sector (Smith, ).

In order for these gains to be significant and make impact the incorporation of unique and useful genetic diversity to breeding programs actively improving germplasm and developing cultivars is needed (Carena et al., b).

One of the most cited reasons for traveling to Cuba is its tumultuous history; people want to see where world-changing events happened and how they affected a people, culture and economy that has had such an impact on the world today.

Thousands of years before Columbus sailed from Spain to find the Indies there were settlers on Cuba, immigrants from other islands in the Caribbean.

By the end. Of the two powerful races from the south, the first comers were doubtless the Taïno (as the Antillean Arawak are named), whom the Spaniards found in possession of most of Cuba and of the other greater islands, Porto Rico alone showing a strong Carib element along with the Arawak.
