Erik N. Gomes, Martin Zorde, Harna Patel, Weiting Lyu, Qingli Wu & James E. Simon
Though widely used in the insect repellent, pet toy and essential oil industries, much of the Nepeta genus remains underexplored. A few researchers have made efforts to develop elite genotypes, mainly of the N. cataria species (catnip), with desired traits that are economically relevant in terms of breeding while enhancing or retaining the desired chemical profile of the plant. One of the fundamental aspects for developing improved genotypes is the study of diverse germplasm and,...
