Identification of genomic associations for adult plant resistance in the background of popular South Asian wheat cultivar, PBW343
Rusts, a fungal disease as old as its host plant wheat, has caused havoc for over 8000 years. As the rust pathogens can evolve into new virulent races which quickly defeat the resistance that primarily rely on race ...
Understanding global trends in the use of wheat diversity and international flows of wheat genetic resources
This paper discusses the centers of origin and diversity for bread wheat; sketches historical patterns in the sources and use of wheat genetic resources in modern plant breeding; identifies and compares indicators of genetic ...
Predicting grain yield using canopy hyperspectral reflectance in wheat breeding data
(BioMed Central, 2017)
Background: Modern agriculture uses hyperspectral cameras to obtain hundreds of reflectance data measured at discrete narrow bands to cover the whole visible light spectrum and part of the infrared and ultraviolet light ...
Annotation principles for open wheat data repositories
Unlocking the genetic diversity of Creole wheats
(Nature Publishing Group, 2016)
Climate change and slow yield gains pose a major threat to global wheat production. Underutilized genetic resources including landraces and wild relatives are key elements for developing high-yielding and climate-resilient ...
Genomic prediction using phenotypes from pedigreed lines with no marker data
Until now, genomic prediction (GP) in plant breeding has only used information from individuals that have been genotyped. Information from nongenotyped relatives of genotyped individuals can also be used. Single-step GP ...
