Genome-wide association mapping for resistance to leaf rust, stripe rust and tan spot in wheat reveals potential candidate genes
Leaf rust (LR), stripe rust (YR) and tan spot (TS) are some of the important foliar diseases in wheat (Triticum aestivum L.). To identify candidate resistance genes for these diseases in CIMMYT’s (International Maize and ...
Genetics for low correlation between Fusarium head blight disease and deoxynivalenol (DON) content in a bread wheat mapping population
Key message: Two QTL with major effects on DON content reduction were identified on chromosomes 3BL and 3DL, with the former showing minor and the latter showing no effects on FHB resistance. Abstract: Deoxynivalenol (DON) ...
Genetics of leaf rust and stripe rust resistance in spring wheat cultivar ‘Kijil’
(CIMMYT; INIFAP; COLPOS, 2018)
Leaf rust and stripe rust caused by the fungi Puccinia triticina and P. striiformis f. sp. tritici, respectively, are important diseases of wheat and represent a significant threat in most wheat producing regions worldwide. ...
Quantitative trait loci of stripe rust resistance in wheat
Over 140 QTLs for resistance to stripe rust in wheat have been published and through mapping flanking markers on consensus maps, 49 chromosomal regions are identified. Abstract: Over thirty publications during the last ...
Genetic gains for grain yield in CIMMYT’s semi-arid wheat yield trials grown in suboptimal environments
(Crop Science Society of America (CSSA), 2018)
Wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) is a major staple food crop grown worldwide on >220 million ha. Climate change is regarded to have severe effect on wheat yields, and unpredictable drought stress is one of the most important ...
A singular value decomposition Bayesian multiple-trait and multiple-environment genomic model
(Springer Nature, 2019)
Today, breeders perform genomic-assisted breeding to improve more than one trait. However, frequently there are several traits under study at one time, and the implementation of current genomic multiple-trait and ...
Lr72 confers resistance to leaf rust in durum wheat cultivar Atil C2000
(American Phytopathological Society (APS), 2014)
Leaf rust, caused by Puccinia triticina (Pt), has become a globally important disease for durum wheat (Triticum turgidum subsp. durum) since the detection of race group BBG/BN, which renders ineffective a widely deployed ...
