China-CIMMYT collaboration enhances wheat improvement in China
(Higher Education Press, 2019)
China and CIMMYT have collaborated on wheat improvement for over 40 years and significant progress has been achieved in five aspects in China. A standardized protocol for testing Chinese noodle quality has been established ...
Characterization of Fusarium head blight resistance gene fhb1 and its putative ancestor in Chinese wheat germplasm
(Institute of Crop Sciences, 2018)
Enhancing resistance to Fusarium head blight (FHB) has become one of important breeding objectives in the major wheat-growing regions in China. A prominent locus Fhb1 conferring stable FHB resistance with the largest effect ...
Genome-wide association for grain yield under rainfed conditions in historical wheat cultivars from Pakistan
Genome-wide association studies (GWAS) were undertaken to identify SNP markers associated with yield and yield-related traits in 123 Pakistani historical wheat cultivars evaluated during 2011–2014 seasons under rainfed ...
A genome-wide association study reveals a rich genetic architecture of flour color-related traits in bread wheat
Flour color-related traits, including brightness (L∗), redness (a∗), yellowness (b∗) and yellow pigment content (YPC), are very important for end-use quality of wheat. Uncovering the genetic architecture of these traits ...
Genome-wide association studies of free amino acid levels by six multi-locus models in bread wheat
Genome-wide association studies (GWAS) have been widely used to dissect the complex biosynthetic processes of plant metabolome. Most studies have used singlelocus GWAS approaches, such as mixed linear model (MLM), and ...
Dough properties and loaf quality stability in wheat cultivar Jimai 20 and their relationship with protein fractions
(Institute of Crop Sciences, 2007)
A total of 24 samples of newly released high quality cultivar Jimai 20 collected from 2005–2006 cropping season at 24 locations were used to evaluate quality traits, and quantify the protein fractions by reversed-phase ...
Genetic gain of wheat breeding for yield in Northern winter wheat zone over 30 years
(Institute of Crop Sciences, 2007)
Knowledge on genetic gain of yield potential and its associated traits is essential for understanding yield-limiting factors and developing strategies for future variety improvement. Yield potential trials, comprised of ...
Effects of genotype, location, and genotype by location interaction on main wheat quality traits in Inner Mongolia
(Institute of Crop Sciences, 2008)
In our previous investigation on grain quality of Chinese spring sown wheat (Triticum aestivum L.), we sampled two sites from Inner Mongolia and got primary result of location effect on grain quality. To map out the regional ...
Utilization of 1BL/1RS translocation in wheat breeding in China
(Institute of Crop Sciences, 2004)
In total , 179 predominant cultivars in recent 30 years and new breeder’s lines from main ecological zones of China were examined by SDS2PAGE and SCAR for the presence of 1BL/ 1RS. On average , 38 % of Chinese wheats ...
Time-series multispectral indices from unmanned aerial vehicle imagery reveal senescence rate in bread wheat
Detection of senescence's dynamics in crop breeding is time consuming and needs considerable details regarding its rate of progression and intensity. Normalized difference red-edge index (NDREI) along with four other ...
