Durum wheat (Triticum durum Desf.) Mediterranean landraces as sources of variability for allelic combinations at Glu-1/Glu-3 loci affecting gluten strength and pasta cooking quality
(Springer Nature, 2014)
With the aim of identifying durum wheat landraces (LR) with a potential use in breeding programs for gluten strength enhancement, the allelic combinations present at five glutenin loci were determined in a collection of ...
Chapter 1. General introduction
We describe the main characteristics of two approaches to the linear selection indices theory. The first approach is called standard linear selection indices whereas the second of them is called eigen selection index ...
Genome-wide association study for adaptation to agronomic plant density: a component of high yield potential in spring wheat
(Crop Science Society of America (CSSA), 2015)
Previous research has shown that progress in genetic yield potential is associated with adaptation to agronomic planting density, though its genetic basis has not been addressed before. In the current study, a wheat (Triticum ...
Extending the marker x environment interaction model for genomic-enabled prediction and genome-wide association analysis in durum wheat
(Crop Science Society of America (CSSA), 2016)
The marker ´ environment interaction (M´E) genomic model can be used to generate predictions for untested individuals and identify genomic regions in which effects are stable across environments and others that show ...
The relative efficiency of two multistage linear phenotypic selection indices to predict the net genetic merit
(Crop Science Society of America (CSSA), 2019)
Multistage linear phenotypic selection indices predict the individual net genetic merit at different individual ages or stages and are cost-saving strategies for improving several traits. In a two-stage context, we compared ...
Effects of S1 recurrent selection for provitamin A carotenoid content for three open-pollinated maize cultivars
(Crop Science Society of America (CSSA), 2014)
Maize (Zea mays L.) cultivars with increased concentrations of provitamin A (proVA) carotenoids can improve the health of millions of consumers who are vitamin A deficient and rely on maize as a staple food. Three ...
Sashaydiall: A SAS program for hayman’s diallel analysis
(Crop Science Society of America (CSSA), 2018)
Different methods of diallel crossing are commonly used in plant breeding. The diallel cross analysis method proposed by Hayman is particularly useful because it provides information, among others, on additive and dominance ...
