Diversity analysis of 80,000 wheat accessions reveals consequences and opportunities of selection footprints
(Nature Publishing Group, 2020)
Harnessing genetic potential of wheat germplasm banks through impact-oriented-prebreeding for future food and nutritional security
(Nature Publishing Group, 2018)
The value of exotic wheat genetic resources for accelerating grain yield gains is largely unproven and unrealized. We used next-generation sequencing, together with multi-environment phenotyping, to study the contribution ...
Genomic prediction of gene bank wheat landraces
(Genetics Society of America, 2016)
This study examines genomic prediction within 8416 Mexican landrace accessions and 2403 Iranian landrace accessions stored in gene banks. The Mexican and Iranian collections were evaluated in separate field trials, including ...
Unlocking the genetic diversity of Creole wheats
(Nuture 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 models for grain yield of spring bread wheat in diverse agro-ecological zones
(Nature Publishing Group, 2016)
Genomic and pedigree predictions for grain yield and agronomic traits were carried out using high density molecular data on a set of 803 spring wheat lines that were evaluated in 5 sites characterized by several environmental ...
From genebank to field-leveraging genomics to identify and bring novel native variation to breeding pools
(CIMMYT; SAGARPA; CGIAR, 2016)
Potentially valuable genetic variation, the raw material for crop improvement, remains untapped on genebank shelves, at a time when challenges to crop production are unprecedented. Genebanks should NOT be museums. They ...
