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 ...
Predicting grain yield using canopy hyperspectral reflectance in wheat breeding data
(BioMed Central, 2017)
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 spectra, ...
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 ...
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 of breeding values when modeling genotype × environment interaction using pedigree and dense molecular markers
(Crop Science Society of America (CSSA), 2012)
Genomic selection (GS) has become an important aid in plant and animal breeding. Multienvironment (multitrait) models allow borrowing of information across environments (traits), which could enhance prediction accuracy. ...
A high density GBS map of bread wheat and its application for dissecting complex disease resistance traits
(BioMed Central, 2015)
Genotyping-by-sequencing (GBS) is a high-throughput genotyping approach that is starting to be used in several crop species, including bread wheat. Anchoring GBS tags on chromosomes is an important step towards utilizing ...
Genomic prediction of genetic values for resistance to wheat rusts
(Crop Science Society of America, 2012)
Durable resistance to the rust diseases of wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) can be achieved by developing lines that have race-nonspecific adult plant resistance conferred by multiple minor slow-rusting genes. Genomic selection ...
An informational view of accession rarity and allele specificity in germplasm banks for management and conservation
(Public Library of Science, 2018)
Germplasm banks are growing in their importance, number of accessions and amount of characterization data, with a large emphasis on molecular genetic markers. In this work, we offer an integrated view of accessions and ...
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 ...
