Genomic selection for processing and end-use quality traits in the CIMMYT spring bread wheat breeding program
(Crop Science Society of America, 2016)
Wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) cultivars must possess suitable end-use quality for release and consumer acceptability. However, breeding for quality traits is often considered a secondary target relative to yield largely ...
Breeding-assisted genomics: applying meta- GWAS for milling and baking quality in CIMMYT wheat breeding program
(Public Library of Science, 2018)
One of the biggest challenges for genetic studies on natural or unstructured populations is the unbalanced datasets where individuals are measured at different times and environments. This problem is also common in crop ...
Strategies for selecting crosses using genomic prediction in two wheat breeding programs
(Crop Science Society of America, 2017)
The single most important decision in plant breeding programs is the selection of appropriate crosses. The ideal cross would provide superior predicted progeny performance and enough diversity to maintain genetic gain. The ...
Wheat quality improvement at CIMMYT and the use of genomic selection on it
The International Center for Maize and Wheat Improvement (CIMMYT) leads the Global Wheat Program, whose main objective is to increase the productivity of wheat cropping systems to reduce poverty in developing countries. ...
Validation of candidate gene-based markers and identification of novel loci for thousand-grain weight in spring bread wheat
Increased thousand-grain weight (TGW) is an important breeding target for indirectly improving grain yield (GY). Fourteen reported candidate genes known to enhance TGW were evaluated in two independent and existing datasets ...
SNP markers for low molecular glutenin subunits (LMW-GSs) at the Glu-A3 and Glu-B3 loci in bread wheat
(Public Library of Science, 2020)
