Mining centuries old In situ conserved turkish wheat landraces for grain yield and stripe rust resistance genes
Wheat landraces in Turkey are an important genetic resource for wheat improvement. An exhaustive 5-year (2009–2014) effort made by the International Winter Wheat Improvement Programme (IWWIP), a cooperative program between ...
QTL characterization of fusarium head blight resistance in CIMMYT bread wheat line soru#1
(Public Library of Science, 2016)
Fusarium head blight (FHB) resistant line Soru#1 was hybridized with the German cultivar Naxos to generate 131 recombinant inbred lines for QTL mapping. The population was phenotyped for FHB and associated traits in spray ...
Genome wide association study of karnal bunt resistance in a wheat germplasm collection from Afghanistan
Karnal bunt disease of wheat, caused by the fungus Neovossia indica, is one of the most important challenges to the grain industry as it affects the grain quality and also restricts the international movement of infected ...
Identification of novel quantitative trait loci linked to crown rot resistance in spring wheat
Crown rot (CR), caused by various Fusarium species, is a major disease in many cereal-growing regions worldwide. Fusarium culmorum is one of the most important species, which can cause significant yield losses in wheat. A ...
Characterization and mapping of leaf rust resistance in four durum wheat cultivars
(Public Library of Science, 2018)
Widening the genetic basis of leaf rust resistance is a primary objective of the global durum wheat breeding effort at the International Wheat and Maize Improvement Center (CIMMYT). Breeding programs in North America are ...
Identification and validation of a common stem rust resistance locus in two bi-parental populations
Races belonging to Ug99 lineage of stem rust fungus Puccinia graminis f. sp. tritici (Pgt) continue to pose a threat to wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) production in various African countries. Growing resistant varieties is ...
Stem rust resistance in a geographically diverse collection of spring wheat lines collected from across Africa
Following the emergence of the Ug99 lineage of Puccinia graminis f. sp. tritici (Pgt) a collective international effort has been undertaken to identify new sources of wheat stem rust resistance effective against these ...
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 ...
A wheat chromosome 5AL region confers seedling resistance to both tan spot and Septoria nodorum blotch in two mapping populations
Tan spot (TS) and Septoria nodorum blotch (SNB), caused by Pyrenophora tritici-repentis and Parastagonospora nodorum, respectively, are important fungal leaf-spotting diseases of wheat that cause significant losses in grain ...
Mapping of genetic loci conferring resistance to leaf rust from three globally resistant durum wheat sources
Genetic resistance in the host plant is the most economical and environmentally friendly strategy for controlling wheat leaf rust, caused by Puccinia triticina Eriks. The durum wheat lines Gaza (Middle East), Arnacoris ...
