Increased prediction accuracy in wheat breeding trials using a marker x environment interaction Genomic Selection model
(Genetics Society of America, 2015)
Genomic selection (GS) models use genome-wide genetic information to predict genetic values of candidates of selection. Originally, these models were developed without considering genotype · environment interaction( G·E). ...
Genetic diversity and linkage disequilibrium using SNP (KASP) and AFLP markers in a worldwide durum wheat (Triticum turgidum L. var durum) collection
(Public Library of Science, 2019)
The aim of this work was to analyze the genetic diversity and linkage disequilibrium in a collection of 168 durum wheat accessions (Triticum turgidum L. var. durum) of different origins. Our collection was mainly composed ...
Hybrid wheat prediction using genomic, pedigree, and environmental covariables interaction models
(Crop Science Society of America, 2019)
In this study, we used genotype × environment interactions (G×E) models for hybrid prediction, where similarity between lines was assessed by pedigree and molecular markers, and similarity between environments was accounted ...
Genetic dissection of grain zinc concentration in spring wheat for mainstreaming biofortification in CIMMYT wheat breeding
(Nature Publishing Group, 2018)
Wheat is an important staple that acts as a primary source of dietary energy, protein, and essential micronutrients such as iron (Fe) and zinc (Zn) for the world?s population. Approximately two billion people suffer from ...
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 ...
Breeding value of primary synthetic wheat genotypes for grain yield
(Public Library of Science, 2016)
To introduce new genetic diversity into the bread wheat gene pool from its progenitor, Aegilops tauschii (Coss.) Schmalh, 33 primary synthetic hexaploid wheat genotypes (SYN) were crossed to 20 spring bread wheat (BW) ...
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 ...
Using molecular marker order to compare genetic structure in plant populations undergoing selection
(UCLA Department of Statistics, 2013)
Many ecological studies compare the genetic structure of populations undergoing natu- ral or artificial selection across different environments. High-throughput molecular markers are now commonly used for these comparisons ...
Genomic selection in wheat breeding using genotyping-by-sequencing
(Crop Science Society of America, 2012)
Genomic selection (GS) uses genome-wide molecular markers to predict breeding values and make selections of individuals or breeding lines prior to phenotyping. Here we show that genotyping-by-sequencing (GBS) can be used ...
