QTL controlling grain filling under terminal drought stress in a set of wild barley introgression lines
(Public Library of Science, 2017)
MARPLE, a point-of-care, strain-level disease diagnostics and surveillance tool for complex fungal pathogens
(BioMed Central, 2019)
Background: Effective disease management depends on timely and accurate diagnosis to guide control measures. The capacity to distinguish between individuals in a pathogen population with specific properties such as fungicide ...
Genomic Bayesian functional regression models with interactions for predicting wheat grain yield using hyper‑spectral image data
(BioMed Central, 2017)
Modern agriculture uses hyperspectral cameras that provide hundreds of reflectance data at discrete narrow bands in many environments. These bands often cover the whole visible light spectrum and part of the infrared and ...
The plant ontology as a tool for comparative plant anatomy and genomic analyses
(Oxford University Press; Japanese Society of Plant Physiologists, 2012)
The Plant Ontology (PO; http://www.plantontology.org/) is a publicly-available, collaborative effort to develop and maintain a controlled, structured vocabulary (?ontology?) of terms to describe plant anatomy, morphology ...
Genomic prediction using phenotypes from pedigreed lines with no marker data
(Crop Science Society of America (CSSA), 2016)
Until now, genomic prediction (GP) in plant breeding has only used information from individuals that have been genotyped. Information from nongenotyped relatives of genotyped individuals can also be used. Single-step GP ...
Identifying loci with breeding potential across temperate and tropical adaptation via EigenGWAS and EnvGWAS
Understanding the genomic basis of adaptation in maize is important for gene discovery and the improvement of breeding germplasm, but much remains a mystery in spite of significant population genetics and archaeological ...
Pathogenomic analysis of wheat yellow rust lineages detects seasonal variation and host specificity
(Oxford University Press, 2017)
Recent disease outbreaks caused by (re-)emerging plant pathogens have been associated with expansions in pathogen geographic distribution and increased virulence. For example, in the past two decades’ wheat yellow (stripe) ...
Yield gains and associated changes in an early yellow bi-parental maize population following genomic selection for Striga resistance and drought tolerance
(BioMed Central, 2019)
Background: Maize yield potential is rarely maximized in sub-Saharan Africa (SSA) due to the devastating effects of drought stress and Striga hermonthica parasitism. This study was conducted to determine the gains in grain ...
A consensus framework map of durum wheat (Triticum durum Desf.) suitable for linkage disequilibrium analysis and genome-wide association mapping
(BioMed Central, 2014)
Background: Durum wheat (Triticum durum Desf.) is a tetraploid cereal grown in the medium to low-precipitation areas of the Mediterranean Basin, North America and South-West Asia. Genomics applications in durum wheat have ...
