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 ...
QTL mapping and transcriptome analysis to identify differentially expressed genes induced by Septoria tritici blotch disease of wheat
Resistance to Septoria tritici blotch (STB) is an economically important trait in many wheat-breeding programs across the world. Several quantitative trait loci (QTL) for STB resistance were identified in wheat but due to ...
Karnal bunt: a re-emerging old foe of wheat
Harnessing diversity in wheat to enhance grain yield, climate resilience, disease and insect pest resistance and nutrition through conventional and modern breeding approaches
Current trends in population growth and consumption patterns continue to increase the demand for wheat, a key cereal for global food security. Further, multiple abiotic challenges due to climate change and evolving pathogen ...
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 ...
Investigation and genome-wide association study for Fusarium crown rot resistance in Chinese common wheat
(BioMed Central, 2019)
Fusarium crown rot (FCR) is a severe and chronic disease in common wheat and is able to cause serious yield loss and health problems to human and livestock. Here, 234 Chinese wheat cultivars were evaluated in four greenhouse ...
