Genomic resources in plant breeding for sustainable agriculture
Laboratory manual: ICAR-CIMMYT molecular breeding course in wheat
(ICAR; BMZ; CIMMYT, 2013)
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 ...
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. ...
Genome-wide comparative diversity uncovers multiple targets of selection for improvement in hexaploid wheat landraces and cultivars
(National Academy of Sciences, 2013)
Domesticated crops experience strong human-mediated selection aimed at developing high-yielding varieties adapted to local conditions. To detect regions of the wheat genome subject to selection during improvement, we ...
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 ...
