Genetic contribution of synthetic hexaploid wheat to CIMMYT’s spring bread wheat breeding germplasm
(Nature Publishing Group, 2019)
Synthetic hexaploid (SH) wheat (AABBD’D’) is developed by artificially generating a fertile hybrid between tetraploid durum wheat (Triticum turgidum, AABB) and diploid wild goat grass (Aegilops tauschii, D’D’). Over three ...
Wheat molecular breeding laboratory
Uso de marcadores moleculares en el mejoramiento de la calidad de trigo II: marcadores moleculares en variedades de trigo harinero mexicanas
El trigo es el cuarto mayor cultivo a nivel mundial, con una producción cercana a las 716 millones de toneladas. La calidad del trigo es un carácter altamente complejo, controlado principalmente por factores genéticos, ...
Integrating genomic-enabled prediction and high-throughput phenotyping in breeding for climate-resilient bread wheat
Genomic selection and high-throughput phenotyping (HTP) are promising tools to accelerate breeding gains for high-yielding and climate-resilient wheat varieties. Hence, our objective was to evaluate them for predicting ...
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 ...
Genomic-enabled prediction with classification algorithms
(Springer Nature, 2014)
Pearson’s correlation coefficient (ρ) is the most commonly reported metric of the success of prediction in genomic selection (GS). However, in real breeding ρ may not be very useful for assessing the quality of the regression ...
