Variations in straw fodder quality and grain–Straw relationships in a mapping population of 287 diverse spring wheat lines
A wheat association mapping population consisting of 287 diverse spring wheat lines were evaluated for three years in one location (Varanasi) and out of these for one year across three locations (Karnal, Dharwad and Varanasi) ...
Joint use of genome, pedigree, and their interaction with environment for predicting the performance of wheat lines in new environments
(Genetics Society of America, 2019)
Genome-enabled prediction plays an essential role in wheat breeding because it has the potential to increase the rate of genetic gain relative to traditional phenotypic and pedigree-based selection. Since the performance ...
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 ...
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 ...
A consensus map for Ug99 stem rust resistance loci in wheat
The global effort to identify new sources of resistance to wheat stem rust, caused by Pucciniagraminis f. sp. tritici race group Ug99 has resulted in numerous studies reporting both qualitative genes and quantitative trait ...
Microsatellite markers for genes Lr34/Yr18 and other quantitative trait loci for leaf rust and stripe rust resistance in bread wheat
(American Phytopathological Society (APS), 2003)
Leaf rust and stripe rust, caused by Puccinia triticina and P. striiformis, respectively, are important diseases of wheat in many countries. In this study we sought to identify molecular markers for adult plant resistance ...
Genetics of leaf rust resistance in brambling wheat
(American Phytopathological Society (APS), 2008)
The CIMMYT-developed spring wheat ‘Brambling’ has a high level of adult-plant resistance (APR) to leaf rust caused by Puccinia triticina. Our objectives were to determine the genetic basis of resistance in ...
Characterization of seedling infection types and adult plant infection responses of monogenic Sr gene lines to race TTKS of Puccinia graminis f. sp. tritici.
(American Phytopathological Society (APS), 2007)
Stem rust, caused by Puccinia graminis f. sp. tritici, historically was one of the most destructive diseases of wheat and barley. The disease has been under effective control worldwide through the widespread use of host ...
Quantitative trait loci of stripe rust resistance in wheat
Over 140 QTLs for resistance to stripe rust in wheat have been published and through mapping flanking markers on consensus maps, 49 chromosomal regions are identified. Abstract: Over thirty publications during the last ...
