Genome-wide association study in wheat identifies resistance to the cereal cyst nematode Heterodera Filipjevi
(American Phytopathological Society (APS), 2016)
The cyst nematode Heterodera filipjevi is a plant parasite causing substantial yield loss in wheat. Resistant cultivars are the preferred method of controlling cyst nematodes. Association mapping is a powerful approach to ...
Association mapping of North American spring wheat breeding germplasm reveals loci conferring resistance to Ug99 and other African stem rust races
(BioMed Central, 2015)
Background: The recently identified Puccinia graminis f. sp. tritici (Pgt) race TTKSK (Ug99) poses a severe threat to global wheat production because of its broad virulence on several widely deployed resistance genes. ...
Elucidating the genetic basis of biomass accumulation and radiation use efficiency in spring wheat and its role in yield potential
(Wiley Open Access; Association of Applied Biologists; Society for Experimental Biology; Blackwell Publishing, 2019)
One of the major challenges for plant scientists is increasing wheat (Triticum aestivum) yield potential (YP). A significant bottleneck for increasing YP is achieving increased biomass through optimization of radiation use ...
Breeding-assisted genomics: applying meta- GWAS for milling and baking quality in CIMMYT wheat breeding program
(Public Library of Science, 2018)
One of the biggest challenges for genetic studies on natural or unstructured populations is the unbalanced datasets where individuals are measured at different times and environments. This problem is also common in crop ...
Genome-wide association mapping for resistance to leaf rust, stripe rust and tan spot in wheat reveals potential candidate genes
Leaf rust (LR), stripe rust (YR) and tan spot (TS) are some of the important foliar diseases in wheat (Triticum aestivum L.). To identify candidate resistance genes for these diseases in CIMMYT?s (International Maize and ...
