QTL mapping of adult-plant resistance to leaf rust in the wheat cross Zhou 8425B/Chinese spring using high-density SNP markers
Wheat leaf rust is an important disease worldwide. Growing resistant cultivars is an effective means to control the disease. In the present study, 244 recombinant inbred lines from Zhou 8425B/Chinese Spring cross were ...
Progress of wheat breeding in China and the future perspective
(Institute of Crop Sciences, 2011)
During the last ten years, Chinese wheat breeding has mainly made progresses in three aspects, i.e., (1) two sets of cultivars with high yielding potential, improved quality, and multi-resistance to various diseases were ...
Fine mapping of leaf rust resistance gene LrZH84 using expressed sequence tag and sequence-tagged site markers, and allelism with other genes on wheat chromosome 1B
(American Phytopathological Society (APS), 2013)
Zhou 8425B, possessing the leaf rust resistance gene LrZH84, is an elite wheat (Triticum aestivum) parental line in the Yellow-Huai Valley region of China. In the present study, 2,086 F2 plants derived from Zhou 8425B/Chinese ...
QTL mapping for adult plant resistance to powdery mildew in Italian wheat cv. Strampelli
The Italian wheat cv. Strampelli displays high resistance to powdery mildew caused by Blumeria graminis f. sp. tritici. The objective of this study was to map quantitative trait loci (QTLs) for resistance to powdery mildew ...
