QTL mapping for grain zinc and iron concentrations in bread wheat
Allelic variation at the TaZds-A1 locus on wheat chromosome 2A and development of a functional marker in common wheat
Ζ (zeta)-carotene desaturase (ZDS) is a key enzyme for carotenoid biosynthesis, demonstrating high association with the yellow pigment (YP) content in wheat grain. Cloning ZDS gene and developing functional markers are ...
Genome-wide linkage mapping of QTL for yield components, plant height and yield-related physiological traits in the chinese wheat cross Zhou 8425B/Chinese spring
Identification of genes for yield components, plant height (PH), and yield-related physiological traits and tightly linked molecular markers is of great importance in marker-assisted selection (MAS) in wheat breeding. In ...
Mapping QTLs for polyphenol oxidase activity in a DH population from common wheat
(Institute of Crop Sciences, 2005)
The polyphenol oxidase ( PPO) activity is a major factor to cause an undesirable brown discoloration of wheat based end products during processing or storage. A double haploid (DH) population with 71 lines derived from ...
Genome-wide association for grain morphology in synthetic hexaploid wheats using digital imaging analysis
(licensee BioMed Central Ltd, 2014)
Grain size and shape greatly influence grain weight which ultimately enhances grain yield in wheat. Digital imaging (DI) based phenomic characterization can capture the three dimensional variation in grain size and shape ...
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 ...
