Genomic prediction of genetic values for resistance to wheat rusts
(Crop Science Society of America, 2012)
Durable resistance to the rust diseases of wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) can be achieved by developing lines that have race-nonspecific adult plant resistance conferred by multiple minor slow-rusting genes. Genomic selection ...
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 ...
Molecular mapping and validation of SrND643: a new wheat gene for resistance to the stem rust pathogen Ug99 race group
(American Phytopathological Society (APS), 2015)
This study reports the identification of a new gene conferring resistance to the Ug99 lineage of races of Puccinia graminis f. sp. tritici in wheat (Triticum aestivum L.). Because the virulent races of stem rust pathogen ...
Identification of genomic associations for adult plant resistance in the background of popular South Asian wheat cultivar, PBW343
Rusts, a fungal disease as old as its host plant wheat, has caused havoc for over 8000 years. As the rust pathogens can evolve into new virulent races which quickly defeat the resistance that primarily rely on race ...
A high density GBS map of bread wheat and its application for dissecting complex disease resistance traits
(BioMed Central, 2015)
Genotyping-by-sequencing (GBS) is a high-throughput genotyping approach that is starting to be used in several crop species, including bread wheat. Anchoring GBS tags on chromosomes is an important step towards utilizing ...
Progress towards genetics and breeding for minor genes based resistance to Ug99 and other rusts in CIMMYT high yielding spring wheat
Wheat rusts continue to cause significant losses worldwide despite major efforts given to their genetic control. This is due to frequent evolution and selection of virulence in pathogen overcoming the deployed race-specific ...
