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 ...
Genomic selection for quantitative adult plant stem rust resistance in wheat
(Crop Science Society of America, 2014)
Quantitative adult plant resistance (APR) to stem rust (Puccinia graminis f. sp. tritici) is an important breeding target in wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) and a potential target for genomic selection (GS). To evaluate the ...
Identification and validation of a common stem rust resistance locus in two bi-parental populations
Races belonging to Ug99 lineage of stem rust fungus Puccinia graminis f. sp. tritici (Pgt) continue to pose a threat to wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) production in various African countries. Growing resistant varieties is ...
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 ...
Global stem rust phenotyping network for wheat improvement
Progress in breeding for resistance to Ug99 and other races of the stem rust fungus in CIMMYT wheat germplasm
(Higher Education Press, 2019)
Races belonging to the Ug99 (TTKSK) lineage of the wheat stem rust fungus, carrying complex virulence combinations, and their migration to countries in Africa, Middle East and Asia continue to pose a significant threat to ...
Emergence and spread of new races of wheat stem rust fungus: continued threat to food security and prospects of genetic control
(American Phytopathological Society (APS), 2015)
Race Ug99 (TTKSK) of Puccinia graminis f. sp. tritici, detected in Uganda in 1998, has been recognized as a serious threat to food security because it possesses combined virulence to a large number of resistance genes found ...
Genetic gain from phenotypic and genomic selection for quantitative resistance to stem rust of wheat
(Crop Science Society of America, 2015)
Stem rust of wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) caused by Puccinia graminis f. sp. tritici Eriks. and E. Henn. is a globally important disease that can cause severe yield loss. Breeding for quantitative stem rust resistance ...
