Genetic Analysis of Leaf Rust Resistance in Six Durum Wheat Genotypes
(American Phytopathological Society (APS), 2014)
Leaf rust, caused by Puccinia triticina, is one of the main fungal diseases limiting durum wheat production. This study aimed to characterize previously undescribed genes for leaf rust resistance in durum wheat. Six different ...
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. ...
Characterization and mapping of Leaf Rust and Stripe Rust resistance loci in hexaploid wheat lines UC1110 and PI610750 under Mexican environments
Growing resistant wheat varieties is a key method of minimizing the extent of yield losses caused by the globally important wheat leaf rust (LR) and stripe rust (YR) diseases. In this study, a population of 186 F8 recombinant ...
Mining centuries old In situ conserved turkish wheat landraces for grain yield and stripe rust resistance genes
Wheat landraces in Turkey are an important genetic resource for wheat improvement. An exhaustive 5-year (2009–2014) effort made by the International Winter Wheat Improvement Programme (IWWIP), a cooperative program between ...
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 ...
Stem rust resistance in a geographically diverse collection of spring wheat lines collected from across Africa
Following the emergence of the Ug99 lineage of Puccinia graminis f. sp. tritici (Pgt) a collective international effort has been undertaken to identify new sources of wheat stem rust resistance effective against these ...
