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 ...
Enhanced resistance in wheat against stem rust achieved by marker assisted backcrossing involving three independent Sr genes
Marker assisted backcrossing (MABC) was used to transfer the three stem rust (Puccinia graminis tritici)resistant genes Sr25, SrWeb and Sr50 into the popular Indian wheat cv. HUW234. The donor was theCIMMYT breeding line ...
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 ...
High-density mapping of triple rust resistance in barley using DArT-Seq markers
The recent availability of an assembled and annotated genome reference sequence for the diploid crop barley (Hordeum vulgare L.) provides new opportunities to study the genetic basis of agronomically important traits such ...
Genetic gains in grain yield in spring wheat in Turkey
(The Scientific and Technology Research Council of Turkey, 2017)
Genetic gain for grain yield was evaluated in 35 Turkish spring wheat varieties released between 1964 and 2010. The germplasm comprised varieties developed by the East Mediterranean Agricultural Research Institute (ARI) ...
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 ...
