Genome-wide association study reveals genomic regions controlling root and shoot traits at late growth stages in wheat
(Oxford University Press, 2019)
Genome-wide association study reveals novel genomic regions associated with 10 grain minerals in synthetic hexaploid wheat
Synthetic hexaploid wheat (SHW; Triticum durum L. × Aegilopstauschii Coss.) is a means of introducing novel genes/genomic regions into bread wheat (T. aestivum L.) and a potential genetic resource for improving grain mineral ...
Wheat stripe rust virulence and varietal resistance in the foot hill Himalayas of Nepal
(David Publishing, 2015)
Resistance of slow mildewing genes to stripe rust and leaf rust in common wheat
(Science Press, 2014)
Stay-green in spring wheat can be determined by spectral reflectance measurements (normalized difference vegetation index) independently from phenology
(Oxford University Press; Society for Experimental Biology, 2012)
The green area displayed by a crop is a good indicator of its photosynthetic capacity, while chlorophyll retention or ?stay-green? is regarded as a key indicator of stress adaptation. Remote-sensing methods were tested to ...
QTL mapping of adult-plant resistance to leaf rust in the wheat cross Zhou 8425B/Chinese spring using high-density SNP markers
Wheat leaf rust is an important disease worldwide. Growing resistant cultivars is an effective means to control the disease. In the present study, 244 recombinant inbred lines from Zhou 8425B/Chinese Spring cross were ...
Genomic and pedigree-based prediction for leaf, stem, and stripe rust resistance in wheat
The unceasing plant-pathogen arms race and ephemeral nature of some rust resistance genes have been challenging for wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) breeding programs and farmers. Hence, it is important to devise strategies ...
Introgression of a gene for high grain protein content (Gpc-B1) into two leading cultivars of wheat in Eastern Gangetic Plains of India through marker assisted backcross breeding
(Academic Journals, 2015)
A wheat genotype named ‘PBW343+Gpc-B1+LR24’ containing Gpc-B1 gene linked with the DNA-based marker Xucw108, developed at Choudhary Charan Singh University (CCSU), Meerut, through marker-assisted selection, was used as ...
A high-density consensus map of common wheat integrating four mapping populations scanned by the 90k SNP Array
A high-density consensus map is a powerful tool for gene mapping, cloning and molecular marker-assisted selection in wheat breeding. The objective of this study was to construct a high-density, single nucleotide polymorphism ...
Novel structural and functional motifs in cellulose synthase (CesA) genes of bread wheat (Triticum aestivum, L.)
(Public Library of Science, 2016)
Cellulose is the primary determinant of mechanical strength in plant tissues. Late-season lodging is inversely related to the amount of cellulose in a unit length of the stem. Wheat is the most widely grown of all the crops ...
