Distribution of allelic variation for genes of vernalization and photoperiod among wheat cultivars from 23 countries
(Institute of Crop Sciences, 2011)
Molecular markers for vernalization genes Vrn-A1, Vrn-B1, Vrn-D1 and Vrn-B3 and photoperiod gene Ppd-D1 were used to detect the presence of these genes among 755 cultivars from 23 countries. Days to heading and physiological ...
Mapping QTLs for polyphenol oxidase activity in a DH population from common wheat
(Institute of Crop Sciences, 2005)
The polyphenol oxidase ( PPO) activity is a major factor to cause an undesirable brown discoloration of wheat based end products during processing or storage. A double haploid (DH) population with 71 lines derived from ...
Characterization of mandarin (Citrus spp.) using morphological and AFLP markers
Sixty-three mandarin (Citrus spp.) cultivars from the collection of the Campo Citrícola Experimental Francisco Villa, Tamaulipas, Mexico, were evaluated using morphological and Amplified Fragment Length Polymorphism (AFLP) ...
Molecular mapping of powdery mildew resistance gene in wheat cultivar Jimai 22
(Institute of Crop Sciences, 2009)
Wheat powdery mildew, caused by Blumeria graminis f. sp. tritici, is one of the most important diseases of wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) worldwide. Breeding resistant wheat cultivars is the most economical and effective ...
The screening of wheat germplasm for resistance to stripe and leaf rust in Kazakhstan using molecular markers
(David Publishing, 2012)
Resistance to stripe and leaf rusts is the most important objectives in Kazakhstan, and they are the major factor that adversely affects wheat yield and quality and finally causes considerable economic damage. This study ...
The genetic dissection of quantitative traits in crops
(Pontificia Universidad Católica de Valparaíso, 2010)
Most traits of interest in plant breeding show quantitative inheritance, which complicate the breeding process since phenotypic performances only partially reflects the genetic values of individuals. The genetic variation ...
