Lr68: a new gene conferring slow rusting resistance to leaf rust in wheat
The common wheat cultivar Parula possesses a high level of slow rusting, adult plant resistance (APR) to all three rust diseases of wheat. Previous mapping studies using an Avocet-YrA/Parula recombinant inbred line (RIL) ...
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 ...
Genomic-enabled prediction with classification algorithms
(Springer Nature, 2014)
Pearson’s correlation coefficient (ρ) is the most commonly reported metric of the success of prediction in genomic selection (GS). However, in real breeding ρ may not be very useful for assessing the quality of the regression ...
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 ...
Lr72 confers resistance to leaf rust in durum wheat cultivar Atil C2000
(American Phytopathological Society, 2014)
Leaf rust, caused by Puccinia triticina (Pt), has become a globally important disease for durum wheat (Triticum turgidum subsp. durum) since the detection of race group BBG/BN, which renders ineffective a widely deployed ...
Genetics of wheat-Pyrenophora tritici-repentis interactions
Tan spot, caused by an ascomycete fungus Pyrenophora tritici-repentis, is one of the most devastating foliar diseases of wheat. This fungus induces two distinct symptoms, tan necrosis and extensive chlorosis, on susceptible ...
Mapping Yr28 and other genes for resistance to stripe rust in wheat
Stripe (yellow) rust, caused by Puccinia striiformis West., is an important constraint to wheat production in cool environments. With the purpose of identifying genes for resistance to the disease, a RFLP mapping population ...
Strategies for selecting crosses using genomic prediction in two wheat breeding programs
The single most important decision in plant breeding programs is the selection of appropriate crosses. The ideal cross would provide superior predicted progeny performance and enough diversity to maintain genetic gain. The ...
QTL Analysis and nested association mapping for adult plant resistance to Powdery Mildew in two bread wheat populations
CIMMYT wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) lines Francolin#1 and Quaiu#3 displayed effective and stable adult plant resistance (APR) to Chinese Blumeria graminis f. sp. tritici isolates in the field. To elucidate their genetic ...
