Fast-forwarding genetic gain
Speed breeding’ enables scientists to exploit gene bank accessions and mutant collections for an unparalleled rapid gene discovery and gene deployment. Combining speed breeding and other leading-edge plant breeding ...
Genome-wide association mapping of black point reaction in common wheat (Triticum aestivum L.)
(BioMed Central, 2017)
Black point is a serious threat to wheat production and can be managed by host resistance. Marker-assisted selection (MAS) has the potential to accelerate genetic improvement of black point resistance in wheat breeding. ...
Crop breeding chips and genotyping platforms: progress, challenges, and perspectives
There is a rapidly rising trend in the development and application of molecular marker assays for gene mapping and discovery in field crops and trees. Thus far, more than 50 SNP arrays and 15 different types of ...
Genome-wide association for grain morphology in synthetic hexaploid wheats using digital imaging analysis
(licensee BioMed Central Ltd, 2014)
Grain size and shape greatly influence grain weight which ultimately enhances grain yield in wheat. Digital imaging (DI) based phenomic characterization can capture the three dimensional variation in grain size and shape ...
Genome-wide association for grain yield under rainfed conditions in historical wheat cultivars from Pakistan
Genome-wide association studies (GWAS) were undertaken to identify SNP markers associated with yield and yield-related traits in 123 Pakistani historical wheat cultivars evaluated during 2011–2014 seasons under rainfed ...
Time-series multispectral indices from unmanned aerial vehicle imagery reveal senescence rate in bread wheat
Detection of senescence's dynamics in crop breeding is time consuming and needs considerable details regarding its rate of progression and intensity. Normalized difference red-edge index (NDREI) along with four other ...
Genome-wide linkage mapping of QTL for yield components, plant height and yield-related physiological traits in the chinese wheat cross Zhou 8425B/Chinese spring
Identification of genes for yield components, plant height (PH), and yield-related physiological traits and tightly linked molecular markers is of great importance in marker-assisted selection (MAS) in wheat breeding. In ...
China-CIMMYT collaboration enhances wheat improvement in China
(Higher Education Press, 2019)
China and CIMMYT have collaborated on wheat improvement for over 40 years and significant progress has been achieved in five aspects in China. A standardized protocol for testing Chinese noodle quality has been established ...
