Wheat and wheat breeding in China
The People's Republic of China, which has the world's largest population (1990 estimate of 1.1 billion), is also the world's largest wheat producer with the crop being grown in 29 of its 30 provinces. As expounded upon in ...
Update on wheat improvement activities in China
(Chinese Academy of Agricultural Science; CIMMYT, 2017)
China/CIMMYT Collaboration on wheat breeding and germplasm exchange: results of 10 years of shuttle breeding (1984-1994)
Maintaining a fruitful working relationship with a country such as China is indispensible for CIMMYT, whose mandate is to improve the productivity and sustainability of wheat and maize production systems all over the ...
Dissecting conserved cis-regulatory modules of Glu-1 promoters which confer the highly active endosperm-specific expression via stable wheat transformation
Wheat high-molecular-weight glutenin subunits (HMW-GS) determine dough elasticity and play an essential role in processing quality. HMW-GS are encoded by Glu-1 genes and controlled primarily at transcriptional level, ...
Comparison of low molecular weight glutenin subunits identified by SDS-PAGE, 2-DE, MALDI-TOF-MS and PCR in common wheat
(BioMed Central, 2010)
Background: Low-molecular-weight glutenin subunits (LMW-GS) play a crucial role in determining end-use quality of common wheat by influencing the viscoelastic properties of dough. Four different methods - sodium dodecyl ...
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 ...
Metabolite‐based genome‐wide association study enables dissection of the flavonoid decoration pathway of wheat kernels
