Yr60, a gene conferring moderate resistance to stripe rust in wheat
Stripe rust, caused by Puccinia striiformis f. sp. tritici W., is a devastating disease of wheat worldwide. A new stripe rust resistance gene with moderate seedling and adult plant resistance was mapped using an F5 recombinant ...
China-CIMMYT collaboration enhances wheat improvement in China
(Higher Education Press, 2019)
High-density mapping of triple rust resistance in barley using DArT-Seq markers
The recent availability of an assembled and annotated genome reference sequence for the diploid crop barley (Hordeum vulgare L.) provides new opportunities to study the genetic basis of agronomically important traits such ...
Genetic gain from phenotypic and genomic selection for quantitative resistance to stem rust of wheat
Stem rust of wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) caused by Puccinia graminis f. sp. tritici Eriks. and E. Henn. is a globally important disease that can cause severe yield loss. Breeding for quantitative stem rust resistance ...
Efficient use of historical data for genomic selection: a case study of stem rust resistance in wheat
Genomic selection (GS) is a methodology that can improve crop breeding efficiency. To implement GS, a training population (TP) with phenotypic and genotypic data is required to train a statistical model used to predict ...
Suppression expression of resistance to stripe rust in synthetic hexaploid wheat (Triticum turgidum x T. tauschii)
Some 74 hexaploid wheats, synthesized by either crossing resistant Triticum turgidum var. durum [T. durum] with susceptible/intermediate T. tauschii [Aegilops squarrosa] or susceptible/intermediate T. turgidum with resistant ...
Genetic analysis of resistance to leaf rust and yellow rust in spring wheat cultivar Kenya Kongoni
The Kenyan wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) ‘Kenya Kongoni’ exhibits high levels of adult plant resistance (APR) to leaf rust (LR) and yellow rust (YR). We determined the genomic regions associated with LR and YR resistance ...
