QTL mapping for resistance to SCMV in chinese maize germplasm
(Consiglio per la Ricerca e la sperimentazione in Agricoltura, Unità di Ricerca per la Maiscoltura, 2003)
In this report we identified QTLs conferring resistance to Sugarcane Mosaic Virus (SCMV) and their use in marker-assisted selection (MAS) was described. The genetic linkage map covering 1543 cM on ten chromosomes with an ...
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 ...
QTL mapping of grain Zn and Fe concentrations in two hexaploid wheat RIL populations with ample transgressive segregation
More than 50% of undernourished children live in Asia and more than 25% live in Africa. Coupled with an inadequate food supply, mineral deficiencies are widespread in these populations; particularly zinc (Zn) and iron (Fe) ...
Analysis and answers to frequently asked questions in quantitative trait locus mapping
(Institute of Crop Sciences, 2010)
QTL mapping is an important step in gene fine mapping, map-based cloning, and the efficient use of gene information in molecular breeding. Questions are frequently met and asked in the application of QTL mapping in practical ...
Discovery and validation of genomic regions associated with resistance to maize lethal necrosis in four biparental populations
(Springer Verlag, 2018)
In sub-Saharan Africa, maize is the key determinant of food security for smallholder farmers. The sudden outbreak of maize lethal necrosis (MLN) disease is seriously threatening the maize production in the region. Understanding ...
QTLs asociados al contenido de carotenos en hojas de maiz (Zea mays L.)
(Colegio de Postgraduados, 2012)
Los carotenos son pigmentos antioxidantes que captan foto¬nes del espectro de luz visible y protegen a los tejidos de las plantas contra la foto-oxidación, lo cual está relacionado con la tasa fotosintética y rendimiento ...
Predicting hybrid performances for quality traits through genomic-assisted approaches in Central European wheat
(Public Library of Science, 2016)
Bread-making quality traits are central targets for wheat breeding. The objectives of our study were to (1) examine the presence of major effect QTLs for quality traits in a Central European elite wheat population, (2) ...
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 ...
QTL mapping for adult plant resistance to powdery mildew in Italian wheat cv. Strampelli
The Italian wheat cv. Strampelli displays high resistance to powdery mildew caused by Blumeria graminis f. sp. tritici. The objective of this study was to map quantitative trait loci (QTLs) for resistance to powdery mildew ...
QTL mapping for adult-plant resistance to stripe rust in a common wheat RIL population derived from Chuanmai 32/Chuanyu 12
Stripe rust, caused by Puccinia striiformis f. sp. tritici, is a devastating wheat disease worldwide. The Chinese wheat cultivar Chuanmai 32 has shown stable resistance to stripe rust for 10 yr in Sichuan Province, a hotspot ...
