An accurate DNA marker assay for stem rust resistance gene Sr2 in wheat
The stem rust resistance gene Sr2 has provided broad-spectrum protection against stem rust (Puccinia graminis Pers. f. sp. tritici) since its wide spread deployment in wheat from the 1940s. Because Sr2 confers partial ...
Genetics of greenbug resistance in synthetic hexaploid wheat derived germplasm
The greenbug, Schizaphis graminum Rondani, significantly reduces wheat, Triticum aestivum L., grain yields if not controlled. Host plant resistance (HPR) can protect yield, is environmentally friendly and easy to use. Our ...
Combining high-throughput phenotyping and genomic information to increase prediction and selection accuracy in wheat breeding
(Crop Science Society of America, 2018)
Genomics and phenomics have promised to revolutionize the field of plant breeding. The integration of these two fields has just begun and is being driven through big data by advances in next-generation sequencing and ...
Genetic structures of the CIMMYT international yield trial targeted to irrigated environments
International yield trials are assembled by CIMMYT to disseminate promising wheat breeding materials worldwide. To assess the genomic structure and linkage disequilibrium (LD) within this germplasm, wheat lines disseminated ...
