QTL mapping of adult-plant resistances to stripe rust and leaf rust in Chinese wheat cultivar Bainong 64
Stripe rust and leaf rust, caused by Puccinia striiformis Westend. f. sp. tritici Erikss. and P. triticina, respectively, are devastating fungal diseases of common wheat (Triticum aestivum L.). Chinese wheat cultivar Bainong ...
A history of wheat breeding in China
Using economics to explain spatial diversity in a wheat crop: examples from Australia and China
Spatial diversity indicators may serve an important function for policymakers as they seek to manage crop genetic diversity and potential externalities associated with diffusion of some types of genetically improved crops. ...
How did China feed itself in the past? how will China feed itself in the future?
Feeding China, the world's most populous nation with more than 1.2 billion people, presents challenges and issues that can be instructive for other developing countries, and of consequence to the global community through ...
Effects of flour extraction rate, added water, and salt on color and texture of Chinese white noodles
Both cultivar and noodle composition and preparation have important effects on noodle quality. In this study, the effects of flour extraction rate (50, 60, and 70%), added water (33, 35, and 37%), and salt concentration ...
Analysis and answers to frequently asked questions in quantitative trait locus mapping
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 ...
Contribution of CIMMYT wheat germplasm to genetic improvement of grain yield in spring wheat of Sichuan, Yunnan, Gansu, and Xinjiang provinces
Information on advances in wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) productivity is essential for genetic improvement on yield potential. Four yield potential trials with totally 59 leading cultivars from Sichuan, Yunnan, Gansu, and ...
Wheat flour, pan bread, and steamed bread qualities of common wheat near-isogenic lines differing in puroindoline b alleles
The alleles at puroindoline b (Pinb) locus affect processing quality of wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) flour. The effects of Pinb alleles have been studies using varieties with different genetic backgrounds, which may interfere ...
