Genetic architecture of maize chlorotic mottle virus and maize lethal necrosis through GWAS, linkage analysis and genomic prediction in tropical maize germplasm
Maize lethal necrosis (MLN) is a serious threat to the food security of maize-growing smallholders in sub-Saharan Africa. The ability of the maize chlorotic mottle virus (MCMV) to interact with other members of the Potyviridae ...
Hydrogen peroxide prompted lignification affects pathogenicity of hemi-biotrophic pathogen Bipolaris sorokiniana to wheat
(Korean Society of Plant Pathology, 2019)
Spot blotch caused by Bipolaris sorokiniana has spread to more than 9 million ha of wheat in the warm, humid areas of the Eastern Gangetic Plains (EGP) of South Asia and is a disease of major concern in other similar wheat ...
Resistance to cereal cyst nematodes in wheat and barley: an emphasis on classical and modern approaches
Cereal cyst nematodes (CCNs) are among the most important nematode pests that limit production of small grain cereals like wheat and barley. These nematodes alone are estimated to reduce production of crops by 10% globally. ...
Genome editing, gene drives, and synthetic biology: will they contribute to disease-resistance crops, and who will benefit?
(Annual Reviews Inc., 2019)
Genetically engineered crops have been grown for more than 20 years, resulting in widespread albeit variable benefits for farmers and consumers. We review current, likely, and potential genetic engineering (GE) applications ...
Unravelling the complex genetics of karnal bunt (Tilletia indica) resistance in common wheat (Triticum aestivum) by genetic linkage and genome-wide association analyses
(Genetics Society of America, 2019)
Karnal bunt caused by Tilletia indica Mitra [syn. Neovossia indica (Mitra) Mundkur] is a significant biosecurity concern for wheat-exporting countries that are free of the disease. It is a seed-, soil-and air-borne disease ...
Mapping of genetic loci conferring resistance to leaf rust from three globally resistant durum wheat sources
Genetic resistance in the host plant is the most economical and environmentally friendly strategy for controlling wheat leaf rust, caused by Puccinia triticina Eriks. The durum wheat lines Gaza (Middle East), Arnacoris ...
Synthetic hexaploid wheat: yesterday, today, and tomorrow
(Elsevier; Chinese Academy Of Engineering, 2018)
In recent years, wheat yield per hectare appears to have reached a plateau, leading to concerns for future food security with an increasing world population. Since its invention, synthetic hexaploid wheat (SHW) has been ...
Characterization of Ethiopian wheat germplasm for resistance to four Puccinia graminis f. sp. tritici races facilitated by single-race nurseries
(American Phytopathological Society (APS), 2019)
In Ethiopia, breeding rust resistant wheat cultivars is a priority for wheat production. A stem rust epidemic during 2013 to 2014 on previously resistant cultivar Digalu highlighted the need to determine the effectiveness ...
QTL mapping and transcriptome analysis to identify differentially expressed genes induced by Septoria tritici blotch disease of wheat
Resistance to Septoria tritici blotch (STB) is an economically important trait in many wheat-breeding programs across the world. Several quantitative trait loci (QTL) for STB resistance were identified in wheat but due to ...
