Genomic-enabled prediction accuracies increased by modeling genotype × environment interaction in durum wheat
(Crop Science Society of America, 2018)
Genomic prediction studies incorporating genotype × environment (G×E) interaction effects are limited in durum wheat. We tested the genomic-enabled prediction accuracy (PA) of Genomic Best Linear Unbiased Predictor (GBLUP) ...
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 ...
Elite Haplotypes of a Protein Kinase Gene TaSnRK2.3 associated with important agronomic traits in Common Wheat
Plant-specific protein kinase SnRK2s play crucial roles in response to various environmental stimuli. TaSnRK2.3, a SnRK2 member, was involved in the response to multiple abiotic stresses in wheat. To facilitate the use of ...
Genomic prediction with pedigree and genotype X environment interaction in spring wheat grown in South and West Asia, North Africa, and Mexico
(Genetics Society of America, 2017)
Developing genomic selection (GS) models is an important step in applying GS to accelerate the rate of genetic gain in grain yield in plant breeding. In this study, seven genomic prediction models under two cross-validation ...
A direct comparison of remote sensing approaches for high-throughput phenotyping in plant breeding
Remote sensing (RS) of plant canopies permits non-intrusive, high-throughput monitoring of plant physiological characteristics. This study compared three RS approaches using a low flying UAV (unmanned aerial vehicle), with ...
Genomic prediction of gene bank wheat landraces
(Genetics Society of America, 2016)
This study examines genomic prediction within 8416 Mexican landrace accessions and 2403 Iranian landrace accessions stored in gene banks. The Mexican and Iranian collections were evaluated in separate field trials, including ...
Foliar abscisic acid-to-ethylene accumulation and response regulate shoot growth sensitivity to mild drought in wheat
Although, plant hormones play an important role in adjusting growth in response to environmental perturbation, the relative contributions of abscisic acid (ABA) and ethylene remain elusive. Using six spring wheat genotypes ...
Food security through translational biology between wheat and rice
(Wiley Open Access; Association of Applied Biologists, 2015)
Wheat and rice are the most important food crops in agriculture providing around 50% of all calories consumed in the human diet. While both are C3 species, the evolution and domestication of wheat and rice occurred in very ...
Precise estimation of genomic regions controlling lodging resistance using a set of reciprocal chromosome segment substitution lines in rice
(Nature Publishing Group, 2016)
Severe lodging has occurred in many improved rice varieties after the recent strong typhoons in East and Southeast Asian countries. The indica variety Takanari possesses strong culm characteristics due to its large section ...
Integrating islands of knowledge for greater synergy and efficiency in crop research
(Wiley Open Access; Association of Applied Biologists, 2017)
A transnational approach to plant science is required to address global challenges such as food security and climate change. Action from the plant, crop and agricultural science communities will be required to meet these ...
