Assessing genetic diversity to breed competitive biofortified wheat with enhanced grain ZN and FE concentrations
Breeding wheat with enhanced levels of grain zinc (Zn) and iron (Fe) is a cost-effective, sustainable solution to malnutrition problems. Modern wheat varieties have limited variation in grain Zn and Fe, but large-scale ...
Genome-wide association studies of free amino acid levels by six multi-locus models in bread wheat
Genome-wide association studies (GWAS) have been widely used to dissect the complex biosynthetic processes of plant metabolome. Most studies have used singlelocus GWAS approaches, such as mixed linear model (MLM), and ...
Climate change skepticism and index versus standard crop insurance demand in coastal Bangladesh
(Springer Verlag, 2017)
This paper investigates if climate change skepticism, farmers’ fatalistic beliefs, and insurance plan design influence interest in crop weather insurance. While studies of the influence of fatalism on disaster preparedness ...
Sweet sorghum genotypes testing in the high latitude rainfed steppes of the North Kazakhstan (for feed and biofuel)
(David Publishing, 2014)
Twenty-eight sweet sorghum (Sorghum bicolor (L.) Moench) genotypes of the different ecological and geographic origins: Kazakhstan, Russia, India, Uzbekistan, and China were tested in the high latitude rainfed conditions ...
An informational view of accession rarity and allele specificity in germplasm banks for management and conservation
(Public Library of Science, 2018)
Germplasm banks are growing in their importance, number of accessions and amount of characterization data, with a large emphasis on molecular genetic markers. In this work, we offer an integrated view of accessions and ...
An R package for multitrait and multienvironment data with the Item-based collaborative filtering algorithm
(Crop Science Society of America, 2018)
The Item-Based Collaborative Filtering for Multitrait and Multienvironment Data (IBCF.MTME) package was developed to implement the item-based collaborative filtering (IBCF) algorithm for continuous phenotypic data in the ...
Novel molecular marker-assisted strategy for production of wheat-Leymus mollis chromosome addition lines
(Springer Nature, 2018)
Developing wheat–alien chromosome introgression lines to improve bread wheat’s resistance to stresses, such as drought, salinity stress and diseases, requires reliable markers to identify and characterize the alien chromatins. ...
Genome-wide association mapping for resistance to leaf rust, stripe rust and tan spot in wheat reveals potential candidate genes
Leaf rust (LR), stripe rust (YR) and tan spot (TS) are some of the important foliar diseases in wheat (Triticum aestivum L.). To identify candidate resistance genes for these diseases in CIMMYT?s (International Maize and ...
Identification and validation of genomic regions influencing kernel zinc and iron in maize
Bio-fortification of maize with elevated Zinc (Zn) and Iron (Fe) holds considerable promise for alleviating under-nutrition among the world’s poor. Bio-fortification through molecular breeding could be an economical strategy ...
