Genome-wide analyses reveal footprints of divergent selection and popping-related traits in CIMMYT’s maize inbred lines
(Oxford University Press, 2020)
Identification of novel quantitative trait loci linked to crown rot resistance in spring wheat
Crown rot (CR), caused by various Fusarium species, is a major disease in many cereal-growing regions worldwide. Fusarium culmorum is one of the most important species, which can cause significant yield losses in wheat. A ...
Genome-wide association study to identify genomic regions influencing spontaneous fertility in maize haploids
Efficient production and use of doubled haploid lines can greatly accelerate genetic gains in maize breeding programs. One of the critical steps in standard doubled haploid line production is doubling the haploid genome ...
Association mapping of North American spring wheat breeding germplasm reveals loci conferring resistance to Ug99 and other African stem rust races
(BioMed Central, 2015)
Background: The recently identified Puccinia graminis f. sp. tritici (Pgt) race TTKSK (Ug99) poses a severe threat to global wheat production because of its broad virulence on several widely deployed resistance genes. ...
Genome-wide association for grain yield under rainfed conditions in historical wheat cultivars from Pakistan
Genome-wide association studies (GWAS) were undertaken to identify SNP markers associated with yield and yield-related traits in 123 Pakistani historical wheat cultivars evaluated during 2011–2014 seasons under rainfed ...
Elucidating the genetic basis of biomass accumulation and radiation use efficiency in spring wheat and its role in yield potential
(Wiley Open Access; Association of Applied Biologists; Society for Experimental Biology; Blackwell Publishing, 2019)
One of the major challenges for plant scientists is increasing wheat (Triticum aestivum) yield potential (YP). A significant bottleneck for increasing YP is achieving increased biomass through optimization of radiation use ...
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 ...
