Aegilops tauschii draft genome sequence reveals a gene repertoire for wheat adaptation
(Springer Nature, 2013)
About 8,000 years ago in the Fertile Crescent, a spontaneous hybridization of the wild diploid grass Aegilops tauschii (2n = 14; DD) with the cultivated tetraploid wheat Triticum turgidum (2n = 4x = 28; AABB) resulted in ...
Cloning and phylogenetic analysis of phytoene synthase 1 (Psy1) genes in common wheat and related species
(BioMed Central, 2009)
Cloning and phylogenetic analysis of Psy1 genes in common wheat and its relatives would help to understand the genetic diversity and evolution of Psy1 gene in common wheat and its related species. In the present study, ...
Molecular mapping of a non-host resistance gene YrpstY1 in barley (Hordeum vulgare L.) for resistance to wheat stripe rust
(BioMed Central, 2010)
Cultivated barley ( Hordeum vulgare L.) is considered as a non-host or inappropriate host species for wheat stripe rust caused by Puccinia striiformis f. sp. tritici . Most barley cultivars show a broad-spectrum resistance ...
QTL mapping of adult-plant resistance to leaf rust in the wheat cross Zhou 8425B/Chinese spring using high-density SNP markers
Wheat leaf rust is an important disease worldwide. Growing resistant cultivars is an effective means to control the disease. In the present study, 244 recombinant inbred lines from Zhou 8425B/Chinese Spring cross were ...
Lodging resistance and yield potential of winter wheat: effect of planting density and genotype
(Higher Education Press, 2015)
Improved lodging resistance is important for achieving high yield in irrigated environments. This study was conducted to determine genotypic variation in lodging resistance and related morphological traits among winter ...
Strategic crossing of biomass and harvest index—source and sink—achieves genetic gains in wheat
To accelerate genetic gains in breeding, physiological trait (PT) characterization of candidate parents can help make more strategic crosses, increasing the probability of accumulating favorable alleles compared to crossing ...
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 ...
Characterization of Xinjiang local and intoduced wheat germplasm for high molecular weight glutenin subunits and quality-related genes with molecular markers
(Institute of Crop Sciences, 2009)
High molecular weight glutenin subunits (HMW-GS), 1B·1R translocation, polyphenol oxidase (PPO) activities, and yellow pigment content are mostly correlated with the processing quality of common wheat (Triticum aestivum ...
Crop breeding chips and genotyping platforms: progress, challenges, and perspectives
There is a rapidly rising trend in the development and application of molecular marker assays for gene mapping and discovery in field crops and trees. Thus far, more than 50 SNP arrays and 15 different types of ...
Identification of 1BL/1RS translocation based on mixograph parameters in common wheat
(Institute of Crop Sciences, 2009)
lBL/1RS translocation has been widely used for improving agronomic performance and disease resistance in wheat (Triticum aestivum L.), however, it has strong negative effect on processing quality. To develop a method for ...
