Wheat, barley, and triticale cultivars: a list of publications in which national cereal breeders have noted the cooperation or germplasm they received from CIMMYT
Sustainable cereal production on farmers' fields: that is the ultimate measure of the impact of CIMMYT's research. Its achievement requires a combination of effective technologies and the most appropriate seeds. Over the ...
Application of physiology in wheat breeding
How can disciplinary research in physiology complement wheat breeding? This introductory chapter is intended to provide broad guidelines to help breeding programs: 1) assess whether physiological criteria should be included ...
Proceedings of the Warren E. Kronstad Symposium
On 15-17 of March 2001, CIMMYT held a special symposium in Ciudad Obregón, Sonora, Mexico, in memory of Dr. Warren E. Kronstad, Distinguished Professor at Oregon State University, who died on 21 May 2000, after a two-year ...
The global wheat improvement system: prospects for enhancing efficiency in the presence of spillovers
Through the global analysis and country-level case studies, this report analyzes the efficiency of investments in wheat improvement research at a disaggregated level and explores a range of options for restructuring research ...
Wheat Facts and Futures 2009
For nearly half a century, the international wheat breeding system has delivered improved high yielding varieties of wheat that created (along with rice) the Green Revolution and underpinned strong growth in wheat productivity ...
Complementary strategies to raise wheat yield potential: book of abstracts
The abstracts herein are of presentations by world-renowned experts for the workshop “Complementary strategies to raise wheat yield potential” (10-13 November 2009, CIMMYT-El Batán, Mexico). Sponsored by the United States ...
Comparison between linear and non-parametric regression models for genome-enabled prediction in wheat
(Genetics Society of America, 2012)
In genome-enabled prediction, parametric, semi-parametric, and non-parametric regression models have been used. This study assessed the predictive ability of linear and non-linear models using dense molecular markers. The ...
Efecto de la translocacion 1bl.1rs en la calidad del grano y harina de trigo*
Presence of translocation 1BL.1RS (rye secalin proteins) in wheat genome, it has been associated with different effects on grain quality and dough rheology, depending on genetic background in which is evaluated. This is ...
Population- and genome-specific patterns of linkage disequilibrium and SNP variation in spring and winter wheat (Triticum aestivum L.)
(BioMed Central, 2010)
Background: Single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) are ideally suited for the construction of high-resolution genetic maps, studying population evolutionary history and performing genome-wide association mapping experiments. ...
Comparison of low molecular weight glutenin subunits identified by SDS-PAGE, 2-DE, MALDI-TOF-MS and PCR in common wheat
(BioMed Central, 2010)
Background: Low-molecular-weight glutenin subunits (LMW-GS) play a crucial role in determining end-use quality of common wheat by influencing the viscoelastic properties of dough. Four different methods - sodium dodecyl ...
