Assessing rice and wheat germplasm collections using similarity groups
(Springer Nature, 2014)
Central crop databases or registries are important tools to enhance the use and conservation of plant genetic resources. In 2008–2009 a group of Centers from the Consultative Group on International Agricultural Research ...
Novel structural and functional motifs in cellulose synthase (CesA) genes of bread wheat (Triticum aestivum, L.)
(Public Library of Science, 2016)
Cellulose is the primary determinant of mechanical strength in plant tissues. Late-season lodging is inversely related to the amount of cellulose in a unit length of the stem. Wheat is the most widely grown of all the crops ...
An assessment of wheat yield sensitivity and breeding gains in hot environments
Genetic improvements in heat tolerance of wheat provide a potential adaptation response to long-term warming trends, and may also boost yields in wheat-growing areas already subject to heat stress. Yet there have been few ...
Dissecting of the FHB resistance QTL on the short arm of wheat chromosome 2D using a comparative genomic approach: from QTL to candidate gene
Colinearity in gene content and order between rice and closely related cereal crops has been a powerful tool for gene identification. Using a comparative genomic approach, we have identified the rice genomic region syntenous ...
Identification of QTL associated with durable adult plant resistance to stem rust race Ug99 in wheat cultivar 'Pavon 76'
Stem rust of wheat, caused by Puccinia graminis f. sp. tritici, was under control worldwide for over 30 years by utilizing genetic resistance. The emergence of stem rust in 1998 in eastern Africa in form of race Ug99 and ...
