A wheat chromosome 5AL region confers seedling resistance to both tan spot and Septoria nodorum blotch in two mapping populations
Tan spot (TS) and Septoria nodorum blotch (SNB), caused by Pyrenophora tritici-repentis and Parastagonospora nodorum, respectively, are important fungal leaf-spotting diseases of wheat that cause significant losses in grain ...
Mapping of genetic loci conferring resistance to leaf rust from three globally resistant durum wheat sources
Genetic resistance in the host plant is the most economical and environmentally friendly strategy for controlling wheat leaf rust, caused by Puccinia triticina Eriks. The durum wheat lines Gaza (Middle East), Arnacoris ...
QTL mapping and transcriptome analysis to identify differentially expressed genes induced by Septoria tritici blotch disease of wheat
Resistance to Septoria tritici blotch (STB) is an economically important trait in many wheat-breeding programs across the world. Several quantitative trait loci (QTL) for STB resistance were identified in wheat but due to ...
Two large-effect QTLs, Ma and Ma3, determine genetic potential for acidity in apple fruit: breeding insights from a multi-family study
Acidity is a critical component of the apple fruit consumption experience. In previous biparental family studies, two large-effect acidity QTLs were reported using freshly harvested fruit. Objectives of this study were to ...
