Investigation and genome-wide association study for Fusarium crown rot resistance in Chinese common wheat
(BioMed Central, 2019)
Fusarium crown rot (FCR) is a severe and chronic disease in common wheat and is able to cause serious yield loss and health problems to human and livestock. Here, 234 Chinese wheat cultivars were evaluated in four greenhouse ...
QTL Analysis and nested association mapping for adult plant resistance to Powdery Mildew in two bread wheat populations
CIMMYT wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) lines Francolin#1 and Quaiu#3 displayed effective and stable adult plant resistance (APR) to Chinese Blumeria graminis f. sp. tritici isolates in the field. To elucidate their genetic ...
Association analysis of resistance to cereal cyst nematodes (Heterodera avenae) and root lesion nematodes (Pratylenchus neglectus and P. thornei) in CIMMYT advanced spring wheat lines for semi-arid conditions
(Japanese Society of Breeding, 2016)
To identify loci linked to nematode resistance genes, a total of 126 of CIMMYT advanced spring wheat lines adapted to semi-arid conditions were screened for resistance to Heterodera avenae, Pratylenchus neglectus, and P. ...
QTL mapping of starch granule size in common wheat using recombinant inbred lines derived from a PH82-2/Neixiang 188 cross
Starch is a crucial component determining the processing quality of wheat (Triticum aestivum L.)-based products. Wheat starch generally contains A-type and B-type starch granules, having different effects on starch properties ...
Resistance of slow mildewing genes to stripe rust and leaf rust in common wheat
(Science Press, 2014)
Mapping and pyramiding of qualitative and quantitative resistance to stripe rust in barley
The identification and location of sources of genetic resistance to plant diseases are important contributions to the development of resistant varieties. The combination of different sources and types of resistance in the ...
Identification of genomic regions for grain yield and yield stability and their epistatic interactions
(Nature Publishing, 2017)
The task of identifying genomic regions conferring yield stability is challenging in any crop and requires large experimental data sets in conjunction with complex analytical approaches. We report findings of a first attempt ...
Genome-wide linkage mapping of QTL for yield components, plant height and yield-related physiological traits in the chinese wheat cross Zhou 8425B/Chinese spring
Identification of genes for yield components, plant height (PH), and yield-related physiological traits and tightly linked molecular markers is of great importance in marker-assisted selection (MAS) in wheat breeding. In ...
Allelic variation at the TaZds-A1 locus on wheat chromosome 2A and development of a functional marker in common wheat
Ζ (zeta)-carotene desaturase (ZDS) is a key enzyme for carotenoid biosynthesis, demonstrating high association with the yellow pigment (YP) content in wheat grain. Cloning ZDS gene and developing functional markers are ...
Using the UK reference population Avalon X Cadenza as a platform to compare breeding strategies in elite Western European bread wheat
(Springer Verlag, 2015)
Wheat breeders select for qualitative and quantitative traits, the latter often detected as quantitative trait loci (QTL). It is, however, a long procedure from QTL discovery to the successful introduction of favourable ...
